I've scanned an old slide, cleaned it up and have tried to use it in a book.  Occasionally, the upper half of the picture will go completely black on the screen. Restarting Aperture will often correct this, but even when it show correctly on screen, it will still print half-black.  I've done this with hundreds of other photos from scanned slides, but the half-black phenomenon has only ever shown up on this one.


Maverick disabled server functionality, which I have not yet restored, but I don't think that's relevant to this issue.

MAC MINI SERVER (LATE 2012), OS X Mavericks (10.9)
