With the loss of 32bit version and following updates Aperture has ground to a halt.  I have set up a new library, cleared settings, and have a max of 2000 images in the library at any one time.  Problem occurs with 10mb RAW files in folders of 200 images, never mind larger 22mb RAW files

I have also gone through Disc Utility to clean up my Mac

I cannot run Photoshop CS6 and Aperture at the same time (with all other apps closed).  Aperture crashes at least once a day !

Any help to speed up Aperture would be appreciated

Aperture 3, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), MacBook Pro 2.8GHz core 2 Duo, 4GB
