Missing "show aperture library" command

Under File... this command is missing. I have the latest iphoto version. Any idea where it is?

It may be a preference file, other than iPhoto's, that's causing the conflict. Try the following to determine if that's the cause:
Trouble Shooting Preferences in Leopard
1 - Create a folder titled "Preferences A" on the Desktop.
2 - Open the working Preferences folder, HD/Users/your_name/Library/Preferences, and move the contents to the Preferences A folder on the Desktop.
3 - Make a duplicate copy of the Preferences A folder on the Desktop as a precautionary backup.
4 - With the working Preferences folder empty run the application again and determine if the problems is fixed.
5 - If the problem is fixed:
A - open the working Preferences folder (HD/Users/your_name/Library/Preferences).
B - Open the Preferences A folder on the Desktop, select all of the contents and drag them into the working Preferences folder.
C - When the Copy window pops up check the "Apply to All" check box and then click on the Don't Replace button as seen here.
6 - If the problem is NOT fixed, empty the working Preferencess folder and move the contents of the Preferences folder on the desktop back into it.
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 created 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 and Leopard. iPhoto does not have to be closed to run the application, just idle. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.

  • "Show Aperture Library" missing in iPhoto '11

    This is an issue that I had when using iPhoto '09 as well, but I thought upgrading to '11 might help.
    It didn't.
    I like to use Aperture to manage my more "professional" (and I use that term loosely) photography so that I can use plugins and have better editing capabilities. I also like to use iPhoto for more casual photo maintenance and sharing purposes.
    Typically, I would just view my Aperture previews in iPhoto for sharing by clicking File>Show Aperture Library
    Ever since I upgraded to Aperture 3, iPhoto hasn't shown the "Show Aperture Library" option.
    Any ideas as to why this is or how to fix it?

    Under iPhoto->Preferences->Advanced make certain the Copy Items to iPhoto Library is unchecked
    You need to be very careful before making such a choice. You're changing the nature of your Library from Managed to Referenced. Before you do this you need to be sure of the consequences - i.e that you are now responsible for file management - and how, if you're not careful and don't plan your photo management appropriately, you can easily lose data.
    As to the core issue: I certainly have that option checked and I also have the Show Aperture Library option.
    Does the Show Aperture Library command go away if you re-check the option in Preferences -> Advanced

  • IPhoto "Show Aperture Library" misses some images

    I am running Aperture 2 and iPhoto 09. When I access the "Show Aperture Library" menu in iPhoto to import Aperture images it does not show images that were scanned in from my Canon MX860 scanner. They are in JPEG format. They show like any other image when I am in Aperture. This problem does not exist with images taken with a digital camera. I don't know why a scanner's JPEG image would be any different.
    Is there a way to correct this? (I realize I can export images from Aperture to the Desktop and then drag-and-drop to iPhoto as a workaround.)
    Thanks for your help.

    Make sure the scanned images do not have a Grayscale color profile but an RGB or sRGB color profile. iPhoto works with these but does not support the Grayscale profiles. If the photos do have a grayscale profile, you can change that in Preview or any other photo editor that allows you to change the color profile of a photo.

  • Iphoto 09 "Show Aperture Library" can't load images from Aperture 3.1

    I'm trying to create a calendar in iPhoto 09 using my photos in Aperture 3.1. When I select from iPhoto "Show Aperture Library" I just get the spinning wheel. Below is my environment and what I have tried:
    * iMac 27 3 ghz
    * 4 G Mem
    * 10.6.5 OSX
    * iLife 09
    * Aperture 3.1
    * All updates applied
    Below is what I have tried/verified:
    * In Aperture, Preferences, set the previews to share with iLife and iWorks "Always"
    * Reviewed export Presets - didn't see anything that may apply
    * Verified it worked on my old iMac (20 inch 2 ghz, ilife 09, Aperture Trail version 3.0.1)
    * Created a new Aperture library (new mac) and still can not see it from iPhoto
    Unfortunately, I can get into the Trail version on the old mac (expired) to see if something is configured differently or if this function is not supported in Aperture 3.1.
    I know I can export from Aperture and Import into iPhoto, but thats seems like a lot of work for what I need to accomplish.
    Someone please show me the light!

    It should work in 3.1 also so thats not the issue.
    First if you try to access the Aperture library from an application other then iPhoto, say mail, does that work? If it does then the problem is most likely with iPhoto. If you get the 'spinning beach ball' in mail then its looking like Aperture.
    Assuming its Aperture you should go through the steps outlined at [Aperture 3: Troubleshooting Basics|http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3805]. Do those and let us know what happens.

  • Show Aperture library and MULTIPLE aperture 3.0 libraries

    In iPhoto'09 it is possible to File -> Show Aperture library. This seems to open the library most recently opened in Aperture 3.0. Is it possible to use "Show Aperture Library" and open a different library, if you have MULTIPLE aperture 3.0 libraries? If so, how? Thanks.

    Thanks. I was afraid I might not be able to easily change this, but...
    Which preference file are you referring to? I have several Macs on a home network with a NAS. What I am really trying to do is let other Macs on the network use their versions of iPhoto to browse an exported portion of my Aperture Library.
    I am wondering... I can easily place an export of part of my Aperture 3 Library on the NAS. If I open that NAS Library in Aperture briefly to write the preference file. Then copy the path and preference file to the other Macs, before reverting Aperture back to its normal local Library (which is what I use). Would this:
    1. Allow the other Macs on the network to find and browse the NAS Aperture Library Export?
    2. Cause the non-Aperture Macs any problems. (They couldn't overwrite the Aperture preference file, as they do not have Aperture.)
    3. Any other issues?
    Thanks for your help.

  • LR3 Import dialog - Missing "Show in Library" option when importing existing photos

    Please add the option "Show in Library" into the right click menu when attempting to import a photo that already exists in the LR3 catalog. It was a convenient feature in LR2 to jump directly to the existing photo. In LR3 I must cancel the import dialog and search the photo manually.
    Maybe someone has a workaround?

    Thanks Sean.  Your reply worked.  I found them in the wrong drive.  Now I'll see if I can fix it.

  • Iphoto not showing "show aperture library" as an option

    I have Aperture 3.03 and I have clicked on the "share library with ilife" in the preferences window. When I go to iphoto, I click on "File" and that "share aperture library" option is gone, now where. I cannot click it because it is not listed. Any ideas on why this might be?

    Have you generated Previews in Aperture? If you haven't then there's nothing for iPhoto to see.

  • Auto update iPhoto to show aperture photos

    I shoot in raw and use aperture to manage all my files. I have iLife 09 also and like the faces and places functions.
    Is there any way of being able to open iPhoto and it automatically pulls all changes from my aperture library including any new imports? Ideally I'd like each aperture project as an event in iPhoto.
    I know how to show my aperture library but that involves importing new events manually and I've heard there has been issues of iphoto not bringing metadata in with the photos, which would be vital as I geotag my photos before bringing them into aperture.

    The problem is when you use the File -> Show Aperture Library command in iPhoto you’re not accessing the files only their Aperture previews.
    The only way to do this is to export from Aperture - writing the metadata to the files along the way - then import into iPhoto.
    There is some automation possible - if you can export to a Folder on the desktop then you can set an app like Hazel to watch that folder, and, on noting changes to automatically import to iPhoto (and trash afterwards).
    My own take: Don’t bother. It never occurred to the developers of Aperture that it would have a wide usage outside the Pro setting. It never occurred to them that folks would want two-way communication between Aperture and iPhoto. My guess is that Places will be added to Aperture in the near future.

  • Aperture - iphoto link broken after moving Aperture Library

    Dear all,
    I just moved my Aperture library as I ran out of space. I used the iphoto 11 to Aperture link ... imported some images from Aperture into iphoto. How can I tell iphoto the new location of the Aperture library for the images which are already referened in iphoto?
    in iPhoto I get the message "The photo “....jpg” could not be opened, because the original item cannot be found. Then it opens a file browser to point to the file ... but that's of not much use if it resides in the Aperture library!

    Welcome to the user-supported Aperture discussion group.
    I used the iphoto 11 to Aperture link ... imported some images from Aperture into iphoto.
    There is no such thing as "the iPhoto to Aperture link". You are trying to use Aperture and iPhoto together, and that will not work. You should choose one and use only that one. Aperture knows about iPhoto enough to initialize your Aperture library when you first use it. iPhoto knows enough about Aperture to be dangerous. If you use the "Show Aperture Library" function, you should really only use it to temporarily put Aperture photos into an iPhoto library *for the purpose of some function missing from Aperture*, and there are really very few. The only one that I can think of is to use Apple's printing services for cards and calendars, which is not available in Aperture. I.e., don't use both iPhoto and Aperture for digital management.
    How can I tell iphoto the new location of the Aperture library for the images which are already referened in iphoto?
    That is really an iPhoto question. Someone here with recent ties to iPhoto may be able to help, but we are all Aperture users first, and some posters were iPhoto users.

  • Aperture library size vs iphoto

    My aperture library and iphoto library have the same photos in them. Photos seem to be the same size and quality (I imported all photos from aperture into iPhoto). iPhoto's library is 20GB, Aperture is nearly 60. I'm guessing that while Aperture might be a hair bigger because of the previews (default settings there), 3x the size means something is wrong.
    Is there a way to rebuild the Aperture library without losing all my albums/libraries?
    While 60GB isn't the end of the world, I'm trying to move my photos to my laptop. And between photos and music, I'm really pushing my hard drive's capacity. That 40GB difference is going to mean I'll use iPhoto (09) vs Aperture (2), and I'm still partial to Aperture.
    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
    Message was edited by: unleashed

    Thanks everyone for their help. Redoing the previews helped. I think I had the previews set to "do not limit" on my dekstop and had just pulled the aperture library to my laptop. Redoing those previews took 20GB off my library size.
    I see where you're coming from with the referenced images, but for now, it just keeps things simpler for my to keep it all managed. It's a brilliant solution though, if I need to in the future I might go that route. Especially when you think about possibilities with having the referenced images on Time Capsule or something. I don't take that many photos, and I upgrade my computer every year or two. I'm hoping the laptop hard drive space will expand gradually with my photo and music library, and by the time I have to worry about it, there will be another solution.
    As far as how I went from Aperture to iPhoto (Ernie), I did (from iPhoto) file > show aperture library > then pulled them all in. I know there are issues with this though, you might check the iPhoto forum if you have trouble, there are work-arounds I believe.

  • Aperture Library Window Stuck

    I wanted to import some albums from my Aperture library to iPhoto one. So I opened iPhoto and went to "File -> Show Aperture Library", and the problem is that this little window can't finish to load Aperture images, I was waiting for several hours and still "loading". I don't understand is it because my Aperture library is so huge or perhaps I have some other problems on my computer? Yesterday I went to sleep and left my computer on with that "Loading Aperture images..." and at morning there was still no use, still loading. My Aperture library is not that much big actually, around 12'000 of photos. Nu what to do?

  • How do I share my Aperture Library on Apple TV?

    Hi there! Anybody knows how to setup Apple TV home sharing top show Aperture Library instead iPhoto Library? I have everything working fine so far but I'm not able to share my Aperture Library at Apple TV. Any light on this subject? Please, help me! Thank you in advance for any clue!

    I'm running iTunes 10.1.2 (17), and there is no such option under "Advanced."
    I too am running iTunes v10.1.2 (17) and, as you can plainly see, there is such an option:
    Which, in turn, opens this window:

  • IPhoto on my MacBookPro does not open - shows a box "Aperture library needs to be upgraded". I do not have Aperture installed and I am not interested to do so.

    On my MacBookPro - After updating iPhoto 11 to version 9.3.1, it does not open and shows a box "Aperture library needs to be upgraded" with choices to update or Quit. If I quit it closes iPhoto - if I try to update it goes to the App Store and requires a purchase of Aperture - I do not want to purchase Aperture.

    If you tried the First Aid Tools without success, make a backup of the iPhoto Library and rebuild with iPhoto Library Manager as described by Terence Devlin:
    uprgraded to yosemite all good but iphoto crashes every time I attempt to upgrade the photo library
    Download iPhoto Library Manager and use its rebuild function. (In early versions of Library Manager it's the File -> Rebuild command. In later versions it's under the Library menu.)
    This will create an entirely new library. It will then copy (or try to) your photos and all the associated metadata and versions to this new Library, and arrange it as close as it can to what you had in the damaged Library. It does this based on information it finds in the iPhoto sharing mechanism - but that means that things not shared won't be there, so no slideshows, books or calendars, for instance - but it should get all your events, albums and keywords, faces and places back.
    Because this process creates an entirely new library and leaves your old one untouched, it is non-destructive, and if you're not happy with the results you can simply return to your old one.

  • Aperture 3 library won't show repair library screen

    I tried to update my Aperture 2 library today (470GB) and everything worked just fine till it got to 96% and stayed at this percentage, so i force-quit Aperture. The library now only shows 400GB but I have one still in the old version with the rest of the pictures (according to the size). The new library opens but most of the thumbnails are screwed up (just vertical lines or black screens), so I wanted to repair the library (I also cannot import it into a completely new library) but holding down command & option while double-clicking the library just opens up the library instead of going to the repair window. Any ideas on how I can force it to come up?
    EDIT: Totally forgot: It says in the activity that it is updating the library and going through the photos. No idea what it is doing, I'll let it run for now but it'll take some time till I know what it does, since it tells me it needs to go through >10,000 objects.

  • IPhoto library-file deleted - and originals missing in Aperture....

    Just moved my Aperture-library to my new iMac. Unfortunately almost all pics came from my old iPhoto-library which is gone now.
    I can't do anything but look at the pictures. Can't edit, export, share etc.
    When trying to e.g. export a file Aperture says 'The selected original image is either offline or not found. Please reconnect it and try again.'.
    Don't ask about the backup from Time Machine - that too is gone...
    Now what?

    How did you import your old iPhoto photos? And with what Aperture version?
    Before the unified Aperture - iPhoto library has been introduced, it was possible to import an iPhoto library as referenced. This left all originals in the iPhoto library, so iPhoto continued to work, but Aperture could use the master files. Is that the way you imported your iPhoto library, with the master files in there original location?
    When trying to e.g. export a file Aperture says 'The selected original image is either offline or not found. Please reconnect it and try again.'.
    That is the typical error message, when Aperture cannot access the original files. And Aperture wil not be able to do anything with your images, unless you restore the missing originals.
    Just moved my Aperture-library to my new iMac.
    Where did you move your Aperture library from ? From an older mac?  From a backup?
    Did Aperture work on that old Mac and could access the originals?
    Do you still have that old mac, and is there any chance that recovery software could retrieve the missing original files on that mac?
    Sometimes Aperture reports originals as missing, even if they are managed inside the Aperture library.
    You can find out, where Aperture is looking for the original files, if you select some image files in the browser and use Aperture's command "File > Locate Referenced Files".
    In the panel that opens, you can see the path to missing files in the upper right corner below the thumbnail.
    What do you see, when you use that command?
