    This is the correct one, right?

    36,525 photos, no RAW, all JPEG.

    WIll report on the setting change.

    I ordered a SSD from OWC to use as a boot/Aperture drive, and intend to do a clean Mountain Lion Install on it, and load apps one by one, as needed -- trying to clean out 4.5 years worth of cruft (more, really since the Mac was originally setup via Firewire from an older Mac.)

    That's the preference! Let me know how it goes.

    So after installing the PCIe SSD, and moving the photo library on it, Aperture might as well be a completely different program. It flies, as does everything else. Can't tell if the preference change made a difference as it and the new drive happened at the same time.

    If you have a Mac running slow, stick a good SSD in it, it's like having a new machine. No wonder the new Mac Pro will be SSD only.

    Well that's just cheating :)The SSD for us has to wait for the next Mac upgrade (from current iMac).

    I was wondering where this thread had gone off to :)Not long ago, I was wondering if I should buy aperture or Lightroom. Glad I procrastinated on buying aperture. Still haven't gotten Lightroom yet, though. I'm impatient to get the new version app, Photos.

    At least they promised to make it Yosemite compatible. I am not into photography like I use to be so hopefully the Photos app will be adequate. For those hoping for an Aperture update, that has to smart a bit.

    I'm definitely not happy. I guess I'll have to start moving towards Lightroom (which I have, as part of the Adobe Photoshop/Lightroom rental package) and I haven't invested the Tim in seriously learning to use it. With Aperture a I hit the ground running, for whatever reason I didn't find Lightroom anywhere near as intuitive
