Hi, have an issue where all photos taken this year are showing image not found despite the fact I can see them when I open the photo library in preview, any thoughts as to why this would be?

Thanks in advance.

    This sounds like you did download them directly into the Aperture Library, but either left them on the memory card, or have moved the originals to be Referenced on another drive or volume.

     

    When you import from the camera or memory card, what are the settings in the import dialogue?

    Do you mean the app Preview, or the preview of the missing images?

     

    Have you done any restorations from TIme Machine?  Had any external drive connected at any time?

    My question Re Time Machine, was to see if you might have replaced from an incomplete library.

     

    In Preview, is the size of the file you found consistent with the size of an original from the camera, or a preview that Aperture made.

     

    Not a good idea to open the folders of the library with another app -- have you done this before?

     

    If you right-click on the Aperture Library file, and choose Show Package Contents, you can find both the folder for Previews and for Masters (originals).  Not the easiest to navigate, but that is the location of originals in a Managed Library.

    A report of everything displayed in the Import window when you go to import from your DSLR could be useful

    The best report would be a screen shot.  Failing that, just tell us what is the setting for every possible line of action in the Import window.

    Have you tried to log in with a differnt user account? It's possible that it could be a permissions issue. I'd suggest also trying a Repair Permissions on the library. Are you able to reprocess the image through the menu item?

     

    It's good to look inside your package of the library to see if your masters still reside there. If they do, then you are in good.

    Have you used the Finder (or another app like, say, Lightroom) to rename any folders in the path to your images? I've done that once or twice by accident, forgetting that it was going to mess up Aperture. I'm a bit annoyed with Aperture's "locate" images commands, too. I find it rather more difficult to reconnect a folder of images to their raw originals in Aperture than it is in Lightroom.

    Your current import setting is set a referenced and being placed in your Pictures folder in a sub folder call what ever your project name is. Did you look to see if these missing images reside there? Did you do a spotlight search for the file names to see if maybe they were moved somewhere?

     

    What you might be seeing when you open the library in a different application is the previews. You can look in your Aperture library package to view the previews. I also don't recommend doing this.
