Tips for Importing RAW+JPEG when Shooting on Separate Cards

I realize this is a tip that will be useful to very few of you, but I came across it today and thought I’d share. And even if you don’t have a camera that holds multiples cards, you may find some of the thinking here interesting.

A small selection of highest-end dSLRs have multiple camera card slots. The older Canon 1D series have a CF+SD card slot combo, the latest 1Dx has dual CF slots, and the top-end Nikons feature two CF slots. I suspect there are other dual-slot cameras out there, too. There’s lots of ways to use those two slots, but what I’ve always done on my 1Ds Mk III is shoot RAW to the CF and a JPEG (sometimes full size, sometimes smaller, depending on the need) to the SD card. For example if I’m using the SD card for JPEG backup, then probably I’ll set the camera to capture full-size JPEGs.

ApertureExpert Live Training Session 023: Multiple Mac Workflow

Multiple Mac Workflow
This is a topic that keeps coming up in the forums, so I finally decided to record a video on it. The process really is straight forward, but as always the video is full of little tips to help you get the most out of the experience. What I covered here is two things:

•• How to add photos to a new Library on a portable Mac, then merge that Library into your main Library
•• How to take projects from your main Library on the road with you for further editing — either full editing, or just metadata editing.

And in both cases, I discuss how to handle Managed and Referenced libraries. Cool!

Show and Hide “Sort & Filter Controls” in the Aperture Browser

This is one of those “everyone know’s it’s there” tips… until you don’t!

For a while I had noticed that the ability to filter by star ratings, or anything else, as well as the ability to toggle between Filmstrip, Grid and List view, were missing from Aperture whenever I was in Split View view. Since I know most of the keyboard shortcuts for this, I never put too much thought into it. On the rare occasions when I needed something I couldn’t use a shortcut for, I’d switch to Browser view to get to the commands.
