I'm giving Aperture 2 a try and it seems alright at the moment. One thing that's bugging me is when you import though. When I import into Lightroom I import by date being 2008-03-03 for example. Lightroom picks up the date of the photos taken and imports them accordingly. Also, I tag groups of pics I take with a batch tag on import to save me from doing it later on. Is there any way to replicate this in Aperture? I'm more so concerned about the way to organise things as I have 14k+ photos organised in that date format and if I decide to stick with Aperture for now I'd like it to be able to write like that too. I already know that I can import using a custom folder name but that would require be to manually type in the date of each group of shots and I don't always have pics from the same day on my card.
