I opened my Aperture 3.3 photo library with iPhoto 9.4.2 ; it worked fine.

But from then on, I can no longer open the iPhoto9.4.2-updated photo library with Aperture 3.3.

The error message says (in French, my usual language) : "Warning - impossible to load the library because it comes from a *newer* version of Aperture".

Why doesn't the "unified library concept" (from iPhoto 9.3 and Aperure 3.3) work by me ??

Am I losing my 30.000 photos ??

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities

     

    You don't lose your data. Open  > Software Update and update Aperture to the most recent version

    Aperture needs also to be updated to the most recent version. Update Aperture to 3.4.3, otherwise it will not understand the new library format. The Library format changed between version 9.3. and 9.4.

    With every iPhoto version, library is updated, so you need a newer Aperture version to make it work with that program

    You are right, it is not obvious, which iPhoto version matches which Aperture version. It would be very helpful, if this would be documented. But it is always the best bet to upgrade to the most current version, then the versions will be compatible.

     

    Send feedback to Apple, I'll do the same: http://www.apple.com/feedback/aperture.html
