This is a repost of a question I asked in the wrong place...sorry!


I have Lightroom 1, but now having a more powerful Mac and with the advent of Aperture 2 I have made the switch to Aperture instead of upgrading to Lightroom 2 as I prefer the look and feel of Aperture.

I have nearly 500GB of photos on an external drive and have imported them to the Aperture Library, leaving them in "current location".

They all seem to be under one "project", I thought that leaving them on their hard drive would make them referenced; is this right?

More importantly, all my Lightroom-adjusted images have appeared with adjustment icons showing on the images, which I can't remove. I wouldn't have been surprised to just get the original RAW or jpeg unadjusted files but this has confused me! Have my Lightroom adjustments actually come through the import somehow, and if so how do I remove the icons?

Thanks for any help or directions to an explanation of what's going on here.
