Code Replacement Now Possible in Aperture and Lightroom
Thomas Boyd, Photographer
Portland | OR | USA | Posted: 6:21 PM on 11.16.10
->> I've been working with code replacement guru Jason Watson at codereplacements.com to make his automated roster generation compatible with an app called Typinator. He has done that. He also offered a ten percent discount to any subscription on his site through Dec., 2010.

If you use Lightroom or Aperture or any other app to caption your photos Typinator will allow you to do that. If you sometimes use Photo Mechanic and other times use something else, it will even work with Photo Mechanic. It will work with any app that has a text input feature.

Here's a link to some posts I put up at Mac Create today about it:

Enjoy!

->> TextExpander provides similar functionality to Typinator, but imports PhotoMechanic code replacement templates natively, no modification is necessary. In fact, it supports almost any format you can think of EXCEPT Typinator because those templates are saved in a non-open format.

I've been using TextExpander for a couple years now, no issues. It helps me save time in all applications. It's another option for those of you who own neither...

->> For those that are on a PC, I am also working on an output (should be ready in the next couple of days) to work with AutoHotKey (http://www.autohotkey.com/) which is a free program that does similar text expansion on any Windows-based programs. I'll post here once it's ready.

->> Chris: Thanks for this. That looks like an equally great app. I especially like the statistics feature that tells you how much time you saved using it.

->> Used this at the Oregon State v USC game last night. Worked great, used aperture for everything, adjusting and adding captions before the image was even copied if the CF card, then just used PM to FTP.

->> I used codereplacements.com and Typinator last Thurs. on deadline for the first time during the Trail Blazers/Nuggets game. It worked perfectly and I was able to get 10 photos sent at halftime, which is probably the most I've ever been able to caption, adjust and send with any software.

I'm really pleased with the way it worked.

->> For those that use an image editing program other than Photo Mechanic to edit/caption your images:

In addition to MacOS-based code replacement support through Typinator as Thomas describes (see the link for his blog, above, to learn how), I'm also providing code replacement services for any PC-based application with the assistance of a free program called AutoHotKey (
http://www.autohotkey.com).

You can now use the photo editing software of your choice (i.e. Photoshop, Lightroom, Getty's custom editing software, etc., etc.) to caption your images using my code replacements service. Here's how it works:

1) Install AutoHotKey on to your Windows-based PC (the basic version works fine:
http://www.autohotkey.com/download/AutoHotkeyInstall.exe)

2) Select AutoHotKey instead of Photo Mechanic or Typinator (first option) on
http://www.codereplacements.com

3) Generate your rosters and download the file. Simply opening this file (double clicking the file or have your browser auto-open upon download) will activate AutoHotKey and load the codes. Note: this is different than the Photo Mechanic and Typinator solutions which require you to manually load the roster files into the program -- this is a simple double click and you codes are ready to expand.

4) Type your codes (no deliminator needed) as desired into any text input screen. Note: this is also different than the Photo Mechanic and Typinator solutions I provide where it is a good idea to have a deliminator -- AHK codes are activated by typing the code and then a space and/or return.

5) Once done, in your system tray (in the bottom right hand corner of your Windows based PC) you'll see a green "H" that represents the AutoHotKey software. Right click on this to turn off the script / exit when you are done. You can always reload the codes by double clicking on the file you just generated.

If anyone has any questions on how this or any other part of the service works, feel free to contact me.

Also as a reminder from a previous thread, if you are a SS member, I am offer a 15% discount off a 1 year or 3 year subscription. Just e-mail me (jason@jasonowatson.com) with your SS member page url and I'll send you the coupon code. There's a 10% coupon code for non-SS members good through 12/31/10 available via Thomas' blog post.

Cheers,
Jason
