Apple Releases Aperture 2.1 SDK

You can use the Aperture 2.1 SDK to create two different kinds of Aperture plug-ins: Export plug-ins and Edit plug-ins.

Export plug-ins let you control the entire Aperture export process. With an Export plug-in you can:
■ Manage the visibility of the Aperture controls in the export window, such as Version or Master export, Export Presets, and File Naming Policy.
■ Display a custom user interface within the Aperture export window.
■ Provide users with custom export presets.
■ Track the type of image (Master or Version) being exported.
