What is apHUB?

apHUB is a suite of Applescripts, that transform Aperture into your central hub for storing your images and sending their master (RAW or JPEG) with a single keystroke to other image editors (currently Capture One, DxO OpticsPro in development) and getting them back with full behind-the-scenes handling of the external settings and mask files. Thus the whole process is non-destructive.
With the combination of apHUB, Aperture and Capture One and/or DxO OpticsPro you have an integrated Photo management and editing suite that is far superior to any currently existing single Photo management application!

  • Not sure we talk about the same thing. In a normal workflow apHUB doesn't read or write any xmp sidecar files. And frankly I don't see much sense in exchanging metadata via xmp sidecar files in a typical apHUB roundtrip. I don't do rating, flagging…
  • Hi Armand, a few more questions to find the reason for your problems. Please make sure you have selected the images you want to send back to Aperture before you press the shortcut to run one of the DxO -> Aperture scripts. Does it work, if you…
  • Hi Abbot, when you start C1 directly or via a double-click on a session or database file, no apHUB script gets triggered, which could check, what was last used with C1. Same is true, when you quit C1. Two other solutions that come to my mind: 1.)…
  • Thank you for your post. I'll add your suggestion to the Read Me file. Please notice, that the apHUB.cosessiondb gets installed in the ~/Pictures/apHUB/Capture One folder, not the ~/Pictures/Capture One folder.  I tried to put everything related to…
  • Hi Armand, thank you for this report. I think it has something to do with the keyboard shortcut for "export to disc" in your DxO installation. What language do you use? Does it show cmd + K as in the screenshot above? Btw. you can use apHUB sa…
  • No there is no sound. My English is no so good, that I wanted to comment the video, and playing any background music wouldn't help much. Peter
  • ~/Library is the (hidden) Library folder in your home folder. And yes, you shall create all missing subfolders there. According to apHUB it uses nothing inside Application Support.
