Why if I load some black&white on aperture, it autoatically tranforms then in colour photos? I'd like to load the black&white photos shooted with my D700


Aperture 3, Mac OS X (10.6.7)

    Aperture does not transform any image files on import. It stores the original files and renders versions, to display the original.

     

    Are you shooting raw, and have you set in-camera settings to turn your photos into Black&White? The raw-files do contain the original color images, and only the embedded jpeg will show your Black&White processing done in the camera. So when you import the raw to Aperture, you get the original image from the sensor, not the processing done in the camera - that is the purpose of importing raw. You will see the the embedded b&w jpeg for a short moment, while Aperture developes the raw.

     

    If you want to import images with in-camera processing, don't shoot raw, but jpeg. Then the file that Aperture imports, will have all your in-camera processing.
