What sort of camera do you have? Do you have different cameras that have this issue, or is it a specific camera's RAW format that shows this problem? Also, what version of Aperture do you have, and are you still running OS X 10.6.8?

Hi. I currently use Canon, and i only see it in my RAW files. All camera firmware is up-to-date. I am running latest version of Aperture, but still running 10.6.8. I went through a bunch of old photos where there was a good red color of something and i was able to duplicate the problem each time. Where there was a large area of red, it was VERY noticable. Also, I used to shoot with Nikon and my NEF files do the same thing where there is a nice red. It seems to be an Aperature "thing."
What i find so curious, is that even if I make no adjustments to the Levels sliders, just checking the box alters the color, same with the Vignette brick. Also, I do color calibrate my monitor. thanks.

...here is a little more interesting info: I noticed that my old NEF files had not been Reprocessed with the current RAW converter. Prior to reprocessing, all functions as it should. After reprocessing, the reds go all goofy. So, my conclusion would be that there is something goofy going on with the RAW converter. I should try this with ACR...

I've seen this a bit with vignette; I've had some purplish-red colors change to orangeish-red. In my case it was the paint on a model car.
You say you're on the "latest version of Aperture" however the latest Aperture version (3.4.2) does not run on 10.6.8. Do you mean you're on 3.2.something?
You may wish to use Aperture's "Send Feedback" option and be absolutely explicit on the camera you're using, with the Aperture version and the OS X version.

I just double-checked, I am running Aperture 3.2.4. I guess that's the "latest" version for my version of the OS, 10.6.8. I have been reluctant to move to Mountain Lion. Maybe I should. Maybe that will fix things. Otherwise, I will send feedback to Apple.
