One of the next steps in bringing Newton back from the dead is to move the development environment away from Classic and onto Mac OS X. Thanks to the efforts of Paul Guyot and Makoto Nukui, we have the beginnings of a native Mac OS X NTK. In my (limited) spare time, I think I’ll … Continue reading NTK on Mac OS X
Version 0.9.2 of Annoture has been posted onto my website. There’s almost always a simpler solution to the problem. Hours after I released Annoture 0.9.1 to the world, I discovered an easier way to locate the current Aperture Library. I didn’t realize how many people would place their Aperture Library in a location somewhere other … Continue reading Annoture 0.9.2
I squashed a bug today in Annoture. When selecting another location for the Aperture Library, Annoture did not correctly set the preference. As a result, when you copy annotations from iView to Aperture, no matches could be found. Version 0.9.1 of Annoture has been posted onto my website. I have my Aperture Library on my … Continue reading Annoture 0.9.1
iView Keywords to Aperture works on both iView MediaPro 2.6.4 and 3.0.1. The script will add new or append to existing keyword groups in Aperture’s Keyword HUD. Visit the iView Keywords to Aperture web page.
Introducing Annoture, a metadata bridging solution for Aperture and iView MediaPro! With Annoture, youâ€™re just a click away from sharing metadata between these two popular image management and cataloguing applications. Spend more time working with your decisive moments than worrying about double-entry and incomplete metadata! Annoture lets you transfer annotations from iView MediaPro catalogs to … Continue reading Annoture Release
In honor of Paperture, I’ve changed the name of the program to Annoture. Earlier, I discovered Apple was handling exporting IPTC information in an old manner. This unfortunately took out a couple of hours to figure out, time which I could have spent working on other parts of the application. For a program that does … Continue reading Annoture Progress
Aperture’s metadata exporting routines need a little more work. Aperture seems to flatten into a single string IPTC fields that can hold multiple values such as Keywords, Supplemental Categories, and Contacts â€” Keywords, Categories and People in iView terms â€” during import of JPEGs and TIFFs. If and when they ever read the annotation fields … Continue reading Flattened ITPC Fields by Aperture
In my previous post, I wrote that there was no way in AppleScript to get the original filename of a version. Because Aperture uses SQLite to store information about the Library, however, there is a way to access this information! There are a number of tables in the Library database, which is normally located at … Continue reading Aperture and SQLite
Update June 2, 2005: The beta list is now closed. I’m looking for a few people to test out a new piece of software that I’ve written. Requirements for the beta test are that you (1) are running Tiger, (2) are a regular user of Apple Mail, (3) make heavy use of mailbox folders, and … Continue reading Beta Testers Needed!
Last week at COBA, I presented on my annotated image library. After one and a half years, I have reached the end of arduous task of annotating 77,500 images. I’ll write about what I covered in the presentation in a future entry; right now, I want to talk about a recent project, Annotation Copier. One … Continue reading Annotation Copier
