A simple applescript which will post image thumbnails from Aperture right into Evernote.

Requires Aperture 3 (not working with previous versions of Aperture)

How it works:

  1. 1)select images inside Aperture

  2. 2)run the script

It will first ask (through dialogs) for a note title and a text line. It will create a new Evernote note containing, for each image:

  1. a)the thumbnail of the image

  2. b)image information like: image name, image_ID, Project name, date, focal length, aperture, exposure time, ISO, lens model

NOTE: the image_ID is a unique alphanumeric code identifying the image within Aperture. Using this ID it is easy to retrieve the image inside Aperture’s database
