Two specific questions on how Aperture handles the iPhoto library

I've not been able to find an answer to this online. I have a few thousand photos in iPhoto. I'm happy with how they're organised, appear on my iPhone/Apple TV etc. However, some of them need a little improvement above what iPhoto's tools can offer.
If I access the iPhoto library from within Aperture and edit a photo:
- Will the file appear as normal the next time I start iPhoto, but reflecting the edits I've done in Aperture ?
- Will it leave an original copy in the iPhoto library structure, and put a new 'modified' file in the iPhoto library?
If not, what is the easiest way to achieve my aims? In particular I'd like to preserve the original date, time and location the photos were taken.
Thanks in advance.

No and No.
In more details:
- Will the file appear as normal the next time I start iPhoto,
Yes... but
...reflecting the edits I've done in Aperture ?
No. Like iPhoto Aperture is a Database and can only "see" and "process" photos that have been imported to it. So there's no option to "open" a photo, just one to "import". Once imported and edited or processed you would need to export to the desktop and import to iPhoto as a new image.
Will it leave an original copy in the iPhoto library structure,
Yes, Importing is copying, not moving...
and put a new 'modified' file in the iPhoto library?
No. This is perhaps the biggest difference between the two apps. When iPhoto edits a pic is preserves the original by making a copy in the "Modified" folder. When Aperture performs the same task it records your decisions in the database and applies them live each time you view the pic. There is no "modified" file, only the original and a record in the database.
For the kind of operation you are describing you require an external editor for iPhoto. In order of price here are some suggestions:
Seashore (free)
_[The Gimp|>_ also free
Graphic Coverter ($45 approx)
Acorn ($50 approx)
[Pixelmator|> ($60 approx.)
Photoshop Elements ($75 approx)
There are many, many other options. Search on MacUpdate.
You can set Photoshop (or any image editor) as an external editor in iPhoto. (Preferences -> General -> Edit Photo: Choose from the Drop Down Menu.) This way, when you double click a pic to edit in iPhoto it will open automatically in Photoshop or your Image Editor, and when you save it it's sent back to iPhoto automatically. This is the only way that edits made in another application will be displayed in iPhoto.
These will work in precisely the way you describe.

  • How to find the iPhoto Library

    I have an iPhoto '08 library on a removable hard drive, and for some reason, my computer decided not to read that one, but instead, start a new library. My old library seems to still be in tact because its size has not changed. I've tried moving the library around to different locations in order to make the iPhoto 08 application ask me to locate my library. It's started using a new library somewhere on my computer and I can't find where. The only Library that shows up in spotlight is my old one on my other hard drive. Does anyone know how I can force the program to ask me to locate my library? Or does anyone know of a fix for this?

    J S
    Launch iPhoto while depressing the (ALT) key and use the select library option to navigate to the correct library on your removable drive
    The most probably cause of your problem is that you launched iPhoto while the removable hard drive was not mounted and available - if you are going to have the iPhoto library on a removable drive you must be sure it is mounted and available before launching iPhoto and never remove it while iPhoto is running

  • Can you import into Aperture from the IPhoto library on Time Machine?

    Having size problems with huge IPhoto library.  Would like to install Aperture and import from iPhoto library backup on Time Machine HD but would like to know before I purchase Aperature.

    No replies so I purchased Aperture and attempted to import from Aperture.  Could not do it. Very disappointing.

  • How to move my iPhoto library to a new iMAC?

    how to move my iPhoto library to a new iMAC?

    To move an iPhoto Library to a new machine:
    Link the two Macs together: there are several ways to do this: Wireless Network, Firewire Target Disk Mode, Ethernet, or even just copy the Library to an external HD and then on to the new machine...
    But however you do choose to link the two machines...
    Simply copy the iPhoto Library from the Pictures Folder on the old Machine to the Pictures Folder on the new Machine.
    Then launch iPhoto. That's it.
    This moves photos, events, albums, books, keywords, slideshows and everything else.

  • How to handle the OK button of the parameters prompt of a crystal report

    how to handle the OK button of the parameters prompt of a crystal report in vba.NET?
    I want to use the parameter prompt from the crystal report itself and I want to know when the report is ready. I need to export programatically by sending email to a list of employees after the parameters has been set. The emails I send depends on the results of the report.
    Im using a CrystalReportViewer control  in VS2010 and Crystal Report for VS2010 v13.0.1.220.

    Right. But the parameter screen is driven by the viewer. Unless you create your own parameter screen and pass the parameters to the report via code.
    Another thing I am not sure about:
    "Then by code I want to read all the employees id from the report and send email to them with specified pages of the report. (1 page per employee)"
    How do you plan on reading the employee ID from the report? I am not aware of any API that will read a value in a report so that you can then decide what page to send to whom.
    I think you're approaching this kinda backwards. A question to ask is; can you do what you are trying to do in code in the CR designer? If not, using APIs will not work either. I suspect your approach should be a report that uses an employee filter. Run the report for employee x, get the report populated with the data for that employee and email it. Repeat for employee x1, employee x2, etc.

  • How to handle the Timestamp datasource while migration

    Hi All
    " I tried searching the forum,but didnt get the relevant one,hence posting this question".
    While migration from 4.7 to ECC in R/3 system,
    how to handle the Timestamp datasources( especially FI like COPA and other ) while extarcting the data from source to BW during source system migration.Since we need to empty the delta queue and should make sure that there are no delta records exists in delta queue.
    Like for sales datasources using LO,we will be executing the V3 jobs for execting the LUW's from LBWQ to RSA7?  In the same way is there any particular way for this also.
    Anyone whi knows abt this pls share your views

    Hello Shankar.
    Before the upgrade (import of a queue), all extraction queues and open
    update orders in all clients must be processed. The content of the setup
    tables must be deleted. To avoid problems during the upgrade or to
    correct them, carry out the following steps:
    1. Call transaction SMQ1 and check whether all queues in all clients
    (client = '', queue name 'MCEX') have been processed. To process the
    queues, start the collective run report for each application in the
    displayed clients. If you no longer need the data in the BW system,
    deactivate the relevant extraction queues and DataSource in the LO
    cockpit (transaction LBWE) and delete the queue entries in transaction
    2. If you use the V3 update that is not serialized (usually only for
    application 03): Start collective run report RMBWV303. Then check the
    update orders in transaction SM13. If there are incorrect update orders
    in transaction SM13, correct the orders and then start the collective
    run report again. If you no longer require the update orders, you can
    delete them. There may be inconsistencies between tables VBMOD and
    VBHDR. For further information about this, see Notes 652310 and 67014.
    3. Before the upgrade, delete the contents of the setup tables. Execute
    report RMCEX_SETUP_ENTRIES to find out which setup tables still contain
    entries. You can use transaction LBWG to delete the contents of the
    setup tables for all clients.
    Unfortunately the check that the system carries out during the upgrade
    or when you import a Support Package does not display all affected
    applications. Therefore, Note 1083709 provides a check report that you
    can use to determine all affected applications and tables or queues.
    More detailed information please check these following notes:
    1083709-Error when you import Support Packages
    1081287-Data extraction orders block the upgrade process
    I hope I can be helpful.

  • How to handle the situation to forward work item manually?

    Hi All,
    In my workflow -
    For agent determination I have some custom logic to determine agents. If custom logic donu2019t return any agents then the requirement is work item needs to send back to workflow initiator.
    My issue-
    When no agent determines
    1.Work item needs to send back to workflow initiator - and he should not able to Approve or Reject work item - He Can only forward work item to any other person manually (he determines to whom it should forward).
    2. After manually forwarding the work item it is normal process 2 level of approval from that point .
    Please let me know for the first item how to handle the situation?
    I have developed 2 section - one goes with regular agent determination -
    and the other one when no agent determines then I am assigning back to workflow initiator. Now I want to handle that - initiator should not accept or reject and he can only forward to someone. How to develop this?
    Please let me know your thoughts.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi All,
    Thanks for the answers.. sorry for late replay.. requirement was not confirmed.
    1. As I described in my question
    After my custom conditions.. I have to send workitem back to initator ( Now initiator forwards the work item to someone else  ( need to restrict  users  based on role - )..
    While doing this process initiator should not have access to approve or reject he should only forward the workitem.
    After forwarding the work item -this person should have approve or reject options.
    My question is not answered..
    1. As Vijay told..
    Dont give Approve and Reject Options and in Description u specify like
    If I dont provide approve/reject when I am sending the work item to initiator - After initiator forwarding this work item - how do we the other approver will get options  Approve and Reject?
    2.  AS -surjith kumar
    If your Using the Rule or Expression you have to restrict via coding -  This will solve one of my problem -
    How I can restict  users with role based?
    My problem is not solved.. Initiator should not have access to approve but He should only forward the work item...
    Please let me know...

  • How to handle the master data when we are loading the from multiple clients

  • How do I set the iPhoto library as the Aperture default library?

    I missed the opportunity on first opening Aperture to set the iPhoto library as the one that Aperture uses as the default, and now cannot find out how to do that after that point (it was getting late by the time I had found, installed and updated a copy of Aperture for my Mavericks based system).
    How can I set the iPhoto library as the default, I don't want to have to select the iPhoto library every time I open aperture, but even knowing how to do that would be an improvement on my current knowledge!

    That's what I read, but aren't they the minimum specs? Do you know what the upper specs are for using them together? Eg 3.4.5 won't work with iPhoto x.x etc?
    I bought a Retail copy of Aperture 3.0.2 then downloaded the latest Maverick copy of Aperture I could as an upgrade (3.4.5) from the Apple Support site. But there was a newer version 3.5.1 which will also run on Mavericks, but is not currently available either as a retail copy or as an electronic download as Apple will only sell 3.6 now as Yosemite came out a few weeks ago. I really don't want to get Yosemite as then I won't be able to run Filemaker 11 at home for the office. And I can only upgrade Filemaker by getting a whole new set of licences for all the other computers in the office, costing about €2,000 altogether. Then I will have to buy two new Apple Mac minis costing another €1,000. And there are potential issues with other software that I will have to "up"grade to including iWork's watered down products. Wherever I look, Apple is making my life difficult.

  • How to import the old library of iPhoto in a new imac with aperture 3.4.4

    Hi guys I'm a happy owner of a new 27-inch iMac. I previously had a G5 and I had my old iPhoto library on an external hard drive. Now I would like to import this Iphoto library in Aperture. I do not want to create duplicates and I would not want the photos to be saved on the internal hard disk but in my exterenal hard disk.
    After importing the Iphoto library can I delete it from the external drive?
    What procedure should I use to make this?
    Thanks in advance for your help and answer!

    After importing the Iphoto library can I delete it from the external drive?
    What procedure should I use to make this?
    In addition to Terence Devlin's advice just a few words of caution, since merging and upgrading libraries will be a major reconstruction of the libraries - better be safe than sorry:
    Check your available free disk space. Merging libraries will need temporarily plenty of additional disk space, more than the size of the library that will be imported.
    Before upgrading your iPhoto library, check, if your backup of the iPhoto Library is current. Don't merge the libraries without having a current backup of both libraries - your Aperture library and your iPhoto library.
    Merging and upgrading libraries is safest, if both libraries do not have any inconsistencies and permission issues. Run the "Library First Aid Tools" on both to repair the database and to repair the permissions, before you do anything else. To launch the "First Aid Tools" hold down the key combination ⌥⌘, while double clicking the library in question.
    After you imported the upgraded iPhoto library into your Aperture library, as Terence Devlin explained, check the result of your import carefully, if it is complete. There may be referenced images, that fail to import, or images synced from Photo Stream, Facebook, or something. Do not delete your old iPhoto Library, until you are sure, that every image has been transferred correctly and can be opened and edited.
    Regards and Good Luck!
