the Last Import folder/album in the Library pane is showing a count of 88 images, but the viewer/browser doesn't show any images. I have cycled through all 3 view modes (also in full screen) and still nothing. I can't see that i have any filters set either.

    Michel.

    I am seeing this occasionally too, like this: a count of "4", but the project is empty.

    In the above example, I moved the last import to a different project, but the "last import" is still showing the counter, only the project is empty by now. This occasionally will happen, also when I am trashing the the photos directly after importing them. Have you manipulated the imported images in any way, directly after importing?

     

    On other occasions, it will take a long time for the "Last Import" to show the new photos, sometimes hours.

    For me it usually will help to repair the Aperture library (Repairing and Rebuilding Your Aperture Library: Aperture 3 User Manual), if something like this happens.

     

    Regards

    Léonie

    My wife was using that folder to flag images and then all of a sudden they were gone. I'll keep an eye on the folder next time i import images.

    Are you two sharing your Aperture library between two accounts? If yes, how have you set up that sharing?

    I have enough issues with multiple IDs on a single iTunes account (but that's for another forum).

    I meant working from different user accounts, not using different AppleIDs, but if you are not sharing the library and accessiing it simultaniously, that will not matter.

     

    Thanks for the reminder on repairing and rebuilding the library; it seemed to speed up Aperture for me.

    And did the repair recover any lost photos? Sometimes this will create a "Recovered" project.

    strangely the pictures were there. My wife was using that folder to flag images and then all of a sudden they were gone. I'll keep an eye on the folder next time i import images.

    If you cannot find your "Last Import" you can use "List View" to sort by "Import Session", if you add the day of import to the  Metadata display in List View: You can add the Import Session date to the Metadata View by clicking the bagde icon and editing the "List View":
