With TwitExport, Blue Crowbar Software has renamed and combined the iPhoto2Twitter and Aperture2Twitter export plug-ins, which let you tweet directly from within iPhoto and Aperture, including a selected photo as a link to TwitPic or Mobypicture. (For details, see “iPhoto2Twitter Simplifies Tweeting Photos,” 9 June 2009.) The name change came about with the need to meet Twitter naming requirements when switching to Twitter’s OAuth authentication method a few months ago; Blue Crowbar also took the opportunity to refine the user interface a bit. TwitExport can also now install in either iPhoto (where it also supports sharing movies to Mobypicture) or Aperture. TwitExport works with iPhoto ’08 and ’09, along with the just-released iPhoto ’11—with Aperture, TwitExport requires either version 2.1.4 or 3.0.3 and later. ($5.90 new, free upgrade, 410 KB)
