When I download images from my CF card, they don't show up anywhere in my projects, They only show up in the last download folder.

My settings for import are Destination: New Project, Shore files: Aperture library, Rename files: none, No effect presets, no file types are checked, and no backup Location .

How do I get my new images into a new project, and why aren't automatically creating a new project?

I have an Imac running Mtn Lion, and the latest version of Aperture.


Aperture 3, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    It is impossible, that they are not in a project, if they are showing in your library's "recent import".

     

    Check, if filters are set - clear the search fields in the Library Inspector panel and Browser, if you do not see the project. The search fields should be showing "All items" or "Show All", not "Favorite items" or similar.

    I have found my images. but they are in various projects. at the bottom of my import dialog says import to various projects. How do I change it to a new project.

    If you only want one project (on your next import), disable "split into projects".

     

    To merge your recent import into one single project, select all images in the "Last Import" album and use the command "File > New > Project" from the "File" menu.

     

    Then enable the option "Move selected Items to new project". That will merge all images into a new project. Then delete the old, now empty projects.

    Aperture will not import into new projects. When I click import, the dialog says importing to new project. A new project is not created. I have 9 projects which appear to have every image I've ever imported (over 8000). I have other projects, Every new image goes to Name 1.0 ,Name 1.0 1,Name 1.0 2, Name 1.0 3,Etc. Each of these files have all of my images on them, even ones that have prevously been successfully imported into their new projects.

    This is really weird. Either your current Aperture library needs fixing or you are having a problem with broken presets and preferences.

    Could you please make a test and see, if you are having the same result, when you are importing into a new test library? When in Aperture , go to the "File" menu and use the command "File > Switch to library > Other/New". Now try importing into your library. Do you see the same wrong project names?
