You can try all the trouble shooting ideas from the previous posts., dumping Cache, plist files. Boot into Safe Mode, run scrips like Cocktail, Iceclean etc. Or use a card reader rather than connecting to camera. Sorry kind of like the old Dr joke.... Doc it hurts when I do this.... Well dont do that. I use a card reader all the time its faster and Im not likely to bump the camera off the desk. Cheers
Like I wrote, there are two easier ways to work around the problem: import from Finder or just rebuild previews.
Shotgun troubleshooting ideas are unlikely to help in my case, as I just had the hard drive replaced, so it's a virgin Lion with my data only migrated. (And everything else works perfectly.)
"I use a card reader all the time its faster and Im not likely to bump the camera off the desk."
Point taken. OTOH, I'd be likely to flip the card onto the floor at some point if I'm handling it all the time.
I have a pair of Panasonic M-43 (micro four thirds) cameras and a full array of lenses.
On both laptop and desktop using Aperture 3, with 10.7.4.
I now get a very heavy green / brown overcast on every image during RAW import. I must select every imported image and add a white balance adjutsment of "sunlight" to have a file normal in appearance.
That said. I attempted to apply the white balance adjust ment during import and it failed to make the correction.
Both Camera bodies
All Memory Cards
Core i7 MBP / 8 gig
Mac Pro Dual core
All running 10.7.4
This appears to be a corruption of the RAW importer since the last OS upgrade.
Stephouaz Did you change the import dialog box? Specifically where you have Raw + Jepg Pairs in the File type.
For the green issue everyone should try the rebuild preview option under photo and hold the option key to get "generate Preview" If that fixes it great you are done. If it generated the priveiw and returns to green then you have other issues. Keep up dating your sofware to make sure you are using the bes raw converter.
"I assume this also impacts iphoto."
I just tested this again. I saw the problem in Aperture, but could not duplicate it in iPhoto downloading the same images from my Lumix FZ 150.
Again, as dbmoore emphaized above, a solution seems to be to force Aperture to rebuild previews:
hold down option and choose Photos > Generate Previews.
At least that has worked for me every time.
I'm guessing this is someting in Aperture's interaction with the latest Digital Camera Raw.
I'll go way out on a limb and suggest that before the end of June, Apple will have to update Aperture, quite possibly to v 4. At the very least, they'll remove the Mobile Me button and other references to Mobile Me. I bet this problem will just go away by then.
BTW, I've also had a problem with Aperture not deleting photos from my camera card after importing when I ask it to. iPhoto did this as expected.
Here is the fix.
I got this from another area, and unfortunately can not attribute the origin here on the support forums.
Open the terminal, paste this text in and hit return. This repaired the issue in both my MacBook Pro and my Mac Pro.
