I'm running 10.6, and as such I'm running iPhoto 2009 (v8.1.2) and Aperture v3.2.4. I've imported my iPhoto library using the "Import->Iphoto Library" command into a newly created, blank Aperture library. It runs smoothly, but after the import is completed none of the photos have their keywords. There's maybe 2000 photos so I am not relishing the idea of loading these keywords a second time.
I've only got keywords for my family members, i.e. John, Rachel, Cora, etc. Do I have to create these keywords first in Aperture before doing the import?
