I am an administrator for my company's photography page on Facebook. I am wondering if anyone has found a way to post to Facebook albums and the company's wall page from within Aperture?
Thanks.

Joseph,

Do you know if/when they’ll fix the mapping of the Aperture “Caption” field to the Facebook caption? Right now I have to copy my image caption to the “Version Title” field in Aperture in order for the pictures captions to show in Facebook. Alternatively, is there any easier way to copy the Captions to the Version field for a series of images?

Parik,

As much as I know about Aperture, unfortunately I’m not privy to any future release dates, or what they may or may not fix. (And even if I did, I couldn’t tell ya anyway!)

I’m not sure why it works the way it does, but I don’t believe that there are two fields in Facebook, are there? You only get one—which for people uploading random un-captioned photos, they would probably want the filename there.

There’s no easy way to copy or swap fields, unfortunately. I’ve gone through them by hand myself in the past, just getting into a rhythm of copy, tab, paste, tab, command-right-arrow; repeat.

Yoni,

There’s a built-in Facebook tool in Aperture. Is that not providing what you need? Just select photo(s) and click the Facebook button in the toolbar…

The recent upgrade to Aperture 3.1 enhanced the Facebook integration dramatically, Facebook uploading has been in Aperture since 3.0

Yes- I can post to Facebook on my personal account from Aperture just fine. I want to be able to post to my Facebook page for my work account as well but cant seem to figure out how to get there.

Yoni,

Go into the preferences, and you can add multiple accounts there.

If you’re talking about adding photos to a “Page” (used to be called “fan pages”), you can’t do that directly through Aperture. You’d need to add an album from Aperture, then link to it from the “Page”.
