Aperture Trick #5 EASIER FOLDER IMPORT

Filed under: Tricks — Scott @ 9:49 am

I just imported a bunch of older folders full of images into Aperture from one of my hard disks. I selected eight folders by shift-clicking them and then tried to convert them to projects. I went onto other things only to find a dialog box asking me if it was “OK” to import a folder.

This means you have to babysit the entire process.

So I tried importing just one folder and got no dialog box. While that folder was importing, I decided to drag another folder into a project and another and got no dialog box. So, here’s the trick. If you want to avoid having to interact with the “OK” dialog box, don’t select your folders for import as a group. Just drag them in rapid succession, one at a time into the project and you’re done.
