i am organizing my folder-project organization in aperture and i am simply moving PROJECTS from the parent level into a FOLDER. if i look at the PROJECT initially i am seeing images in this project (it is how i know where i want to put the Project organizationally in terms of putting it in one or another folder) BUT when i put it in a Folder i don't see any images when i click on this.


i had been thinking this was sort of a temporary glitch or something to do with RAM being used by another program but now i am getting a bit worried about this.


about two weeks ago i was seeing the wrong thumbnail image on an image (maybe the image was in a Project that was a shoot of dogs and one or two or five of the images would show cars on the thumbnail) even though when i clicked on the image it came up large size with the correct image.


anyway, i thought i rebuilt the library per instructions on this from kirby.


do i need to do this again? close aperture and re-open?


start looking behind my monitor or under my desk.......

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.4), with 64 bit Win7 in Parallel

    first check, if you have a filter set on this folder.


    Select the folder that you moved your project to in the library inspector panel and look at the search fields in the browser and the library panel and look, if these search fields are showing "All items" or "Showing all". If not, clear them.

    Are those regular albums or smart albums? With smart albums you may change the source of the album, if you drag it to another folder.

    - i am now back on the computer and all the images are now showing up.

    This looks like Aperture need a lot of processing to simply move a regular library item. Have you had any crashes or force quits lately? Then I'd suggest to repair your Aperture Library.
