Aperture Trick #45 Managing Your Library on a Laptop

Filed under: Tricks — Scott @ 5:39 pm

Aperture’s bulging library of RAW files can bring your laptop’s hard drive to its knees. My co-Aperture teacher and Aperture Tricks contributor Derrick Story  was down to one GB of free disk space on his hard disk and had to find a solution in order to keep Aperture running on his laptop. The system he worked out uses an external LaCie mobile drive to store his master Aperture library. Then, he drags out Aperture projects onto the laptop’s hard drive. Once he finishes working on the project, he adds it back to his master library. You can read more about how this works at Derrick’s site here: How to Manage a Large Aperture Library on a PowerBook.

Thanks for this great trick Derrick!
