Is there a workaround for Aperture not displaying changes made in CS6?

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".

    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!

    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.
