Just want to see if anyone happens to know whether aperture syncs adjustments over iCloud to the photostream on the iDevices. It is pretty annoying sometimes to see the raw, unedited originals on my iPad, rather than the updated versions that you just spent one whole afternoon editing.


MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    The Photo Stream is not synced.

     

    New images that you import to Aperture are automatically added to the PhotoStream, if you have automatic upload enabled, but that is it. If you edit an image and create a new version, you have to add the edited version to your stream - simply drag it there.

     

    Regards

    Thanks for your reply. So Aperture does not 'automatically' syncs adjustments. Hope the software engineers at Apple will fix this in the next major update. Anyway, thanks.

    Cheers

    Photo Stream is not the tool for this (afaik -- I don't use it).  Sync a container in Aperture with your iDevice(s) (via iTunes; each iDevice has it's own Photos syncing tab) and put the Images you want to show on the iDevice in that container(s).

     

    I suggest Smart Albums.  Either create a Keyword (e.g.: "iDevice!") and assign it to the Images you want to be able to see on your iDevice, or use Smart Settings that give the result you want (e.g.: all 5-star Images modified in the last 6 months).  If you've turned on syncing over Wi-Fi (which you should) the syncing will happen automatically when possible.

     

    My iPad is my portfolio.  It syncs seamlessly and automatically with my Portfolio Albums in my personal Aperture Library.

    I do sync with the smart album function. It is just recently when I looked at my photostream I thought it would be nice if iCloud could wirelessly and automatically update the pictures with the adjustments. Technically it shouldn't be too difficult for apple to add this functionality on top of the existing upload function of iCloud (I guess).

    Thanks everyone. I'll stick to the old fashion solution using smart album + iTunes sync then.

    It leads me to think if Automator can work it out, likely constantly moving my adjusted versions into my photostream. Any ideas?

    Okay I admit I'm not entirely obstinate or insisting on using photostream. Just curious.
