I know that Aperture stores my pictures in the users folder under pictures and then Aperture Library.
In my mac this is a 33GB file.
I wanted to burn some events to a dvd, but can not find the event structure in the library.
Can actually find only a couple of pictures, certainly not 33gb.
The structure is based upon the years, so I have 2010 and 2011,even though some events are much older.
Am definitely missing something, but can someone help me out what it is?

imac, Mac OS X (10.6.6)

    Welcome to the user supported Aperture discussion group.

    but can not find the event structure in the library.

    Don't look for them in the library. The database has an internal structure that is meant for Aperture, not for us users. That's why you have to do a special command in Finder to even look at the pieces of the library.

    If you want to do something *outside Aperture* with your pictures, you must export them to somewhere (a temporary folder on your desktop is usually good), and then use them from there.

    Thanks, Nathan, solved my problem, even though I still do not understand the structure of the Aperture Library.

    You're welcome. I don't think most of us here understand it! BTW, the internal structure radically changed between Aperture 2 and Aperture 3, even though what is displayed to users remained mostly the same. There's no guarantee it will remain like it is either!
