Did You Know… You Can Move and Rename Your Photo Stream Projects
Did you know that you can move and even rename your Photo Stream projects, and Aperture will still find them and continue to automatically import the photos?
Set the Preferences
If you have your Preferences set to automatically import your Photo Stream photos…
Then the photos are automatically imported into a project named “Month year Photo Stream”, like this:
Aperture will create a new Project every month, like the one above, named like “Apr 2012 Photo Stream”. The problem is if you sort by name, then all the “Apr” Projects are sorted together, and also April will come before January. Odd.
Set your own structure
However you can not only move the Photo Stream Projects wherever you like, but you can even rename them — and Aperture will continue to import into the appropriate Project! On my own system, I’ve created a Photo Stream folder, and then I rename the project in a “YYYY-MM Photo Stream” format, like this:
Even with this new name, new photos will continue to move there automatically. It doesn’t matter when you rename the project; I just do it whenever I notice that a new one has been created (so, once a month).
