New aperture plugins
Two new plugins that extend the functionality of Apple's Aperture digtial photography workflow tool have been released. Publish for Approval allows customers to approve images remotely over the internet. It allows creators t ou web-publish selected images, then customers to automatically display their choices within Aperture. The tool uses the built-in web sharing abilities of Mac OS X, and the power of AppleScript, to create and display webpages, containing your images, to the client. On the webpage, the client selects the images they approve, and clicks a button to submit their choices to the creator. Immediately, their selections are displayed in a Smart Album in the creator's Aperture project.
GLOBALedit Export is a plug-in to securely upload digital photography directly from Aperture to GLOBALedit. The customized export interface allows clients to create new jobs, update existing collections and transfer photography from the desktop into the networked enterprise workflow. Once uploaded to GLOBALedit, image collections are globally available for editing, talent approval, image distribution, contact sheet creation, image markups and retouching notes. The tool is freeware.
