Is it possible to import 1 folder with numerous other folders inside it into one project or multiple projects, doesn't matter how it divides them. I just don't want to have to import each folder individually. I have maybe 90 folders to import from an old hard drive and this seems very time consuming vs. just clicking and importing all. I have tried only highlighting the uppermost folder but it does not import anything at all when I do that.

Any suggestions to what I might be doing wrong or how I can fix this?


Thank you,

    have you clicked the import button after highlighting the topmost folder? For me this method works perfectly, at least in Aperture 3.3.2.


    • Use   "File > Import > Folders as Projects ..."
    • Select the topmost folder and press "Import".

    This should import a hierarchie of folders corresponding to the folder structure on your disk.
