This tripped me up as well. Let me see if I can find my flow-chart. (Busy right now -- may be a couple of days.)
The work-around is simple: create a new version after making Aperture adjustments and send that to the second of the external editors. Creating a new Version forces Aperture to create a new (new) Master when you invoke the "Send to External Editor" command. This new Master has all of your Adjustments baked in.
(At least that's how I remember it. Apologies if wrong.)

Thanks for that. Assume this is a bug that can be "fixed" by that work-around?
Either way, it gets the job done so cheers for that.

Did anyone ended up finding a better solution? This get annoying real fast for us multi round trippers.

This is not a bug! Aperture will not modifiy the master -- the quasi master created to send to the external editor is treated in Aperture as a master, but when tripped to the editor gets modified there. Any adjustments made in Aperture subsequent to a trip through the external editor will NEVER get picked up by a return trip. To do so would be a violation of the never modify the original doctrine.

I'm not sure I follow you Ernie, because by that logic wouldn't it not send the adjustments for the first round trip? Why discriminate only subsequent trips?

The workflow when first sending is that you have a Version resulting from adjustments. Since that Version does not exist as an actual image file at that point, when you then ask Aperture to send it to the external editor, it then must create the quasi-master (together with the adjustments to that point made in the Version) as a proper image file to send.

Here is an Apple provided tip for working with Photoshop as an External Editor (which by extension currently applies to any use of third-party software used to edit images in conjunction with Aperture).
Hope this helps.
