Aperture Trick #4 – HIDDEN FILES IN FOLDERS

Filed under: Tricks — Scott @ 9:15 pm

I discovered (quite by accident) that if you have a folder name that starts with a tilde e.g. “~”, Aperture will not show you any of the files inside that folder. This can be a pain or a boon, depending on what you want to do. Have some pictures that you don’t want any casual user to see? Put them in a folder and name it “~”xxx. All you have to do in order to see the files inside the folder is to remove the tilde from the folder name. Of course if you have lots of existing photo folders you want to import into Aperture and for some reason have named them all with a tilde character in the lead, you’ll have to rename all your folders.
