Aperture Automator Actions

Aperture is in users hands now, and the reviews are a bit mixed, to put it mildly. But hey, it wouldn’t be the first time a 1.0 didn’t live up to the hype. Aperture comes preloaded with a set of Automator actions: Retrieve Item References, Store Item References, Assign Keywords to Images, Export Images, Set Image Rating, Set IPTC Tags, Choose Albums, Choose Projects and Import Photos. Assuming you aren’t obsessing over the quality of Aperture’s raw conversion, these actions should be handy in enhancing your imaging workflow.



  1. hello,

    Where is the ‘Set IPTC Rating’ action? I only see ‘Set Image Rating’. I would love an action to set an IPTC field for rating based on the Aperture rating. Any ideas?

  2. Sorry, that was a typo! Fixed. What you might want to try is pulling the rating, and applying it to a keyword field.
