I am trying organize my aperture library by first deleting my many duplicate photos. This library was originally built from my iphoto photos that were permanently brought over once I purchased aperture a while back. The project path is named iphoto for these photos. They appear to be in a folder called "iphoto Library" under the "Projects" tab, but when I open the folder the photos are not broken into events as many expect. Also, the photos from this folder do not appear when I select the "Projects" box under the "Library" heading. Meaning I cannot find a project called "iphoto Library" to match the project path. Does all this matter? Does the project path name matter? I hope I am being clear, thanks for even hanging in this far.
In addition, I imported photos and many were duplicates. These duplicate photos have the old label I gave them for project path name such as "December vacation" whereas the very same photos I imported from iphoto have the project path name "iphoto." Does it matter which one I delete? They are both the same size, resolution, etc. Is this going to screw up organization? I have 1,000s of duplicates that I am going through and deleting and they are the same photos in every single aspect (file name, size, pixel size, etc), they just have different project path names and their dates are literally off by a few seconds (I am guessing some sort of import issue via user error several years back).
In summary, does the project path name of my photo matter? If I have two photos that are the exact same except for project path name what does it matter which one I delete?
