iStockphoto for Aperture
iStockphoto, a community-powered marketplace for stock photography, illustrations and videos, today announced a new plug-in for Aperture 1.5, the latest version of Apple's post-production tool for photographers. This tool allows iStockphoto artists to use Aperture to manage and tag their images, and batch-upload them directly to iStockphoto.com. The plug-in automatically pulls keyword and metadata information from Aperture, streamlining photographers' workflow and saves them time, the company said. "iStockphoto is home to more than 25,000 photographers and we think Aperture is the perfect image workflow production tool for these artists," said Bruce Livingstone, CEO of iStockphoto. "By using our new plug-in for Aperture, our photographers have the ability to batch-upload their images directly to our site with all the right tags in place, greatly simplifying and streamlining the entire process." The iStockphoto plug-in takes advantage of Aperture 1.5's new plug-in API, and can be downloaded for free.
