I found I cannot import presets I downloaded, the original place has been moved.

 

Any one can help me figure it out?

 

 

Thanks.

    Yes, I have this problem too: Edit presets seems to have gone altogether, and I have no idea how to import presets in Aperture 3.3 any more.

    Are you referring to the adjustment presets? If so the ability to import is still there:

    First select Edit Effects... and then

    Choose Import....

     

    Or are you refering to something else?

    Glad it helped.

     

    Why Apple decided on changing the names of so many things in this release of Aperture is beyond me. Masters are now originals, Adjustment presets are effects, etc.

     

    I guess someone had to much time on their hands

    Whent everything looks differently, why not name it differently?

    Now we have to write everyting twice, if we do not know the Aperture version a poster is using:

     

    "After applying the Effect/Adjustment Preset change the version name and the metadata tags in the Info-tab/Metadata tab or use batch change to apply the the changes to the original image file/master image file as well"

    Who is supposed to read all this?

    Couldn't have said it better myself

     

    What we need is an old Aperture to new Aperture dictionary. Or better yet an App that will take the posting and automatically convert the terms depending on the version of Aperture installed!

    I couldn't agree more. It's like having to start afresh. I understood Aperture as it was before; now I don't (clearly). Why they had to change the colours of the interface also doesn't make sense to me. It's HARDER to find things now everything is grey.
