Syncing Keywords between Libraries

I have Aperture 3.0.3 on both my iMac and MacBook Pro and want to sync the keyword list between the libraries. Is it possible to sync the libraries and have this happen, or is it more complicated?
Thanks -

Even though the license allows installation on two computers Aperture very much is a single-user app. (Most unfortunately) Apple has not yet seen fit to facilitate synch between two libraries even though it is an essential need requested by many.
To sync the keyword list between the libraries I would use identical keywords in both Libraries - - but it would unfortunately be a manual process.
Please add your voice to the chorus requesting single-user synch between two Libraries by going to "Feedback" under the Aperture menu. Note that multi-user synch is an entirely different potentially quite expensive beast.

  • Is there a way to sync to Iphoto Libraries one on my macbook and Imac

    I have two computers a Macbook and an Imac. We have been loading photos on both computers. Is there a way to now sync the photos on the two machines?

    One way is with SyncPhotos.  You won't get any edited versions, metadata (keywords) but it just syncs the original/master photos between libraries.
    The other method is using the paid version of  iPhoto Library Manager. You select the Events in Library A that are not in LIbrary B and copy them to B.  This will also copy edited versions, places, keywords, etc. 
    Then do the same for those Events in B that are not in A.

  • Using Lightroom Cloud to Sync Catalog Between Two Machines

    I have use of so many cloud services including the 20gb that Adobe gives me.  Is there a way i can sync my catalog on the cloud so that i can have all my metadata on both my laptop and desk top?  I also have 300gb of cloud storage though Copy.  I would just like some recomendations on how best to go about it. Thanks

    Hi Pat,
    Using Lightroom Cloud to Sync Catalog Between Two Machines
    If you’re running Lightroom on a laptop during your location shoots, you might want to take all the edits, keywords, metadata, and of course the photos themselves, and add them to the Lightroom catalog on your studio computer. It’s easier than it sounds: basically, you choose which catalog to export from your laptop, then you take the folder it creates over to your studio computer and import it.
    You need to decide whether you want to export a folder (all the imported photos from your shoot), or a collection (just your Picks from the shoot). In this case, we’ll go with a collection, so go to the Collections panel and click on the collection you want to merge with your main catalog back in your studio. (If you had chosen a folder, the only difference would be you’d go to the Folders panel and click on the folder from that shoot instead. Either way, all the metadata you added, and any edits you made in Lightroom, will still be transferred over to the other machine.)
    Please refer to http://www.peachpit.com/articles/article.aspx?p=1930499 for more details.

  • Sync multiple iTunes libraries with iPod?

    How do I sync several iTunes libraries (selectable by holding down ALT while starting iTunes) with my iPod Touch (4th generation)?
    With limited hard drive space on my Powerbook I've chosen to create an iTunes library which more or less just contains podcasts and internet radio stations etc. and use an external drive for another library which contains all my music.
    I was hoping I could switch between the different libraries and have my iPod sync to both of them, but alas I get a message when switching over to the "music" library that my iPod "belongs to" another library and that if I choose to use the current one everything will be erased and overwritten.
    So how do I prevent this from happening while allowing me to add music from the second library?

    I'm not sure if I've got it right but I've played around a bit after reading the above and come to the conclusion that I first need to check (turn on) the "Manually manage music and videos" (and most likely "Open Itunes when this iPod is connected") options in iTunes when I click on my iPod icon on the left column.
    But much to my surprise I can still have iTunes automatically (or so it seems) sync my podcasts which makes things a whole lot easier than doing that manually for each podcast update!
    For everything else (music, videos, PDF files/books/audiobooks, iTunes U, Ringtones etc.) I will need to manually drag and drop over to the iPod. To make things easier I created a playlist folder named "Manually transfer to iPod" with various playlists inside (just to make it easier to see what my iPod contains from that particular library and to organize things neatly).
    And instead of dragging the items from each playlist over to the iPod I simply select the folder, then drag all the items on the right hand side (contents) over to the iPod.
    I haven't tried switching libraries yet, but I assume I'll be able to add media from there as well without any problems.
    Was this what you meant?

  • Syncing two iphoto libraries on two different macs

    Hey
    Can't seem to find an answer to this one so here goes. I am trying to sync my iphoto libraries that I have on two different macs of mine. One a mac pro and one a macbook. Both are running 10.5.7 and iphoto 8 with all the updates. I have sharing on enabled on both macs and in iphoto. I can do a manual drag and drop but I have 1000's of photos and that would take way to long to do. Any suggestions would be appreciated
    Thanks

    Use iPhoto Library Manager to move Events/Albums/Pics plus associated metadata between Libraries.

  • Syncing styles between Word and RH HTML 7

    Question about syncing styles between Word and RH HTML 7.The
    printed Word format has Hdr/Ftr, TOC, Title Page stuff.
    I understood that, when importing a Word .docx, RH creates
    books for Heading 1s and Topic headings are Heading 2. That is why
    both Word and RH templates use the same paragraph style names
    (though the format in Word/print differs from that in RH/online).
    I imported my Word file into a new RH HTML 7 project. The TOC
    has the expected books/topics/subtopics. I imported the .css and
    the .htt from the RH 5 template project. I selected all 160 topics
    in the Topic List pod and applied the corporate .htt template
    (Topic Properties > General) AND (to be certain), the corporate
    .css stylesheet (Topic Properties . Appearance).
    This project doesn't have the same characteristics as the
    base/master from RH 5 that uses those same format files. I even
    imported the same skin. I get the banner, but not the styles.
    All the topic headings in the RH 7 project (were transformed
    to) are Heading 1 styles, even though they were Heading 2s in Word.
    (this breaks with my tribal knowledge of how RH imports
    Books/Topics from a Word doc). The heading colors (navy blue, royal
    blue, etc.) have taken on their own definitions--dunno where from,
    tho.
    Since I'm OCD about creating and using one style for each
    type of paragraph (procedurehead, syntax, procnum, procnonum, note,
    bullist) in Word or in RH, Peter Grainger's suggestion to "clean
    up" styles before importing shouldn't apply.
    RH instructions omit any detail about what to specifiy in the
    Conversion Options and Split On Style. I took a couple of swipes at
    the SOS--OK, split on Heading 1, Heading 2, Heading 3. So I get
    Books for Heading 1, separate topics for Heading 2 and Heading 3,
    but the "topic titles" have become Heading 1 in name but not in
    format. In fact, the format doesn't match anything I've specified
    in Word or RH. I thought by "attaching" the .htt and the .css to
    each topic (select all topics, , I'd have the look and feel I
    specified in my corporate RH(5) template. The banner imported, the
    navigation pane and icons imported. What happened to the styles?
    Here's the missing link that someone may need to explain
    (explicitly in Help somewhere). When I open the .htt template
    (sample topic) that I imported from RH 5, the topic title shows as
    Document > Heading 2 > in the Design view. The HTML view
    labels this paragraph as h2:
    <!doctype HTML public "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0
    Frameset//EN">
    <html><head>

    <h2>NameOfPackage: NameOfMethod</h2>

    Hi Jim,
    Don't know how useful my question is now, given that you posted over a year ago.
    Do your RH X5 Word source docs use styles?  If so, take a look here, and I detail how I have been able to import from RH X5 for Word to RH 7 HTML.  (I'm currently still working on a leftover issue with Keywords and Subkeywords.)
    One thing I have done which probably helped:  while applying new standards to our documentation, we have removed almost all images (screen shots, etc.), and have only retained those images which don't have a text equivalent.  The drastically reduced the import file size of my Word source docs.  All my images were referenced via TrueCode, but upon importing to RH 7 HTML, there was so much less to be processed by RH 7 HTML, that the import went much more easily and quickly.
    I hope this helps,
    Marjorie

  • Moving photos between libraries

    I take lots of photos, and, with previous incarnations of iPhoto, this was a bit of a problem. To get around it, I created multiple users on my computer, each with a themed library (family, travel, hobbies, etc.)
    With iPhoto 6 I can have much larger libraries, and multiple libraries for a single user. I have migrated my libraries (via an external hard drive) back to my main user, and open them as needed without a problem.
    Is there any way to move photos (original and modified, as a package) from one library to another? Or to merge libraries?
    I can export and then import from one to another, but I lose the original. Or I can burn to a disc, and then import, but this is time consuming and wasteful of discs.
    Any other suggestions?

    luba:
    Yes there is. The paid version of iPhoto Library Manager will let you move photos between libraries along with the originals, keywords, etc. It's about the only way to do it.
    With iPhoto's new alias mode there is a way to have several users use the same set of source files but each have their own edits, etc. You would place the source files in the Shared library and everyone use them as their source files. FWIW I've created some Tutorials to assist users covert from a conventional library to an alias based system.

  • How to move photo's between libraries?

    I have been moving photos from one library to another by dragging them to the desktop from a library and then using the Import command to place them in the new library. I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere as a way to move photo's between libraries. I didn't use the Export command simply because it was easier not to. The new library works ok, but did I lose something by using this method? When I use my method, I am only copying the edited version but not the "original" photo that may be in the library. Therefore, I don't have the original in the new library if I need it. This is ok since I no longer need the original. Do I understand this correctly. I would appreciate any explanation about this so.
    I am using iPhoto '08 version 7.1.5.

    Yes, if you drag from the iPhoto Window to the desktop you’re getting the current (edited) version of the pic. You’re also missing any added metadata, such as keywords etc.
    Yes, when you import to the other library you are missing the original file too.
    The only way to move pics/albums/Events (including metadata) between Libraries (and all versions) is with iPhoto Library Manager.

  • Can sync two iPhoto libraries? (via.mac?)

    My wife and I both use macs. We both take digital photos and so each have iPhoto libraries - both of which are inevitably incomplete. But what would be really handy is to have one 'shared' iPhoto library.
    Can users on two machines somehow sync or share iPhoto libraries - either through wifi sync or via .mac ?
    Thanks

    RossM:
    At the present there is not way to sync iPhoto 7 libraries. Any sync application can sync the image files but the database file, Library6.iPhoto, that contains all of the organization information, events, slideshows, keywords, comments, etc. has to be the same as far as content. Syncing apps cannot sync content of files. Until iPhoto Library Manager gets updated to be compatible with iPhoto 7, the only way is to export and import manually. At least the exported file will contain the keywords, title, comments and changed date (if the date was changed).
    So keep new photos in their own events so that when it comes time to export and import it's easy to know which are the new ones.
    Do you Twango?
    TIP: For insurance against the iPhoto database corruption that many users have experienced I recommend making a backup copy of the Library6.iPhoto database file and keep it current. If problems crop up where iPhoto suddenly can't see any photos or thinks there are no photos in the library, replacing the working Library6.iPhoto file with the backup will often get the library back. By keeping it current I mean backup after each import and/or any serious editing or work on books, slideshows, calendars, cards, etc. That insures that if a problem pops up and you do need to replace the database file, you'll retain all those efforts. It doesn't take long to make the backup and it's good insurance.
    I've written an Automator workflow application (requires Tiger), iPhoto dB File Backup, that will copy the selected Library6.iPhoto file from your iPhoto Library folder to the Pictures folder, replacing any previous version of it. It's compatible with iPhoto 08 libraries. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.

  • Migrate Roll between Libraries?

    I imported a set of photos into iPhoto 6.0.6 on one computer and edited them. Now I'd like to merge the entire "roll" from that computer into my main iPhoto library on a different computer in such a way that preserves all the "roll" attributes, including edited photos, original photos, and all metadata. (In other words, I want the result to reflect what would have resulted if I'd done all the work on the destination computer.) Is this possible?

    William:
    You can do that with the paid version of iPhoto Library Manager. It allows you to copy rolls/albums between libraries (they must be the same version) while preserving keywords, comments, ratings, etc., like this.

  • Syncing to aperture libraries

    I have my MacBook Pro with about 4k photos and an iMac with another 2k photos. There are some that are the same, but many that are not. I don't have many adjustments to my photos.
    I want to have the iMac as the primary Mac where I store and use Aperture. To clarify I want to get all the photos off of the laptop and on the iMac. So I am trying to find a way to sync the two libraries. I have not found any good solutions so far, even after many hours on google.
    Has anyone run into this problem? Do you have any solutions or suggestions? I would like to hear.
    TIA

    As you have discovered, Synchronize! Pro X works very well to do just what you said. It will sync any files or folders on different computers and I have been using an old version (3.4, I've never updated it as the company's update policy is not very end user friendly) to sync my documents between desktop and laptop. My current configuration is a MacBook Pro (2.4GHz) and a G5 desktop (dual 2.7GHz) -- I put the MacBook Pro into target mode and connect to the PowerMac via a firewire 800 cable. In addition to syncing my documents I also sync my Aperture library to keep them exactly the same on both computers. It works very well and means that I can actually back up to my vaults and link to referenced files (on removable disks) from either computer. It takes a little discipline to remember what I did last so that I don't change both the libraries between syncs, but I've got used to that and it doesn't generally cause me any problems. I use the PowerMac as my main Aperture computer and take the MacBook Pro travelling. Synchronize! Pro X seems to treat the Aperture library as a folder and only syncs the changed contents rather than the whole 25GB. This means that syncing rarely means copying more than a GB or so.

  • Sync library between two computers

    I want to sync my music libraries so that the songs I uncheck, are unchecked on both computers.
    Is this possible?
    I have a macbook at home with my physical library.
    I use itunes match so I have my music on my work cpu (PC)
    When I'm at work, I unchecked the songs I don't want to listen to... and do the same at home, but they are not in sync.
    Thoughts?
    Thanks!

    No there's no way to automatically sync two Libraries, and trying to do so will trash one or both of them because no syncing software can parse the iPhoto Library database.
    Yes you could have a common Library and keep each other's content separate. Simply keyword the pics 'His' and 'Hers' and use a simple Smart Album to separate them out. You can even - based on those tags - make two master Events - one for her pics and one for his.

  • How share or sync photos between two Apple computers

    I have hundreds of different photos in iPhoto on my iMac versus on my MacBook Air. How can I sync these photos into one large file?

    What do you mean by "Sync".
    The general term means when two Libraries (A and B) are compared and files in Library A are copied to Library B, while files in Library B are also copied to Library A so that both Libraries are identical.
    This is bi-directional copying and you cannot do this automatically with iPhoto. No Syncing software is capable of parsing the iPhoto Library in this manner. One or both of your Libraries will be damaged if you try this.
    You can have uni-directional copying - files in Library A are copied to Library B - this is essentially backing up. Obviously you can also copy from Library B to Library A.
    The nearest you can get to syncing is to use iPhoto Library Manager to move files/Albums/Events plus associated metadata between Libraries. This process cannot be automated.

  • Sync multiple iTunes libraries on one ATV

    Is it possible to sync the itunes libraries from my two macs onto one appleTV? The libraries are unique.
    When I try to switch source to sync....ATV says I will replace the contents from the previous sync with the contents of the other mac.

    I don't have an ATV yet (should be arriving any day now), so I can't test this, but at the very least you should be able to stream from two different iTunes libraries on the same computer. This article mentions doing it:
    http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=305287
    Apparently when there are multiple logins with multiple instances of iTunes running on the same machine, they use additional TCP ports that would normally get blocked by the firewall, if it's turned on. Maybe you've got the firewall turned on, and it's smart enough to open a hole for the standard iTunes port (3689) but not the extra holes for additional users (49152 and above).
