    Mkmichaelmk -


    I wasn't talking about editing photos with Aperture (although it can do that) - the idea is to replace iPhoto as your photo database.


    There are a couple of advantages to doing this as I mentioned above - it works correctly with external editors, you can actually still share your entire iphoto library with iphoto users, et cetera.


    But I agree that it's galling to have to shell out money to work around a bug that's been in iPhoto for at least a year.


    (edited for grammar)

    Yes, letting editing aside, there is a major fail in the concept of Aperture for normal users.

    Once you export into Photoshop or other third party program for editing, a copy will be saved in Aperture. But, not as in IPhoto as a Jpeg. Only Tiff, and this means uncompressed, so for edited pictures you will need 10x more space in your folder. Great concept- but only for Pro's who need optimum quality.


    In Aperture there is not even an option to choose "save as" jpeg back after editing.

    I have both programs and this is frustrating.

  • porkchop_d_clown Level 1 (5 points)

    Ah, I see what you're saying - for some reason I thought you were referring to the large size of PSDs.


    Yeah, the TIFF thing seems to be because pro photographers don't like the lossy compression of JPEG; they shoot in RAW and edit in TIFF.

  • mkmichaelmk Level 1 (0 points)

    Yes, that's it. And even in peeping at 300% at every pixel you won't notice a difference between a Tiff and a Jpeg coded at level 10-12. It's a marketing thing in many cases. And the possibility to rearrange white balance or get the out blown highlights back, has nothing to do with professional photographers. They think and plan their shootings and do not make such errors.

    I always thought the secret was never showing your mistakes to anyone.


    I do understand your point mkmichaelmk - the extra work for RAW and TIFF has never been worth it for me, and the way those guys go through hard disks! I know of pros who dedicate an external master HD and an external backup HD for each customer or project - plus cloud backup, because they're that paranoid.


    (I'm not a pro, myself, I thought about going pro 30 years ago, then decided I didn't have the talent for art photography nor the people skills for portraiture.)

  • rcha101 Level 1 (0 points)

    I have this problem. If I scroll left and right through my photos the photo displays correctly, however when I open it directly, it zooms right in and displays only about 1/4 of the photo.


    I have tried using Aperture and the problem persists.


    I have raised a case with Apple today and will see what happens.

  • Michael Heinz Level 1 (30 points)

    Maybe if we're lucky they'll announce an upgrade today.

  • Marion Dobbs Level 2 (175 points)

    I had used iPhoto 9 happily for years, but I recently bought a new Macbook Air, and iPhoto 11 came right along with it. Now I have the very same problem discussed here in detail. I am stunned and disappointed that this bug was never fixed. I was also using PE 10. If I read this thread correctly, purchasing PE 11 won't help at all. Right?
    What news of iPhoto 12? I don't like the sound of it and would hate to go from bad to worse.

  • Terence Devlin Level 10 (137,925 points)

    There's no such thing as "iPhoto 12".

  • Marion Dobbs Level 2 (175 points)

    It was supposed to be released this summer, or so rumor had it, and was supposed to be heavily influenced by iOS app. I just wondered if anyone had more current information.

  • Terence Devlin Level 10 (137,925 points)

    Rumour is just that - rumour. It means nothing. There is no more current information on updates or upgrades to iPhoto 11.

  • Marion Dobbs Level 2 (175 points)

    Let me be clear. I understand what a rumor is. Many rumors about Apple's intentions have come to pass. Many have not. I was merely asking if anyone had concrete information. I'm sorry if I did not express myself with sufficient clarity to get that across.

    As I am sure are aware, this is strictly a volenteer user to user forum and under the TOU speculation on Apple policies (which includes spreading rumors about product releases or new features) are forbidden


    I'm sure you carefully read them before agreeing to them when you signed up for this forum.



  • Jan Tuijp Level 1 (0 points)

    I just installed OS X Mavericks, and the last upgrade of i photo, but the problem of the incorrect size in i phot after editing with Photoshop remains. Does anyone elce already have a solution for this lasting problem?
