I imported some images today that appear quite small in the viewer window and also are very small in size, KB as opposed to MB.  I've attached a screenshot of the image information.


Can you tell me if I did something wrong when taking the pictures (with Canon Powershot G11) to make this happen or is it a setting in Aperture causing size to be small?

    Aperture does not scale down your images when you are importing. The original image file must have been scaled down.


    Did you import directly from your camera or your card using Aperture's "Import" panel?


    Check the setings in your camera. There must be a menu somewhere, were you can set the image resolution.
