I spent a lot of time (more than I have ever done) editing an image in Aperture.  Lots of stages of dodging and burning, retouching etc.


I was happy with the result and moved on to edit the rest of the album. 


I have just gone back to the first image and Aperture is showing me the image as it was about 1/3 of the way through the editing process.


Any idea why? and is there a way of checking the history so that I can get back to where I was without having to redo everything.


Thank you.

    The x in the lower left indicates that this image was marked rejected. If you had the image selected and pressed the 9 key that would have marked it as rejected.


    To remove the x select the image and press the 0 key (assuming you don;t want to give it a different rating).

    The browser view can be filtered to show only certain images. In the upper right hand corner of the view you will see (if you open the pulldown)

    As you can see there are a whole range of filters you can set.  The normal state for the filter is Unrated or better. This shows all images that do not have a rating or are rated 1 star or above. Rejected images are considered to be below this and are not shown normally.


    To see rejected images you could select show all or select Rejected which would just show the rejected images. In addition you can see rejected images in the Rejected smart album located in the Recent section.
