I have multiple images where I used Sharpen instead of Edge Sharpen. I know I can Lift & Stamp the Edge Sharpen adjustment to multiple images but I can't seem to find a way to remove the Sharpen adjustment from all of them first. Is there a way to accomplish this? Thanks

    Hi,

     

    there are two ways to do, what you may need.

    1) You want to remove all adjustments: (translated from German version to English) choose Pictures/Remove all adjustments (alle Anpaasungen zuruecksetzen).

    2) I attached a screenshot from a manual to add or replace a lot of different adjustments (f.e.sharpening).

     

    http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/Aperture_3_User_Manual.pdf-page 272 shows, what you need.

     

    Hope this helps

    Hi,

    Those are 2 ways of adding adjustments.

    But how about removing 1 specific adjustment, without interfering with the others?

     

    For instance , I have added a keyword to 10 images, then decide that for 6 images I want another keyword.

    I can add the other keyword using your techniqe, but how do I get rid of the wrong keyword without interfering with the other keywords I have already set for the images?

     

    I have not yet found  a way to do that.

     

    Regards,

    Hi Jan,

     

    first of all, wouldn't it be easier in German? But anyway, doesn't it work with "replace" instead of "add".

    Keywords are metadata, not adjustments.

    If you want to add or remove keywords to multiple images, without interfering with the keywords that are already set, I'd suggest to configurekeyword sets and to use the keyword controls:

    For example, after designing a keyword set"Himmel" (sky) I can add or remove one of the keywords for all selected images  by simply pressing a button in the keywords panel or using a key combination: for example ⌥6  to add the keyword "Halo" to all images, ⇧⌥6 to remove it from all currently selected images.

    But the question is, how to remove one adjustment from multiple images, and that seems to be behaving buggy in Aperture 3.4.1, at least on my system: If I try to add an adjustment to (or remove from)  multiple images, only the primary selection will be modified - and yes "Primary only is disabled ).

     

    For example: Trying to add "Sepia Tone" to four images: I see the same on two MBPs and on my iMac with Aperture 3.4.1.

    Hi,

     

    Thanks for pointing out the difference between "adjustments" and "keywords.

    They are indeed different things.

    Your solution will probably work, but it seems a lot of work for something simple.

    But when I need to change this on large amounts of images it can be done.

     

    The sepia tone:

    I see the same behavior on my machine when trying to add sepia tone.

    (To add however, you can use the lift and stamp tool.)

    But removing the adjustment on more than 1 image is indeed the problem.

     

    And I am from Holland, sorry but English is easier than German for me.. :-)

     

    Regards,

    So, after several days of trying I couldn't find a way to remove one single adjustment from multiple images. My workaround ended up being to apply the Sharpen adjustment to all images with 0 values... effectively leaving the adjustment in place but not causing any changes in the image. Kinda clunky but seems to have worked.

    Works fine on 3.3.2.  Just a data point  .
