Aperture – iPhoto synchroniser

Aperture is great for organising photos and making global adjustments (exposure, white balance, contrast etc) but misses some browsing and sharing lovelies of iPhoto; in particular Places, Faces and Facebook sharing.

Creating a library shared between the two applications is quite painful. I’m going to write my first mac application, and it’s going to help me maintain a view of my aperture library in iPhoto.

Much of the sync can be done in AppleScript. I’m going to start with a concept script that cycles through the selected photos in Aperture and identifies them in iPhoto.

Once I have the concept AppleScript working, I’d like to use this as an opportunity to learn how to write ‘real’ Mac software.
