Export iPhoto to Folders is Getting Better All the Time

Mark Nottingham is on a tear. Last week he sent me a pull request for a bunch more changes he made to the exportiphoto app that lets you export iPhoto events or albums to folders.

The most notable changes:

  • It uses less memory. This matters if your iPhoto library is huge, because you will no longer overwhelm your Mac’s memory when exporting the photos to folders.┬áIt now uses a SAX parser so it no longer has to load the entire iPhoto XML file into memory.
  • It shows better progress than before, telling you how many events/albums it has processed so far and how many there are total.
  • If you want, it can copy photo metadata (image name, description, keywords, faces, and rating) into the exported photos.
