This is a topic that’s shown up here on this blog, on the flickr Aperture group as well as on the Apple boards, and it appears that, at least for one user, the source of the problem has been found.

The Problem

The problem has been people’s Aperture Libraries not showing up in iLife, Mail, etc—basically the Media Browser connection was broken. You can share your Aperture Library with the rest of your Mac by enabling Share previews with iLife and iWork in the Preferences:

As you may have heard, if you upgrade to both Aperture 3.1 and iLife ‘11, you gain all the exciting new slide show themes that Steve showed on stage for iPhoto ‘11—inside of Aperture! I’ve just installed mine, and there’s a load of new themes.

Here’s a complete list of Slideshow themes. Themes with the ** next to them are new… there’s six of ‘em!

I missed this one on the original review, and it’s a subtle but welcome improvement. The so-called “Choose an Aperture Library” dialog (yeah, I dug into the manual to see what Apple called it), which you can call up by holding down the Option key on launch, or by selecting the menu File > Switch to Library > Other/New…, has seen an overhaul.

If you use both Aperture 3 and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3, this is a script you can’t be without. It will automatically export a Master RAW file from Aperture, and open it directly in Lightroom.

This powerful AppleScript allows you to convert a non-critical Master file into another space-saving format, i.e. RAW to JPEG. If your Library is bloated with RAW files you don’t necessarily need but can’t bring yourself to throw away, this AppleScript is the compromise you’ve been looking for. Reclaim up to 80% of your storage!
