I have been using Aperture for about three years. I have Aperture 3 on three different Macs.
Prevously I have been using Windows XP and have been storing photos in directories on the hard drive the old fashioned way.
I have some questions about the storage structure of Aperture and I cannot find the answer in the Manual nor online.
Here we go.
1. When I import photo's into Aperture, it creates a "Project" both under "Library" Projects and under "Projects & Albums."
Q: If I delete a project under "Library" do the photo's contained in that project get deleted from Aperture's Library?
Q: If I delete a project under "Projects & Albums" do the photo's contained in that project get deleted from Aperture's Library?
2. I have been a user of Mobile Me gallery since it came out, even before I bought Aperture. I have synced the Mobile Me galleries with my copy of Aperture 3 on each of the mac's so I have redundant copies. I understand that Aperture will automatically sync changed photos so I am pretty sure all the image files for each mobile me gallery now exists on my hard drives.
Q: As Mobile Me Gallery will not longer be supported in June, if I delete a Moble Me Gallery via Aperture, will the images in my Aperture Library still be there?
I know this question seems odd, but the manual is not really clear on this issue.
3. While I am here asking the pro's this is a question I think I have figured out.
The Bar has hashes on the right side and solid color on the left. I assume this shows The total Drive side, and the total amount of free space availble at that moment, yet it does not show the size of the actual vault. And Green means plenty of room left, red means getting close to full. Dum quesiton but I need varification.
Thank you very much for your patients with a relatively new Aperture User.
