I have Aperture updated and installed on my macbook pro and my iMac. On vacation, I imported the photos to my MBP for review and editing. I have done this many times in the past. I can export the Projects or the Folder of my vacation pics to an Aperture library and can put it on the desktop of my iMac. I cannot get Aperture to import this vacation library to add it to the main library on my iMac.
On my iMac, I selected "import library" (as I have done in the past) and it starts a process, calculating disk space and merging the libraries. With about 3/4 of the progress bar filled, it fails and no images are brought over.
I can "Switch libraries" on my iMac and can view all of the photos in the vacation library. The photos are there and the edits are present. I just can't bring them over to the iMac library successfully.
Both systems are the most current version of OSX and there are no new updates available for Aperture on either my MBP or my iMac.
Anyone know how to get Aperture to import a library in the new version? It looks like the new update of Aperture has a bug in it.
Try to add a duplicate image, one that is already in your library on the iMac to your "Galapagos Day 1a" library, then import this modified library into the library on your iMac. The duplicate image shoud force Aperture to ask if it should "Add" or "Merge". Select "Add". You will have to remove the one duplicate afterwards, if the import should succeed this way. This just worked in another thread with a similar problem: Re: Aperture wont import other aperture library files - no error message?
