12 October 2005

Extracts photos from iPhoto library.

Overview

iPhoto Extractor was born of the following anecdote:

"A friend had her iPhoto Library "disappear" on her one day, such that iPhoto showed no pictures, but the files were all still tucked away in the iPhoto library structure. We couldn't seem to rebuild the library without importing everything back into iPhoto and manually weeding through the "thumbnails" and "altered" files created by iPhoto.

"Thus iPhoto Extractor was born. It's function is simple, traverse the iPhoto library structure, copying the target files into a sorted destination. This way you can import all or some of your files back into iPhoto and not worry about thumbnails and other files you would have to manage manually.

"The download package has 2 files. An AppleScript droplet that you can run in any version of the Mac OS (9->10.2.x) and a "Pro" version that is a Mac OS X application that runs in Mac OS X 10.3.x or higher. Check out the READ ME for more information on which to use and why."

Works great - my wife was gonna kill me cause I lost the pics. NOW THEY ARE ALL BACK! Great work. I feel bad to ask this - Is there a way to recover the album data or do I have to manually sort again? I never labeled the 2900 pics. Thanks I recommend this utility highly

Hey there, I've updated iPhoto Extractor to 2.0b9 which brings Tiger compatibility. This version will still run fine in Panther. Until Macupdate updates with the new version - you can also visit my web site noted above and download from there. Sean

Trouble with Tiger Sean here. I've tested 2.0b8 with Tiger and there is an issue with adding folders to the list. It will throw up an error dialog because it doesn't seem to like the way I'm checking the existance of the folder selected. The non-Pro AppleScript still functions (it doesn't create a list of folders to extract from) - so if you are running Tiger and need this script, please use the non-Pro version until I tame this issue. Thanks for your patience. Sean

This is a question: does this work with iPhoto 5? Hmm, I'll just try it out and see. However, here is a suggestion for the developer: if possible, can you implement a feature that allows for the extraction of the originals (as opposed to what I see in the library--some being iphoto edited) only?
