    Yeah but I meant the Library itself - the database file. It defaults to the Pictures folder but as it can get quite big I'd rather keep it on my external drive along with my photos.

    I'll have a look soon as I get home. What if you undo the initial crop?

    deem, Aperture stores crop data with each image. If you want to edit the crop data (i.e. crop it more than once) you just go back to the crop dialogue and change the crop values. (Select the image in question then reselect the crop tool, or press 'C'.)

    To answer my own post, no, Aperture forces you to keep the Library file in the Picture folder on your Home directory. :(

    Which is a bummer as the database gets HUGE, even if you're just referencing your images stored externally. For example, I've just added one year's worth of photos to my Aperture library (about 6,000 files, just under 30 gigs) and the Aperture database is already 6 gigs!

    That's not too bad tbh. I took 900 on my 4-day trip to NY alone.

    I was wrong it's actually two years, but even so, I don't think that's too excessive! I haven't got round to deleting the one's I've marked for deletion... :/

    *bump*

    Anybody out there use Aperture 3?

    I'm considering it as an upgrade from iPhoto, but I'm concerned about the number of reports of crashes, memory leaks etc.

    I had a trial version for 30 days. Like you I wanted to move up from iPhoto and it was an easy transition. But then I found that I really don't have the time to fiddle so I went back to iPhoto.

    Maybe it was Aperture 2. It had some new brush feature that was really nice. My only problem was that it fucked up my Flickr account. I think it wants 100% controll over the flickr files and I kept interrupting it. So images lost their names or groups etc.

    I use it and think it's quite good.

    CS4 these days and love it.

    Doubt I'll ever upgrade, or at least not for a long time.
