iPhoto Scripts

iPhoto is nice. This repository contains AppleScripts that make it nicer.


Export Geoloc

Export Geoloc exports the location information stored inside iPhoto's database to the JPEG files themselves. It requires ExifTool. The path to the exiftool executable is configured at the top of the script.

You may need to modify your environment further, depending on how you installed ExifTool. Apparently at least with Fink you have to set the PERL5LIB environment variable to point to the correct location by modifying ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist.

Show Modified iPhoto Files

When using RAW files, iPhoto's Show File command shows the RAW file, not the JPEG. This script shows the JPEG.


There is no automatic installation method. These instructions apply to OS X 10.6.

  1. Download the scripts you want.
  2. Open them with AppleScript Editor.
  3. Select Save As….
  4. Select the Library/Scripts/Applications/iPhoto folder
  5. From the File Format choices pick Application.
  6. Click Save.

To enable the AppleScript menu on your computer, open AppleScript editor's Preferences and select Show Script menu in menu bar.
