Has anyone whose upgraded to Mavericks noticed if Mail has added an Add To Aperture feature for saving/importing photos from Mail directly into Aperture?

 

Similar to the Add To iPhoto feature that already exists in Mountain Lion?

    In Mavericks I am still only seeing this, when I open an image attachment:  Export to iPhoto, but not "Export to Aperture".

    In Mail, there is a Save pull down menu. Did Mavericks add Aperture?

     

    Or is it sill only iPhoto? (image below from Mail in Mountain Lion)

     

    You'd think a new OS is about the only time they can add something like this to Mail. I supposed it could be added as an update later to only Mail. Maybe it needs a revision to Aperture as well?

     

    Either way, what are they waiting for?

     

    Where's Aperture X?

    Actually, since iPhoto and Aperture now share the same library, adding the photo to iPhoto by definition makes the photo available under Aperture as well.

    But only, if you have opened the Aperture Library as the current iPhoto Library. If you are using iPhot and aperture on different libraries, to be able to compare two photo libraries opened at the same time, you are out of luck.

    I don't see these menus any more in Mail.app in Mavericks, only the contextual menu I have shown in the screenshot. To save an attachment, I ctrl-click the attachment. And then I can "Export to iPhoto", but not to the current Aperture library - unless it happens to be the iPhoto library as well, as Rex Ross pointed out.

    Fair enough.  Just never had a reason to have different libraries in aperture and iPhoto.  Very easy to define and open new libraries as needed.

    Just right click the photo and select Open With/other and then select Aperture. Kind of a crappy way of doing it but is the fastest that I know of.
