Who Uses Applescript with Aperture and Why?

From time to time, I come see Applescript mentioned by Aperture Users. The Apple Support website devotes a few paragraphs.
For an amateur with lots of time. how would Applescript make my experience with Aperture any better? It automates what?

There's also an application that will give you lots of statistics on your Aperture library (lenses used, etc):

I'm pretty sure it uses AppleScript to get the data.

  • HT5914 Using AppleScript with Accessibility and Security features in Mavericks

    I have an AppleScript that works fine when run from the AppleScript Editor and has an errorr when run as an App.  This problem is described by the following knowledgebase article: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5914   However, in my case the first error appears, but the second dialog does not.  I've tried Signing the AppleScript, but the error remains.  Any suggestions?

    A regular AppleScript application saves its properties to the script in the application bundle, which is seen as a new (different) application.  If your script doesn't need to keep its properties (e.g. to save some current value for the next run), you can try making the script read only, then add the application to the Privacy list.

  • I ordered my Macbook Air with Aperture two years ago. I now have an iMac - can I use that with Aperture in any way?

    I ordered my Macbook Air with Aperture two years ago. I now have an iMac - can I use that with Aperture in any way? I appreciate that it is a different computer but I am now the end user of both devices and I was just wondering if it was possible.
    Thanks,

    The answer would be in your software license agreement for Aperture. However if you cannot locate it you can ask in the Aperture forum, the link for that is:
    https://discussions.apple.com/community/professional_applications/aperture
    However I believe you can have Aperture installed on two machines however only one may be using it at a time.
    On the new iMac launch the Mac App Store - Purchased - look for Aperture and download to your new machine.

  • What is the condition for using 'for all entries' and  why?

    what is the condition for using 'for all entries' and  why? can any body tell the reason for this ? its a big favour of me .
    regards,
    ravi.

    hi,
    for all entries is used to join two or more tables.
    It is same as join but performance wise for all entries is more effective.
    You can only use FOR ALL ENTRIES IN ...WHERE ...in a SELECT statement.
    SELECT ... FOR ALL ENTRIES IN itab WHERE cond returns the union of the solution sets of all SELECT
    statements that would result if you wrote a separate statement for each line of the internal table replacing the symbol
    itab-f with the corresponding value of component f in the WHERE condition.Duplicates are discarded from the result
    set. If the internal table itab does not contain any entries, the system treats the statement as though there were
    no WHERE cond condition, and selects all records (in the current client).
    for example:
    SELECT * FROM sflight INTO wa_sflight
    FOR ALL ENTRIES IN ftab
    WHERE CARRID = ftab-carrid AND
    CONNID = ftab-connid AND
    fldate = '20010228'.
    this condition, return all entries of the sflight
    hen using FOR ALL ENTRIES the number of matching records is restricted to the number of records in the internal table. If the number of records in the database tables is too large then join would cause overheads in performance. Additionally a JOIN bypasses the table buffering.
    So for all entries is used for filtering out the data from the two tables based on the entries in them.
    Advantages:
    1) For all entries avoids inner join & so the performance increases.
    2) For specified values in 1 itab, if you to fetch values from other table you can use it.
    3) Use of select stmt in loop is gets avoided, as u can use read statement on the the new itab.

  • I want to use applescript with keynote

    I recently purchased Keynote specifically because there is an applescript that purports to run a Keynote presentation and use text to speech to provide narration from the notes on each slide.  I found the script and some supporting materials on http://www.macosxautomation.com/applescript/selfpreso/index.html.  However, this was produced a few years ago and a few versions of applescript and Keynote ago.  So, I need to accomplish the same feat with the current versions of these products.
    But I'm having a great deal of difficulty finding references that tell me much about using applescript with Keynote.
    Can anyone help me out with this?

  • Which method of BDC is used in which condition and Why?

    Hi,
    I want to know In which conditions(or in which type of data) Call Transaction or Batch Input Session is used for Data Migration and why?
    Please help me out.
    Thanks and Regards,
    Gagan Mittal

    In both, you will be doing the same screen scraping. But the main difference is while Batch Input method keeps your sessions persistantly if an error occurs, whereas CALL TRANSACTION does not provide that mechanism automatically, you will have to code for it. In call transaction you calling a transaction in a loop depending on your input. But in a batch input session, you will combine your transactions into batches that can be processed at a later time or immediately. This way, when you are doing large volume loads, and you don't want to burden your system with all the transactions running, you can create batches that you can process later when the system is not over-burdened.
    But the advantage with CALL TRANSACTION is that you will know the success or failure and the reason for failure in your program itself and you can take a subsequent action based on that result. Since your Batch Input Session is creating a new task, there is no immediate feedback that you can use.
    Even with a call transaction, it is advisable to keep the BDC data in a session, if the CALL fails. That way you can revisit the transaction and make corrections.

  • Using url with username and password in URL class

    Hi,
    I'm writting an applet in which I use getAppletContext().showDocument with an URL.
    The problem is that I'm using URLs with username and password (http://user:[email protected]/page) and it isn't working because the browser is getting the URL http://user/page.
    Is this a bug in the URL class? Or in the showDocument method?
    Is there any way to make this work?
    Thanks for any help,

    I'm not sure whether this is supported behaviour. I've had this syntax fail to work in the Netscape address bar so I can't recommend it as an approach for authentication.
    If you want to authenticate the user before redirecting to the page, though, you could try creating a connection to another page on the same server and sending the authorization information then. Your browser may then be successfully authenticated.
    See http://www.javaworld.com/javatips/jw-javatip47.html for information on this.
    You might not need to read back the page from the server, just connect to it. Might work.

  • What to do with Aperture and iPhoto now?

    Now that I have Photos on my computer (OS X 10.10.3), can I uninstall/delete iPhoto and Aperture?
    I have no need for their functionality, since I will just use Photos (to replace iPhoto functions) and Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop for more advanced functions (including what I could do with Aperture).
    To clarify, I should say, is it safe to delete the two apps (iPhoto and Aperture) without affecting my photo library?

    I mean the apps. They don't take up 'minimal storage', instead aperture and iphoto apps take up around 2.5gb of space. I have a large SSD, but I would still like this space back.
    Make a bootable clone or another full backup of your SSD. You may not be able to ever reinstall iPhoto or Aperture otherwise, since they have been pulled from the App Store.
    If you should discover later, that the migration of your libraries has been faulty and you need to repeat it after repairing your libraries, you will be out of luck.
    Remember, it is is just one day after the first release of Photos as version 1.0.  There are very likely some bugs and I would not burn all bridges before the library has been thoroughly tested and you are very confident, that this release is working well on your Mac.
    My concern is that there is a shared library, and by deleting the two other apps, the ones the new one relies on, that the there might be some data loss. I wanted clarification. If an app is intended to replace two other apps, then why doesn't it replace it?
    The links between the library are hard links. As long as one of the libraries is still referencing one of the linked image files, that file will not be deleted from the disk.   Six Colors: The (hard) link between Photos and iPhoto

  • Another problem printing with Aperture and Epson 2400.

    Hi -
    I posted this on photo.net a while ago and nobody could seem to figure this out. I've searched through here with no help either. Here is the original photo.net post presenting my problem:
    I've been having a problem with my print workflow that started about 6 months ago but has only now gotten to the point that I really need to fix it.
    My equipment: Epson R2400 with stock inks, Aperture (latest version), iMac 2.33Ghz fully loaded and updated. I typically print on Epson Premium Luster or Enhanced Matte (I change K cartridge accordingly).
    Once upon a time, I had this workflow working perfectly. Prints were coming out exactly as I wanted them to, really better than expected. Then something changed, but it wasn't hardware. Somewhere along the line, I'm guessing in a software update, all my profiles changed. I typically do all my adjustments in Aperture, then in the print dialogs do the following:
    +In the 2400 settings, I turn color management off, and in the Print Settings, I select my paper, switch to Advanced, and typically choose Best Photo or whatever quality I'm needing.+
    +Then in the Aperture print settings I choose the ColorSync profile that matches the paper and quality I selected in the above Print Settings window, keep Black Point Compression checked, and I'm off. As I said - this has worked flawlessly up until recently.+
    The one thing I noticed that has changed is the available profiles in Aperture's ColorSync Profile pulldown menu. It used to only show paper profiles specific to each paper and quality, ie. "SPR2400 PremLuster BstPhoto.icc". Now, it shows not only those specific profiles, but also more generic paper profiles, such as "SPR2400 PremiumLuster", with no quality specification.
    The problem is this: When I now select the paper/quality-specific profile, as I used to do, the prints come out all washed-out and flat. It even shows this in the preview window. It's slightly better when I select these new generic paper profiles, but still not like what I had. This is true with both types of paper I use.
    I've attempted all the usual fixes, such as trashing all my profiles and re-loading new ones from Epson, re-installing Aperture and Epson software, and trashing prefs. Heck, I've reloaded all software that even remotely related to photography so many times, I can't even count any more. Nothing - just washed-out, dead-looking prints every time. And it all changed when I noticed those new generic profiles mentioned above.
    I did make one hardware change after I first started experiencing these problems. I went from a PPC Dual 2.8Ghz G5 to the iMac, but as I said, these problems first occurred on the G5 and continued with the new iMac.
    Any thoughts?

    Well, you could dump Aperture only to find that a 2.0 came along with OS 10.5 and fixed your problem, who knows.
    And I wouldn't call 6 months of not being able to print anything at all from Aperture jumping to conclusions. When I press Apple P in any other application I get prints that even unprofiled will come out better than Aperture. It's serious. Not just sorta bad. The ocean looks like sewage water- not just mildly unappealing- sewage.
    The solution for us, I suppose, is to buy calibrator hardware. I guess anyone who is professional should have one of these (and I do not) but I didn't buy Aperture to export for printing.
    As far as how to get Apple to acnowledge this... I don't know. It seems as though they are tired of hearing me talk about this. This is the first post of recent about this that hasn't been deleted by an admin. Who knows? I'm just tired of having to buy all the hardware and all the software that is all supposed to work together and then once you pay, you find that you're up the creek for prints.
    Don't get me started, or I'll start talking about how they don't support my camera make yet (or ever).... (Sigma). As you can imagine, I'm already IMPORTING 16 bit tiffs from my raw converter. I guess I need 3 copies of the same shot to do business in Aperture for now. I need some mylanta.
    Otherwise, love ya Apple!
    P.S. If you are looking for someone with the same hardware and problem as I, it's easy. Check out the print proofing podcast page on O'reilly "Inside Aperture". There's one there in the comments part (that I replied to). Others can be found on this forum.

    Thank you for solving these problem for me!

    Hello,
    Please note that the code snippet 2 in your post is different from the code snippet in the MSDN document. Also please read the comments of the MSDN code sample:
    This example prompts the user for a   yes or no response before saving any document.
    This code must be placed in a   class module, and an instance of the class must be correctly initialized to   see this example work; see
    Using Events with the Application Object for   directions on how to accomplish this.
    Public WithEvents appWord   as Word.Application
    Private Sub   appWord_DocumentBeforeSave _
     (ByVal Doc As Document, _
     SaveAsUI As Boolean, _
     Cancel As Boolean)
     Dim intResponse As Integer
     intResponse = MsgBox("Do you really   want to " _
     & "save the document?", _
     vbYesNo)
     If intResponse = vbNo Then Cancel = True
    End Sub
    So the problem in your code snippet 2 is that you didn't put it into a class module and initialize the class module. If you just put it into ThisDocument, you have to initialize the word application object.

    But it's funny when people type "definatly" and MS Office automatically replaces this with "defiantly" ^^. I often get e-mails from colleagues saying things like "We should defiantly do this" ... yes, we should definitely put all our defiance into this .

    Actually this particular mistake is made almost exclusively by native speakers (or quasi-native speakers, like people from Hong Kong or India who start learning English at 3 or so). I wondered for a long time how they could possibly confuse "have" and "of", until someone explained that they are not replacing "would have", "could have" etc. with "would of", "could of", but "would've", "could've". Additionally native speakers pronounce "of" approximately as "ev" (the o in "of" is reduced to a schwa if the "of" is not in a position where it is emphasized) ... which is exactly the same or very similar to the way the 've part of "would've", "could've" is pronounced. So for a native speaker this is almost as innocent a mistake as writing "you're" for "your" or "there" for "their".
    I hate this error very much. For non-native speakers something like "would of" is extremely hard to parse, because when reading this and pronouncing the words in our heads we do not reduce the "of" to "ev", we read it kind of like "off", and cannot associate this with 've or have.

    This statement is not correct. One can use "less" for both countable and uncountable nouns. The usage with uncountable nouns even predates the one with countable nouns (9th vs. 14th century). But there are guides that recommend against using "less" with countable nouns and some even claim this to be incorrect.
    What I hate very much is when people use "less" when they should use "little". Only non-native speakers do this, of course. But quite often and even in official documents . I find this really cringeworthy. "There is too less time to do this or that" for example. The opposite of much is little, not less! Little cannot only mean small.
    A funny mistake, also in an official document: "The information in this document is objective to change." instead of "... subject to change". I think the author must be too object-oriented .
