Version 1.4.0

Adds support for macOS Mojave 10.14.x

Version 1.3.5

Adds new feature that prevents images in projects from being exported to their project folder if it is going to be exported to at least one folder representing an album or smart album. Configuration is in advanced options Keywording/Other tab. This can be useful for people who use albums as their major organizational entity and only use projects as a dumping ground for their images. This feature disabled by default. Also includes performance and stability improvements.

Version 1.3.3

Bug Fixes.

Version 1.3.2

The keywords that AE adds to images can now be selectively controlled. The filename sanitization character lists are now customizable. Performance improvements and more.


Fix for UI not updating during an export.

Version 1.3.1

AE now responds to the "AE Ignore" keyword. Images with this keyword applied will not be exported. Bug fixes.

Version 1.3.0

Bug fixes. TIFF originals now have their Aperture metadata embedded into the image file rather than a XMP sidecar (which Lr wasn't reading anyway).


Bug fixes.

Version 1.2.6

Bug fixes. Keywords generated for Faces, Albums, and Custom Tags now use the | character instead of the -. This allows Lr to automatically build a keyword heirarchy on import.

Version 1.2.5

Fixes generation of JPEGs and/or TIFFs with adjustments baked-in for certain language translations in Aperture.

Version 1.2.4

Adds WithAdjustments to the filename for TIFFs created with adjustments baked-in.

Version 1.2.3

√ Bug fix related to RAW+JPEG pairs in Aperture for which the JPEG is elected to be the original.

Version 1.2.2

Make sure movies don't get converted to JPEG or TIFF. Work around for jpeg originals that are missing location data added in Aperture. When a export has been complete make resume mode should be made available.


New UI that will hopefully make some features more discoverable. Many other improvements including: √ Option to ignore the "No Adjustments" keyword √ additional checkpoints for Aperture crash detection. √ Writes a txt file for each offline image containing it's metadata √ Hide the creation and processing of temporary files (like TIFFs and JPEGs rotation) in a temp folder. √ adds the ability to suppress RAW exports when AE has an “Adjusted Image” (JPEG or TIFF) to generate. √ Set the ETA count to something like ??-??-?? when AE detects that Aperture has crashed and stop countdown. √ ETA should flash or something when countdown hits 0 but AE and Aperture are still working. √ the ETA is all wrong when using “Suppress original export…” option. √ calculates ETA more often √ limits batch processing of JPEGs to say 10 TIFFs in tmp folder at a time. √ Names folders for albums with the prefix "Album" √ validate that we have access to user preference saved export directory when sandboxed. Otherwise reset it. √ detects if resume mode should be made available.

Version 1.1.7

New Advanced Feature: Option to create XMP sidecar files for JPEG originals. This is useful for those migrating to something other than Adobe Lightroom (which does not read sidecar files for JPEGs). This option also results in quicker exports.

Version 1.1.6

Updated for OS X 10.10

Version 1.1.5

New features and bug fixes. Improves the quality of generated JPEGs with adjustments. Create folders for albums now also exports the top level albums and folders. Advanced option to create 16 bit TIFFs with adjustments.

Version 1.1.4

Bug fixes wrt Resume Mode and situation where Album/Project/Folder names containing the "." character would not be exported.

Version 1.1.3

New Features: √ Aperture Faces converted to keywords √ Resume previously cancelled exports Minor bug fixes.

Version 1.0.4

Sanitize filename feature. AE now replaces characters in exported filenames which are forbidden in Lightroom imports. AE now reads the original capture orientation for JPEG images and tags images with orientations that are not landscape. This can be disabled in advanced preferences. Renamed the default naming profile to more accurately describe its behaviour.

Version 1.0.3

Fixes AE bug where TIFFs with adjustments were not created when AE is used with certain language translations of Aperture. Prevents AE from terminating when an export is in progress. Fixes a bug in ETA display.

Version 1.0.2

Includes all updates from the beta up to and including v.0.5.4. Also contains minor bug fix in the display of eta.

Version 1.0.1

This is the first available version from the mac app store. It includes all updates from the beta up to v.0.5.3

Version 0.5.4 RC 5

Adds a new advanced option: By default AE saves disk space and time by exporting a single original file even where there are multiple versions derived from it in a single folder. However the metadata picked for the original is from a random version.

By selecting this new option, a separate original file will be created for each version.

Version RC 4

A minor update to improve AE protection against Aperture crashes.

Version 0.5.3 RC 4

Release Candidate 4. Warning when invalid license file detected. Try to detect if Aperture crashed and wait until it’s available again during an export. Fixes how export profile is determined to handle languages other than english. Continue with export of originals even when TIFFs/JPEGs with baked-in adjustments cannot be created.

Version 0.5.2 RC 3

Release Candidate 3. Adds support for OS X 10.7 (Lion) and above and corrects an issue where UI dialogs were missing from OS X 10.8.

Version 0.5.1 RC 2

Version 0.5 RC 1

Release Candidate 1. Includes performance improvements, minor bug fixes, link to the support page in the help menu, a warning when a library change is detected, updated credits, and support for license files.

Version 0.4.1

Fixes the way images in albums are tagged. Bug fix when image filename couldn’t be determined. Updated album and custom tag keyword format.

Version 0.4

Beta 4. Use notification center at end of export. Bug fix when creating jpeg. AE added keywords all have a parent called AE. Keywords added to images that are in albums if export albums as folder not selected. Bug fix for offline files. Tag any images that are not pick of stack. Custom metadata converted to keywords. jpeg images are stored with embedded metadata because Lightroom doesn’t import sidecar data for jpegs.
