Hey everybody. I've been using Aperture 2 for a while now, but never really "committed" to adding a lot of metadata to my photographs because of my confusion over the structure of the application itself. I recently upgraded to Aperture 3, and I really like some of the new features (Faces, and especially Places). I'm ready to start to add my metadata, except...I'm confused about how I should be adding my photographs, and I hope some of you could help. Correct me if I'm wrong, or making any crazy mistakes. In Aperture, every photograph must be added to a project to be displayed and edited, yes? I started one project for each of my former cameras. I had a few old point & shoots and a couple DSLRs, each with a couple thousand photographs probably. I don't use any of those anymore. My current body, D700, has all its photographs in one project. I expect to be using this body for the foreseeable future. My problem is, the Faces feature does not appear to work across projects. The faces Aperture recognizes from my D300 project are unrecognizable to Aperture in the D700 project. Quite annoying. I suppose my real question is: Should I be organizing my photographs in this fashion? It is my understanding that some people use projects as a workspace for specific shoots. They might have many hundreds of projects in their Aperture library. That seems very cluttered to me. The one thing I liked about Lightroom is you could just add your photos to the library and browse by camera model. It seems I am trying to replicate that here with limited success. I would like to add that each camera has its own folder on my hard drive. None of the photographs are in subfolders. If I add my photographs to a folder, they still must be within a project (inside that folder) to edit them in any way, correct? I'd appreciate any help or advice anyone can give. Thanks!
