"Import from iPhoto to Aperture"


US
          

I recently uploaded some photos from my D300s (via a card reader) to iPhoto. I can't seem to Import them into Aperture. This is my first effort at Aperture PP and I am trying to walk before I run - learn one thing at a time. I click on the Import command but do not know how to link to iPhoto to get to the photos that reside there. Help, please.
Thanks from a newbie.
John

Hi John,
I see this post is fairly old and with no responses. I'm not sure I can help as I have no experience with Aperture. I do know however that finding photos once iphoto gets a hold of them can be quite a hassle.

If this is the issue your having as opposed to an Aperture problem it may help to open iphoto, right click on a pic and click on "show file." This will open photo in finder. There you can right click again and choose "Get info" There will then be a Where: note that will show the location of the file.

For what it's worth, I import using Nikon Transfer and do my editing ( I use NX2 ) and save a jpg version to a different folder. I then import those files into iphoto.

I know mine is also a bit of a cumbersome workflow. There are many better ways and I'm looking into them myself.

Again, not sure if this is your issue but I hope it helps.

Mark.

If you go to "File" scroll down to "import" you will then have the option to import an iPhoto Library or to browse an iPhoto library and import individually.

Visit my Nikonians gallery. Actually, don't bother, there's nothing there!
