Hi,

 

I've just realized that my iPhone photos will import into a specific project, but they will not then show in the smart albums in the project.

 

For example, all my photos are uploaded to 2013 project.  In this project, I have a series of smart albums by date, i.e., June '13 restricted by the date feature to only show photos from that month.

 

Even though the photos are in the main project, they will not show in the smart album by date-the dates are on the photo, but for some reason, the photos don't show.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks.

    What is your Aperture version? Is Mac OS X (10.3.x)  still correct? I thought an iMac would at least require Mac OS X version 10.4 Tiger?

     

    Even though the photos are in the main project, they will not show in the smart album by date - the dates are on the photo, but for some reason, the photos don't show.

    That may have several reasons. It takes awhile for a smart album to be updated, so the images may not show immediately. And the source of the album may be set to a different project. Check, if the source of the smart album is set to "Library" and not to a single folder or album.

    What kind of smart rule are you using to restricct the Date?  A "Date" rule or a Calendar" rule? A "calendar" rule is easier, because you do not have to enter the date in exact the right format.

    The source of the album is set to Library then project 2010 (the project the photo has been placed in) and then iPhoto Library.

    It is hard to tell in the screenshot, but if you click "Library", then the background will turn darker and the source will be set to "Library", even if the other options are still listed to the right of library.
