Lightbox XMP released
Lightbox Software today released Lightbox XMP (site not updated), an export plugin for Apple's Aperture post production photography software that provides full XMP export support. The plug-in supports everything from creating sidecar XMP files for referenced master images containing IPTC and EXIF metadata to embedding XMP data -- including ratings and keywords -- into exported images. XMP allows third-party programs such as Adobe Bridge to view metadata from Aperture in a standards-compliant format. Lightbox XMP is available as a free download, though the author encourages donations to further future plug-in development. Lightbox XMP requires Apple's Aperture software.
