Aperture’s Web Gallery feature is very nice, and extremely functional. That said, it’s hard not to look a little enviously at the cool Flash-based galleries that can be exported from Lightroom. However, while Aperture may lack built-in Flash support, it does have an export plug-in architecture, which means third parties can easily build new ways to export data from Aperture. Programmer Ken Welch did just that and came up with a very cool plug-in for outputting a series of images as a Flash-based web gallery.
The Flash Album Exporter includes a large array of customizable parameters and a number of different output options, making it simple to go from an Aperture selection to a finished Flash gallery, ready for upload, in just one or two clicks.
If you’ve been looking for a…um…”flashier” way to display your images on-line, it’s worth spending a little time with the Flash Album Exporter.
