CopperExport and iPhoto 7

August 13th, 2007 · 6 Comments

A few people have let me know that CopperExport does not work with iPhoto 7. As soon as I can get my hands on iLife’08, I will work on fixing the problem (unfortunately, I don’t have definite plans of ordering it at the moment, so it may take a bit).

On a related note, Apple has announced an official SDK for iPhoto, so a major cleanup of CopperExport may be coming in the future.

    If you want, I could provide you with iphoto 7, or possibly you could download it from e.g., so you can start developement of copperexport early.. ;-)

    It’s not only the CopperExport that doens’t work, my whole iPhoto export doesn’t appear. I had to switch the plugin off, to get export to work.

    Just wanted to add support for getting the plug in to work with 7, I’ll even back it up with some $$ ;)

    Charles, Pete, thanks for the support. My main reason for not getting iLife’08 yet is in fact financial. I will not download an illegal copy, but I will use any donations toward my iLife fund :-) and as soon as I get it, I will start porting CopperExport to it.

    Robert-Jan, indeed, you have to disable the plugin for the Export function to work at all. I should have pointed to that blog entry myself (I had read it before my post).

    we are an Apple Reseller ( and would like to support your project because we think it’s one of the best ways to put web galleries online.
    If you send me your address we would send you a copy of iLife 08 so you could continue development of your cpg export plugin.

    Greetings, Sven

    Hi Sven,

    Thank you for your offer! I really appreciate the support. In the meantime, I have obtained my copy of iLife’08, and the plugin has been updated – I am working on putting the new release out at this moment.

    Thank you anyway! This type of expressions of support really make my day :-)
