Are there any FlickrExport users out there? I have recently made the transition from FlickrExport for iPhoto to Aperture and can't seem the figure out how to get a title exported. The developer has told me it is a preference and to which field in Aperture metadata to use as the export field, but I can't find it at all. Anyone else using this combination? Thanks… Bob

I use it here. What I do is enter the Title keywords and caption in IPTC’s Content Section not Status where you have title. It also exports everything in Contact so be sure you don’t include your address etc… like I did and over share :)

FlickrExport developer Frasier Speirs is on Twitter if you’d like to contact him. Good guy.

Bob, Are you using FlickrExport (File, Export, FlickrExport) or the Aperture interface. When I use the Flickr interface button, I cannot add a title before export. But with FlickrExport, it’s an option. Also, to get my signature on the photo, I have to use FlickrExport. Jim

@James… I use FlickrExport to get my photos from Aperature to Flickr.
@Robert… I had never looked at the IPTC area. Must read up about that. Is the field you use the Headline field?

Bob, yes that’s exactly it. The headline is what populates the Title in FlickExport, Caption populates the description you want to put in, and Keywords fills in the tags. I’ve never used the subject code or Caption Writer.
