Hi there, been using Aperture since it first came out but I have only recently been getting up to speed on Photostream since recently purchasing a new iOS device (only had my laptop previously so it wasn't an issue), so just trying to get a couple of quick clarifications. If someone can confirm or explain the below if Ihave it wrong please do, I would greatly appreciate it:
1 - in Aperture I have clicked the preference to turn Photostream ON, and also clicked the option to Automatic Import. Does this mean that I am both accessing the my Photostream AND making copies of these photos in Aperture at the same time so they won't be lost?
2 - I see 2 locations for the Photostream pictures: one in the RECENT menu called Photo Stream, the other down below under PROJECTS. If I understand this correctly, the RECENT photos in Photo Stream are just that, the ones in PROJECTS are the copies on my HD?
3 - is it fair to assume then that I have 2 places on my iOS device as well (Camera Roll being ON the device, Photo Stream being in the Cloud)?
4 - it seems that the Photo Stream keeps ALL the pictures I take and doesn't take into account the deleted ones (either on my iOS device or in Aperture), so what happens when I have reached this 1000 picture limit? Is it assumed that since copies are being put onto both my devices (if points above are correct) that I never need to worry about actually losing any photos which I keep?
5 - finally, is there any way to push only the photos I like (or edit and keep) on my iOS device to the Aperture Photo Stream PROJECT instead of all of the photos? Seems to me that once I connected it all together I found I had to go through and delete all my bad shots a second time, something I would prefer to avoid.
thanks for any clarifications
