Facebook Aperture Exporter
This is a simple exporter plugin for Apple's Aperture. I wasn't happy with the built-in syncing Aperture 3 has, and the existing export plugin for Facebook wouldn't work for me. Plus, that author wasn't returning my emails to try and get it to work. So I wrote my own.
This repository hosts the source code, documentation and is the place to report issues. The downloads are located at Bitbucket
- Logging in and out of a Facebook account
- Album creation with privacy and selection (where to upload the photos to)

- Option to use IPTC headline instead of caption as photo title (Issue #9)
- Sparkle updating
- Growl notifications
Known Limitations and Issues
- The export progress information in the Activity panel is pretty much broken. At least you know it is still exporting.
- The caption for a created Facebook album is not set. Still figuring out why that is the case.
Nice Features to Have
- Choose whether to use the Title or Description from each photo to use as the photo's caption on Facebook (currently uses the title).
- Add a tag to all uploaded photos
