Apple Aperture - Importing Digital Photographs
If you are using Aperture for the first time, you will probably want to import all the photos on your hard disk. This can take a lot of time, but only needs to be done once. You will copy photos from a flash memory card much more often. The decisive factors here are the speed of the memory card and the card reader. The Apple MacBook Pro now has a FireWire800 connection, which means that photos can be copied in no time flat with the new Extreme card reader from SanDisk and the Extreme IV memory card. Before importing the photos you must indicate which project they belong to. Aperture works on the basis of projects and this does not always fit in with the photographer's habits. A news photographer is not really affected by this, but a studio photographer is. While importing, you must also indicate where the photos will be saved. This can be in Aperture's library, or on a separate hard disk or DVD. In the latter case, Aperture will make a reference to it in the library, together with an adjustable JPEG preview. If you are saving the photos in the library, make sure that the disk has enough space as RAW files take up a lot of space.
