I'm not making a folder destination, I'm just exporting to the desktop . The version aperture exports to the desktop is the " unrevised " version of the photo ????

Is anyone else experiencing issues with exporting " versions " ? after completing my post processing I attempt to export the revised image only to find that the exported version isn't the corrected image that I've just completed ......Am I missing something here ?

I've just discovered a very good use for the 'Spot & Patch' tool. I had a series of niggling dust spots on all of the images I took the other day. I Spotted and Patched 52 small dust marks on a test shot I took.....

....then copied the adjustments (as you would normally) the image I was working on. I guess if done sparingly this would work great...if done not sparingly then like anything could cause more problems.

I did notice that, the spot and patch tool on a areas of complicated details looks like a little fuzzy ring, but after you've copied from one image to the next you can remove the 'spots' individually to correct the second image.

The image I was working on...

Very useful!!

I've got an iMac 24" 2.4GHz, I've had to upgrade it to 4GB RAM to run mt Aperture 3, but it was well worth doing, Aperture 3 is great. I had a long debate between Lightrrom and A3. The Aperture upgrade cost me less than half that of Lightroom, which paid for the memory upgrade.

Beyond that of course, I really like Aperture, it a brill piece of software.

I'm using A3 and I'm very tired of the slooow performance. I use a MacBook pro 2.53 GHz with 4GB of ram. I don"t know if investing in 8GB for $500 would help or if I should switch to Lightroom with LR3 on the way.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
What systems are you people using? I can't take the spinning beach ball much longer.

I've just discovered that if you rename the Aperture 3 icon when you upgrade to avoid confusion with the Aperture 2 icon which doesn't disappear, then when you do software updates, they don't appear in the list and can't be applied, simply because of a name change! I've just had to ring support to get it sorted. I would have thought that when it upgrades it would automatically change the A2 icon to A3? Weird!

Hey Everyone,

Sorry I haven't been around....had the coughs, splutter and bugs, been out of action for a while....I'm just about recovering the use of my brain for short stretches!

Well it's done!

Finally installed, and what a pain in the back side! With me having the old 24" 250gbHD iMac I didn't have enough hard space to allow the software to upgrade the A2 library to A3. So I had to move all of my work across to an external hard drive so I had plenty of free space for it to do its thing. Apparently it takes a copy of your library, then upgrades it then reinstall's it so that if anything goes wrong you still have 'a library that's not mashed'. That means it need twice the space that your library takes up just for the moves! So, now I've decided to keep my originals on yet another' hard drive which will be their daily home, A3 can source them from there. Which now leaves my iMac hard drive with loads of spare space. I'll upgrade to Snow Leopard when I got some more money, I'm skint now!

Today I will try to install my A3 upgrade on my MacBook Pro. Any suggestions....?
Comment by Paul Berry Photography on March 13, 2010 at 12:59am
AAAhhhhhh!!! I've installed A3 from disk, when I've tried to import my A2 it's lost it....I can't find it anywhere....crazy!!! I might have to resort to Time Machine go back a few days and start again....I thought Mac's designed to avoid all these crazy problems? I just hope I haven't lost all my A2 library completely??? I'm onto customer support already...they're digging for an answer....I'm waiting for a call back!

...I should have said 'vital pieces of anatomy' there instead of 'hardware', it would have sounded better...*grin*
