I just purchased Aperture last night (3.4.3). I'm running 10.8.2 ML. All of my photos were previously in iPhoto. When I first opened Aperture it asked if I wanted to merge, I choose yes (in order to have a "unified" library).
I can view all my photos in both iPhoto and Aperture. The question that I am getting to here is regarding the name and type of the library. I only have one library in my "photos" folder, it is named iPhoto Library, so every time I open Aperture it says that it is opening the iPhoto library. If I look at the type of library from the finder in "Get Info" the type is an iPhoto library.
So basically I have no Aperture library, just an iPhoto library.
Does this sound normal? Should I / Can I change the name of the library (to avoid any confusion, since I'll be using Aperture for my photo organization and editing needs), maybe change the name to something like "Steve's Photo Library"? Do I / Can I change the type of library to an Aperture library? Is any of this necessary?
It just seems odd that when using Aperture it states that I am using an iPhoto library.
I hope my query makes sense. Thanks for helping.
PS - I've read all the Apple support articles, watched videos, searched this forum along with Aperture Expert and just can't seem to find anything similar to my issue with the library.
