Hi.  I must be missing something obvious -- I'm trying to show the contents of two Albums in the Browser, but I want to collapse the Stacks and Aperture won't let me (menu and toolbar icon are grayed out).  Even if I select as the second Album a newly-created Album that is empty, as soon as it is selected all Stacks in the first-selected Album are expanded and become un-collapseable.

 

 

Thanks in advance.

    Smart or regular? (not sure it makes a difference but still...)

     

    I'm seeig the same behaviour in regular albums. Selected two albums, the Close all Stacks menu item is grayed out. Unselect one of them and the menu item is active.

    Stacks are not out friends!

    Just in case you are wondering, I see the same behaviour in Aperture 3.2.1 under Lion; regular albums or smart albums make no difference.

     

    Version stacks are the only kind of stack I ever use. I tend to delete images until there is only one acceptable shot left and no need to stack anything.

    I see,

    sofar I have not used stacks for your second kind of stack; for panoramas I use an external editor, and only the finished panorama makes it into my Aperture Library - is there a versatile Panorama maker plugin for Aperture to simplify this? But seems to be a very good approach to use stacks for this kind of work. I'll have to learn how to do focus stacking, but I am not an artist like you.

     

     

    Any idea why?

    No, I did not not even notice this weird behaviour before you pointed it out.

    Thank you for the Hugin recommendation. I'll certainly give it a try. Sofar I've used Panorama Maker - it's easy to use and came with my camera for free, but it's cumbersome since there are never updates unless I get myself a new camera
