Hello,

 

is there a way to delete the original files in Iphoto, and keep the enhanced ones only?

The only workaround that came to my mind is to export the folder to the desktop, delete the event, and reimporting the folder. But this is a lot of work with hunreds of Events...Has Aperture such a feature?

 

Thank you in advance!

Michael

    No.

     

    iPhoto, Aperture (and Lightroom) offer lossless processing, which requires the Master at all times. If you don't want that you need to use other apps for your photos.

    Edit: iPhoto, Aperture do not offer - they force you to work this way entirely. The same thing with "faces" in Iphoto . I wonder what is behind it, that they do not even think about to have a setting to turn this off. Can´t be that difficult, if it is possible in Aperture.

    You know, that's a very valid  point. It's the same as a Spreadsheet forces you to work in Cells or a Text Editor forces you to work in, well, text.

     

    You're confusing these apps with editors, and the solution for your issue is to use an editor because that's what you want.
