iPhoto2Gmail Version 0.7.1 Released

This version is a bug-fix release addressing an incompatibility that prevented some iPhoto 6 and '08 users from being able to export.
This is the recommended version for all users. Apologies to those v 0.7 users that were bitten by that bug!

Update
As of 11:11pm CST Sept 20, 2007, I have updated the 0.7.1 installer. Some file permissions were not set properly, and blocked access to non-administrator accounts. Thanks to everyone that helped me solve this issue.

I installed the latest version on my MacBook Pro.
I have iPhoto V6. Its as if the app isn't there.
I tried rebooting to see if that would change anything.
Nada. Any ideas?

Nancy, did any previous versions work?
Usually this type of problem occurs when iPhoto is not located on the same hardrive/partition that you boot from. For more troubleshooting, shoot me an email and I can give you some tips.

The same problem as Nancy. It does not let export in my macbook neither iMac G5 (iPhoto ver. 6). IPhoto is in the same hardrive I'm booting from. How can I get rid of the whole plugin?

jils said...

@timo: try the uninstaller. If that fails, you need to remove it manually by deleting the iPhoto2Gmail.iPhotoExporter folder from the iPhoto.app/Contents/PlugIns/ folder.

Same problem here. UNinstalled old version manually. Then reinstalled new version with installer.

iPhoto doesn't list it as an option under Export.

MacBook running latest version of iLife and Tiger.

Thanks!

Hi Jils,

Thank you so much for inventing this. I have been waiting so long to be able to send picts through gmail. Although it is a bit slow, I am still enjoying it very much
Thanks!!!!!

I'm having some major problems! My contact list is not being updated--and so I can't send--even manually typing in the addresses I want to send photos to! Have just updated to v 0.7.1, and same problem. Any solutions?

Kathryn said...

Tried again, after posting, still not getting gmail address book to open. The only "address" that shows up is "... Even manually typing the address I want to send to doesn't make it "go".

Would love any help you can offer.

I am on a MacBook, still on Tiger 10.4.10, iPhoto v 6.0.6

kathryn,
This is due to the changes Google has made to Gmail. I have a patch available for download that should take care of the problems.

The blog format of this site sometimes makes it hard for folks to realize that there are new posts. You can go to http://iphoto2gmail.notoptimal.net and it will show the latest posts.

This is the link to the post about the patches.

Yes!! !! !!
your patch did it, even after the update did not.

Thankyou, finally able to send the photos to my Mother for her Xmas letter!

Appreciate the help--will be sending some money shortly!
