aperture 3.4.3

mountain goat 10.8.2




In aperture, I make changes to a photo and then I want to email it.


I click on the icon and select email a`nd it opens up the apple mail 'new mail' box (which is great).


However, when I click on the photo being sent I notice that the photo being sent is the 'original'.


What am I doing wrong & how do I send the changed version (which has been improved and cropped etc.)

    I don't see the same as you. For me, Aperture sends the edited version.


    What adjustments exactly are you applying? Are you applying them in Aperture or using an external editor? Have you set Aperture to automatically create previews in the "Aperture preferences > Previews" panel? You could try to update the previews  for the image you are sending (select the image, then use the command "Photos > Update Preview").


    Also I'd try to repair your library, since Aperture obviously is not accessing the previews correctly, when it is mailing the image.


    Does the correct image get mailed, when you simply drag the edited image version from your Aperture window to the "Mail" icon in your Dock?

    As a word of explanation -- dragging to the Mail icon can only use an existing Preview.  Using the Share by Email command will actually export to a new message in accordance with that Preference setting for Email.

    Dragging only accesses the Preview -- Leonie has addressed that your Previews are likely not getting updated.  but the size image will always equal that which you have set for Previews.


    However, Share by Email is a totally different thing.  It exports versions to the new message according to the size (and also Format if needed) settings you have entered in Aperture Preferences/Exports.
