Viewer Not Updating After Going to an External Editor or Plug-in? Try This…
There’s an outstanding issue with Aperture that seems to come and go, but I’ve seen multiple reports on it since the 3.2.3 update so it appears to be back with a vengeance. The problem is when you use an external editor (i.e. Photoshop) or even a plug-in (i.e. Nik’s plugins) and round-trip back to Aperture, the thumbnail itself updates to reflect the changes you’ve made, but the image in the Viewer does not (that’s the big version of the photo you’re looking at).
Sometimes simply resizing the viewer makes it redraw correctly, but I’ve also seen that work, only to see the image revert again when the viewer goes back to the original size.
Clearing caches and rebuilding libraries doesn’t help, either.
So what works?
The latest theory is to simply enable then disable any adjustment brick. That’s it.
Try it out if you see the problem on your system and please report back here in the comments.
