For anyone who may be interested..... after a little bit of hassle finally spoke with a
techie in the aperture department.
It seems Aperture 2 is not compatible with the Lion (OS 10.7.1)
You need Aperture 3 (no surprise there).
You can download Aperture 3 from the app store for $80.
Aperture 2's library will be recignized by the Mark 3 program and will be
updated to work with Aperture 3 ...which will make it unuseable by Aperture 2.
upshot is .... if you upgrade to Apert 3 ..you gotta do it on all your computers
or not at all.
actively looking at Photoshop Elements 10 instead. At least that way I can use the same program on all my ,machines and download from one to the other without compatibility problems.
