Previous versions of Aperture would sometimes not correctly display edits made in Photoshop CS5, but re-sizing the Aperture window was a workaround.  Currently, I am experiencing the same problem, but now with CS6, and the wordaround no longer works.  I would appreciate any help with this problem.

 

Thanks -

    Activate the crop tool, then cancel?  Just guessing -- I don't have CS6.  You want to find something that forces a redraw of the thumbnail/Preview.

     

    Just curious -- what are you settings in the PS save dialog?  Does the problem not occur if you flatten your PS file prior to closing?  (I don't know why it would.  I do know that the problem wasn't universal, though.)

    What file format are you using for the external editor? If you are using tiff files to send the quasi-masters to Photoshop CS6, make sure the extension is .tiff and not .tif, when you save the edited version Photoshop. I just tried, the edits in Photoshop are showing immediately in Aperture, if I "save as .tiff" in Photoshop. Funnily, the usual "Save" did not show the image. I had to use "Save as", and disable "Save as copy".

    Thanks for the response.  I tried activating the Crop Tool.  I am saving images in CS6 as TIFF's, and do not have any problem with any images except the rare one in which I use Content Aware Scale.  I have seen this problem in Aperture documented in other versions.  I have reported it to Apple as a bug, but would really like to find a workaround in the meantime.

    The workflow I use for my best images is to open the RAW file in Photoshop and edit it in ACR and CS6, and then import it into Aperture.   I tried changing the extention, but this did not fix the problem.  Here is what image looks like in Aperture.  There are supposed to be 2 top eagles, but the bottom eagle was moved and resulted in both images showing.  The image looks like it is supposed to in CS6.

     

    Thanks -

    Dudley, can you please elaborate a bit?

    It looks like you are having a completely different problem than I assumed. Do you have the same problem with all images you edit in CS6, or only with this image?

    Does the image, that you export from Photoshop display correctly in Preview?

    It looks like you created an image with several layers, that can be displayed as a PSD image, but not as a tiff.

    And Aperture does not promise, to be able to display PSD images correctly. It only promises to store them. As soon as an image has layers, Aperture will show phantasy images.

     

    Great picture - I have never seen a Bald Eagle outside a zoo. 

     

    Why do you complain? I'd be happy to have a picture with four bald eagles at once!

    The only images that produce this issue are those that use a feature in CS6 called Content Aware Scale.   It allows the user to change the dimensions of the image without distorting the subjects. I rarely use it.  The image is originally created with layers, but flattened prior to export. The images are all TIFF's not PSD's. 

     

    Thanks for the kind words about the photo.  I am photographing these Bald Eagles as they are fishing in the wild, and hope to sell some of the images.  What you see is the eagles fighting over a caught fish.

     

    Thanks -

    But does the image, that you export from Photoshop display correctly in Preview?

     

    I would like to know, if other imaging applications can display the image.

    Preview can not display the image accurately either.

     

    I just figured out the problem.  I did not save any extra layers in the image in CS6, but I did save a selection of the eagle whose outline is still in the image as an alpha channel.  Although this is not visible when viewing the image in CS6, it evidently was still visible by Aperture.  After deleting that, the image now displays correctly.

     

    Thanks for your help in trying to work on this problem.
