Friends,

 

I'm trying to export images from Aperture with the caption.  However, when I export the image the caption is not exported with the image.  On the presets I direct Aperture to export metadata.  I've played with the export options in the export dialog but even when I check "caption" the program exports the word "untitled" for each caption.  What am I doing wrong?  Aperture and mountain lion are fully updated.

 

Thanks!

 

Steve

    Steve,

     

    This always works for me.  What apps are being used to check the exported file for this caption?

    When I add a caption to an image and export it and then look at the image in Preview the caption is there:

    How are you trying to export the image, what format? Where do you check 'caption'? Not sure I'm aware of a setting like that in Aperture. What application are you using to see if the caption is there once the image is exported?

     

    BTW what version of the OS and Aperture are you running?

    The 'image009' is the file name of the exported image file.

     

    Aperture does not have the built in capability to have the caption used as the filename on export. You would have to manually (or possibly via Applescript) set the version name to be the caption.

     

    regards

    Where are tyou specifying Caption as the filename? I have never done that and don;t see where you're setting it.

    Just to make sure we're on the same page what OS and Aperture versions are you running?

    My eyes are getting old but I don;t see caption in there anywhere. Could you post a screen shot of yours?

    Looks like you asked this same question last year,January 8th to be exact, see How to export image with caption

     

    So is this a New Years thing or what?

    You disapeared from the thread last year, never said if any of the help you got was helpful. So how did you resolve this then?
