Aperture Trick #1 MULTIPLE LIBRARIES

Filed under: Tricks — Scott @ 3:52 pm

Lots of you were concerned when I announced new information on Apple’s new photo software called Aperture. One of the biggest complaints was that Aperture currently requires that all photos in a single library are stored on the same drive. I have spoken with Apple about this and have an update.

First, this is going to change in future versions but it’s not something that can be fixed in time for the official product drop date.

But there is a workaround. You can in fact have multiple libraries that are selectable from within Aperture. You can create a “personal” and a “work” library and switch between the two by selecting the desired library in Aperture and then restarting.

It’s unfortunate that you can’t yet switch on-the-fly between libraries without restarting, but again, in future versions, Apple expects that you will be able to do this on the fly.
