Just downloading the new iPhoto 9.2.2


It claims "Photos können jetzt aus dem Photo Stream gelöscht werden". (You now can delete Photos from Photo Stream) - I hope we will be seeing this soon in Aperture, too - finally.

    I hope they release this feature including Aperture 4 soon


    More and more I read on the Internet blogs and forums, people start investigating Lightroom or migratie from AP3 to lightroom. I hope again for a release soon and that Aperture is still a app for the photografpy profressional.

    iPhoto? I'm not sure why you are referring to iPhoto.


    When I upgraded to iOS 5.1, I went into Photo Stream on my phone and deleted photos. Then I launched Aperture and the photos I deleted on my phone were now out of Aperture.


    I didn't try deleting from Aperture, but I assume it would work the same. Did you try deleting your photos in Aperture first? That didn't work?

    I believe leonieDF is referring to iPhoto to offer information.


    Her point is that now you can delete individual images from Photostream with iOS5.1 and iPhoto 9.2.2 and she expressed the hope that this feature will soon be added to Aperture.


    Currently you cannot delete photos from the Photostream with Aperture. It doesn't work the same.

    Oh. I missed the fact that there is now an iPhoto version 9.2.2.


    The new version supports deleting photos in Photo Stream? Odd that they released an iPhoto version for this, but not an Aperture version. Is that odd, or cause for concern?

    The phone was the first place I tried it, since I had thought that was the only SW that was updated to handle deleting photos. I had missed the fact that a new version of iPhoto also came out.

    It is a pity that you actually have to launch the App to see if any Application needs updating. I liked it better when the Apps told us, whenever an update was available.

    My App Store Dock icon has a numbered badge (very like the Mail Dock icon) that tells me when updates are available.  (Still battling the cold mountain air, 10.6.8.)  Of course, that's for only App Store apps.

    Have the new version, delete photos that I don't want in photostream and lo n behold, there they are again next time I start Aperture.


    Same on IOS devices. Why is it so difficult to delete photos in Photostream?

    Strange. I had a similar problem and solved it, but I'm not sure how.


    Symptoms: delete Photo Stream photos on iPad, iPhone and in Aperture library. They stayed deleted on iPad and iPhone, but reappeared in Aperture after each restart.


    Theory one: I just waited long enough, and some timeout realised that the photos actually were not there.


    Theory two:  I have most of my photos on an external harddisk, and that harddisk was not connected, when I deleted the Photo Stream files. Once I connected the external harddisk, Aperture realised that the Photo Stream was empty.


    Theory two makes no sense in theory, as the Photo Stream files were not stored on the external harddisk. However, there may be some peculiar block in Aperture that first wants to verify referenced files, before it removed Photo Stream photos.
