Oakland, California – Much has changed within OS X since PhotoUpLink was first released in 2006, and the introduction of new security features brought even more changes to the Aperture and iPhoto plugin architectures. PhotoUpLink is being rewritten to account for these changes, and version 1.8.1 of PhotoUpLink for iPhoto and Aperture is the first released build of the new code base. Prior releases of PhotoUpLink on the Mac have been discontinued and are no longer available for download.
PhotoUpLink for iPhoto 1.8.1 is a universal 32/64-bit Intel build for iPhoto ’11 version 9.4.3 and requires Mac OS X 10.6.3 or newer. PhotoUpLink has been tested to work with the OS X Mavericks GM and the new iPhoto ’11 version 9.4.7 running in 64-bit mode. To use PhotoUpLink in iPhoto, select an album or a group of items, then go to the File menu and choose the Export menu item. PhotoUpLink will be displayed in the Export panel. PhotoUpLink for iPhoto supports image and video uploading.
PhotoUpLink for Aperture 1.8.1 is a 64-bit Intel build for Aperture 3.4.5 and requires Mac OS X v10.7.5 or newer. PhotoUpLink for Aperture has also been tested to work with Aperture 3.4.5 when running on OS X Mavericks. PhotoUpLink for Aperture supports exporting of image versions or originals. To use PhotoUpLink for Aperture, first select a group of images, then go to the File menu and highlight the Export sub menu item. Select PhotoUpLink for Aperture in the sub menu that appears.
The FTP function of PhotoUpLink runs in a separate process from the host application and can be terminated at any time, preventing any FTP server or connection issues from freezing the main application. PhotoUpLink’s responsive modal dialog box provides accurate feedback of the upload process, displaying per file and total upload progress information.
