Hi Vitaliy,

Sounds cool

Can't test it myself since I don't have a mac...but i'm sure the mac users will love it.

Thanks,

David

Hmm..here's a problem:
~/Library/Application Support/Aperture/Plug-Ins/Export

There is no folder after you get in the Aperture folder itself. Do I need to create those?

Hi Pronvit,

Installed, did file>export, logged in, selected gallery, chose 1024 option, clicked export, and it made like it worked fine, but the file didn't land in my gallery, nor did I see an upload log exception.

Am I doing something wrong ? :)

in next version tomorrow there will be (together with new album creating feature and some others) diagnostic messages so it will be easier to find problem

anyone else tried it with success/problems?

I uploaded new version to http://ww2d.org/smugexport
Now you can create new albums right in exporter. Also it now prints some diagnostic messages to console (use Console.app to view them if something doesn't work).

I uploaded about 30 photos that were TIF's, converted to jpeg 1024. All went very smooth. No problems at all. Very nice piece of work and will be very helpful. Thanks for the effort and time that it took to do this.

Oh awesome!!!
Thanks so much pronvit! And thanks for pointing me toward this thread. I'd missed it. I'll be donating soon.

This makes things so much easier for me! I was thinking I was gonna have to write one myself, but I don't really know how.

I'll comment on bugs/feature ideas/whatever after I use it a bit more... uploading the first batch now.

I'm glad you like it.

btw, want to warn that it will fail silently if connection is poor and it can't upload image, not good at all, so check that images really appeared in gallery. I'll handle this situation properly in next version

This is an awesome start! Even this simple functionality of creating an album and uploading to it is already saving me lots of time.

If I were allowed to have a features wishlist as the plugin continues to be developed my top item would be the ability to (inside Aperture) view thumbnails of the photos that are in each album and be able to select and REPLACE a photo on smugmug with a photo from my Aperture library. Many times I do a shoot and get all my photos uploaded and later go back and make "better edits".

Thanks so much for working on this plugin.

Hi pronvit,

There isn't currently an API method for this, it's been requested before, i'll make sure it's on the list.

Cheers,

David

I’m glad to announce availability of new version of my SmugMug export plugin for Aperture.

Update is highly recommended, changes:

* Better error handlng - message will be displayed if operation fails, Skip/Retry/Cancel options will be given if image upload fails
* Option to open gallery in browser when upload complete
* Several code fixes, it should be more stable now, tried to upload several hundred images without any problems (however it’s aways more safe not to try to upload two thousand images at once:) )

Homepage and download: http://ww2d.org/smugexport

PS. photo replacing will be implemented as soon as there will be smugmug api for this

Some problems...
This has been working pretty well for me, but a couple gotchas...

First, today it stopped working with 1 account. It says "Can't get list of albums". I tried it with my other account and it worked fine, so maybe it poops out if there are more than a certain # of albums? I dunno. The one that won't work is my pro account, though, with more albums. Not tons, though. 20-something maybe?

Also, there is no easy way to switch between multiple accounts if you're like me and have 2. I have a personal and a business, and it'd be awesome if I could choose them from the list and not have to type in my email/password every time.

Other than that, doing great!!!

I answered your email about your problem.

And I'll think about how to make nice user interface for multiple accounts feature, thank you for idea.

One Small Problem
I love the SmugMug exporter, but there is one small problem. When I select a gallery, it uploads to the gallery immediately above it in the list. I've tried this several times, and it's the same each time. Do I have a bum version, or is this a known problem? I downloaded and installed 1.0 today.

BTW, I never would have found my photos if it weren't for the "open gallery automatically" feature. Thanks for that!!

Thanks for taking the time to follow up. I deleted, downloaded, and re-installed today and got the same problem. Weird - but at least it's consistent so I can still take advantage of it. Everything else works perfectly.
