  • The common idiom is Obj *foo = [Foo alloc] init];  New is rarely used in modern obj-c programs.
  • The article says: In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if we got a new Aperture that sits on top of Photos when it appears. It might be wishful thinking on my part but that sums up my expectations, ...
  • There is a checkbox as part of the import window that let's you select to re-import duplicates or not. If you did not ask aperture to import dups it wont. I don't think there is anything more than ...
  • They are shown like that because the file permissions are set to readable, writeable, AND EXECUTABE! You probably copied them from a DOS FAT formated memory card.  If you remove the executable ...
  • I see something similar when syncing to Smugmug. If I sync to a particular album (called a gallery in Smugmug) it not only uploads that image, but reads the metadata on every image in the gallery ...
  • It only works with cameras that put the info in image metadata.  Many Canon cameras don't do that.  You will not find shutter count in any image taken with my 7D, for example.  You have to get the ...
  • Time machine, at least when writing to a dedicated external disk, does not use a sparse bundle.   Where did you get the idea that it did? I have browsed the time machine data using finder many, ...
  • If you are using the apple mail.app have you tried the connection doctor? I think it is under the windows menu tab (I'm not at my Mac right now). It will try to make connections to your mail ...
  • .mov is a container.  The container can hold many types of video.  How hard or easy it is to edit depends upon the video format inside the container. Some video formats can be edited with OK ...
  • Time.  As noted in other comments some files have a built in preview.  The finder will use that if it can. If not the finder will have to build a preview and that is apparently done in some ...
  • Nice shot of nice bike.  But it's not really retro ;)  this is retro... Image sot with my X100
  • For some it's a style thing.  Others prefer the simplicity of a device that doesn't require eleventy-seven button presses and an on screen menu to change function.  My preference was for a ...
  • I see comments like this often and don't understand it at all.  If Aperture does what you need, why change?  If it doesn't do what you need why wait?  If I need a feature that is not available ...
  • I read that as your backups are on the HD in your machine.  Yes?  If so they are not backups, merely copies.  A backup will be on an external drive that you can attach to any machine to get going ...
  • Wrong analogy.  What came out of the camera needed chemical processing.  There could be variations.  Those variations could and did effect the resulting slide, sometimes for the better, sometimes ...
  • I understand bring able to only afford one.   Note that in my personal example I have one system -- Canon -- and an X100.  The X100 is not a system camera.  However, I often read here about folks ...
  • I don't understand the all-or-nothing approach that many take.  What's wrong with carrying BOTH Canon and Fuji cameras?  Is there some rule I'm not aware of that forbids hardware from different ...
  • It is not wrong. Import does NOT mean "copy originals into aperture library" as you seem to think it means.  Under aperture you must import an image to add it an aperture library, even in ...
  • They should update automatically. That is one of the annoying things about google apps. If you still have the original link that you used to download the product it will still work, but get you ...
  • It was a problem with the NIK plug ins. Google released an update a short while ago that fixed the issue.  Check the date on your plug ins. The new version has a Dec date, I believe.   I'm not at ...
