Hello

 

Confused as to where my pictures go and how they are stored using photo stream.

Pictures I shoot on an iPhone get put into a monthly project in Aperture.

If I go to reveal in finder they are not found.

Also confused about once the pics are filed in a project, if the image is deleted from photo stream will it stay in the project.

I want to free up space on the iPhone and take the images of there but leave them in the project on my MacBook Pro.

 

Is there any reading people can point me towards to help me understand this.

 

Thanks

    Pictures I shoot on an iPhone get put into a monthly project in Aperture.

    If they are put into monthly projects they will be auto imported and the auto import will store them as managed original image files. For managed original the "Reveal in Finder" will not work, since these images are stored in the "Masters" folder in the Aperture Library.

     

    Also confused about once the pics are filed in a project, if the image is deleted from photo stream will it stay in the project.

    Yes, once you added it to your library by monthly autoimport, it will stay in the library, even after deleting it from the Photo Stream.

    I want to free up space on the iPhone and take the images of there but leave them in the project on my MacBook Pro.

    That should be no problem. Deleting from the Photo Stream on your phone is save, once you see the images in the auto import project.

     

    Is there any reading people can point me towards to help me understand this.

    that if I do nothing, the images will auto delete from the iPhone and iPad and MacBook Pro, but stay in the project on the MBP?

    Yes, after some time, when the stream fills up and older images will be replaced.

     

    For back up I will have to copy the Aperture library then?

    To save your edits, tags, and other managed original image files, yes.

    So the images will always stay in the masters file?

    Yes, unless you delete the imported images, just like any other images you imported to Aperture. Are your other images referenced? Stored outside Aperture?

    Looking for the simplest and foolproof way to store/catalogue my images.

    Still find it slightly confusing the way photo stream works, and to rely on it 100%

     

     

    Note Photo stream is in no way a means to store images. It is a temporary holding area that is designed for sharing images between devices. If you have images in the stream that you want to keep make sure you copy them to more permanent storage.
