When iView was sold to Microsoft I made the jump to Aperture, which at the time I thought was a wonderful idea:
- I'm on a Mac, I might as well use Apple products.
- Historically speaking, I had had nothing but bad results with Microsoft products.
- Aperture was the latest and greatest.
Well, it's been a while now. Aperture 3 doesn't even work on my platform anymore (Quad G5 that I purchased at the time only for Aperture 2), and Aperture 2 has become dog-slow with the number of images in my growing catalogue. When I heard that PhaseOne bought Expression Media I decided to make the jump back. I'm currently trying out EM2 in demo mode (30 day demo) and it's like seeing an old friend -- I'm already happy with the return of the former interface, and the speed compared to Aperture 2.
However, having worked in Aperture for a few years all of my catalogs and albums are in that application. Is there any way to import the catalog from Aperture into EM2? Or am I stuck redoing everything?
