I've now (somewhat) successfully imported my OLD Aperture library into a NEW Aperture library on my 240 GB SSD on my laptop. (Joseph's magic trick.)
My referenced iPhoto library exists on an internal 2nd hard drive.
Finder says iPhoto Library is 141 GB on disk. I only have 92 GB free on my SSD. Masters folder inside iPhoto package is 96 GB on disk.
Is there a way for me to use Consolidate Masters, or something like that, to effectively recapture the 49 GB of bloat in the iPhoto library package, and keep the 92 GB of iPhoto master images on that same drive and referenced in new Aperture library?
Or do I need to move Aperture library to internal 2nd hard drive and use Consolidate Masters?
Ultimate goal is to have Aperture library file on SSD for speed, and I suppose just reference images off of 2nd internal HD. I don't see a need to maintain a separate iPhoto library any longer. Any reason to keep it?
Make sense? What would you do if you were me? How would you do it? Thanks for the help!
