    Actually that was what I was asking. Does that make sense to use it that way. It seems to be the way Apple recommends in the video they discuss moving from iPhoto to Aperture 3.

    One issue for me is I have my current settings saving in 3 ways - time machine, on a cloaned backup every week, and on the cloud. If I make major changes to the iphoto library like copying it then it will take a couple of weeks to backup to the cloud again.

    I don't think it makes sense from a Usage point-of-view. It adds unnecessary complexity and unnecessary complexity is the mother of dataloss I can't see any advantage to using both apps in the way you describe.

    If I make major changes to the iphoto library like copying it then it will take a couple of weeks to backup to the cloud again.


    So you're trapped by your back up routine? Sounds like a good reason to change the back up routine. I'm a bit jaundiced by the Cloud. I think we're quite a few years away from the point where it's a viable way of backing up large installations like photo Libraries, movie libraries et al.

    Of course, off site back up is vital. I have my Photos backed up online (not the Libraries, just the pics) and I have two on portable HDs. One lives in my car, the other cross town in a family members house.

    One more question for the group. What is the difference between the $199 version and the $79 version in the new App store?

    no difference functionally, as far as I am concerned... I am told the difference coming from licensing. I am sure someone out there can answer better than this.
