Re: Correction: Aperture only 'misplaced' the images

I only noticed now that all the missing images were actually inside an 'Untitled' project. So, Aperture did not completely loose track of the images, it just lost track which project they belonged to.

Do you rename the original files on import? If you do you could simply have searched the library for them (given that you would have a known file name or pattern), correct? I guess you could search on file name either way.

My workflow includes renaming every file, YYYYMMDD_Event_Name.filetype. That way it's easy to filter and search on file names.

If you install Picasa it will index all images on your disk, even if they are inside a iPhoto/Aperture Library. Once Picasa has them indexed you can search, browse and filter by file name. Indexing can take a long time as it will index all images, Originals, Previews, Face thumbnails etc.
