Lightroom to iPhoto export update 1.2

When Adobe Lightroom first came out I wrote a quick Lightroom to iPhoto photo exporter. The plug-in copies the selected photos from your Lightroom library to iPhoto. This weekend the plug-in got a well-needed update for Lightroom 3 and Snow Leopard.

The new version is tested on Adobe Lightroom 3.x and iPhoto 9.x (the one bundled in iLife ‘11).

What has been changed?

Event names

Ever since iPhoto added Events I would like to support these in the plug-in as well. Today the iPhoto API does not offer a way to organize Events. It's high on the wishlist but depends on when and if Apple will expose Events in their iPhoto AppleScript API.

Source code

As always the code for the plug-in is open source and freely available. Feel free to improve it when you know some Lua or AppleScript.
