PRESS RELEASE: PhotoUpLink Export Plug-In for Apple Aperture Released
OAKLAND and BERKELEY, Calif. -- Developer Mark Morris has announced that PhotoUpLink is available for Aperture 1.5 and can be downloaded and purchased from http://www.photouplink.com.
PhotoUpLink for Aperture contains all the features of the iPhoto plugin with some enhancements. The ODBC export feature now allows users to append to existing database tables as well as create new tables in any ODBC data source that supports binary large objects, including MySQL, Oracle, IBM DB 2 or Microsoft SQL Server. PhotoUpLink for Aperture fully supports all resize, file format and renaming options of Aperture and combines them with the unique feature set of PhotoUpLink for ultimate flexibility. A couple of clicks and a group of images can be added to a ZIP archive as thumbnails for example.
Images can be processed by Aperture export and then with PhotoUpLink sent to a secure FTP server, a FileMaker database or inserted into a Microsoft PowerPoint or Word document as well as being sent to any ODBC data source. When exporting to an ODBC database, complete property lists of IPTC, Exif and custom metadata are included in the database in XML format for easy querying.
"This really opens up many possibilities for monetizing and distributing photographic assets," said PhotoUpLink creator and author Mark Morris. "All the work of cataloging and keywords can now be amortized across multiple delivery platforms and sent to customer facing web applications with ease and flexibility." ODBC data features were developed with MySQL Server and the high performance, stable and easy to install ODBC drivers from Actual Technologies.
PhotoUpLink streamlines the process of photograph distribution from Aperture with innovative email attachments that automatically import these files into a local iPhoto album or Windows My Pictures folder after an FTP upload. Photos and videos are not limited by size restrictions or email server limits, as the PhotoUpLink-generated email triggers the downloads directly from the designated FTP site.
