I am using one of the Nik collection plugins (HDR Efex Pro2), the plugin offered to save the adjusted files to "com.apple.aperture" - which I accepted with some regret. The attached shows I have saved 2 picture files in that location.


I now want to save the files to a more convenient / accessable location, which I am now doing, but I cannot figure out how to delete



from the folder in the attached screenshot.


I am using finder to try and locate these without success, my guess is they are in some sort of container (? - which I dont really understand)

All I want to do is delete these 2 files, can you help me find and erase these please. Thanks.Files.jpg

    Not at my Mac computer right now, but I would look in the following locations for the com.apple.Aperture folder:


    ~/Library/Caches (this was used by early versions of Aperture 3 - typically in Snow Leopard)

    ~/Library/Containers (this is the sandboxing folder in Mountain Lion)


    Where '~' is your Home user folder.


    You can use the 'Go' menu while pressing the 'Option' key to temporarily gain access to the ~/Library folder.


    Note - I am not sure why HDR Efex Pro 2 would be offering that location for a save though.
