Good Evening... I appreciate any feedback any of you can give me! What I am looking to do is import my photo library from my airport time capsule backup of my old MBP into aperture on my new MBPr. This would be over my home network. One question I have is, I started with iphoto on the old MBP, merged libraries when I moved to aperture, and used both apps frequently. The library on the time machine is a iphoto library. - Will this be a problem going into straight aperture, with no iphoto on my laptop? and then.... how do I do that! - I have tried to research this but have not come across the iphoto library going into aperture... Thank you!
The restore button should become active, as asoon as you select an item to be restored.
Was your iPhoto library in your Pictures folder? To restore, open the folder where your library should have been in the Finder, before you enter Time Machine. This way, the folder will show directly when you enter the Time Tunnel.
Since the backup is from another mac, use "Browse other Backup Disks" option, see this help text by the Great Pondini:
Dive back in time, until you see your iPhoto library, and select the library. Then opt to restore to a different location, see: http://pondini.org/TM/15.html
