    When I purchased Aperture I'd hoped it would store three copies of each photo; the original untouched RAW and a Photoshopped TIFF and JPEG, but 70mb+ TIFF files appear to be taking their toll. I will probably store them in another app, leaving the RAW and JPEG in Aperture.

    Anyway, to cut to the question.

    I send a 16 bit TIFF to CS2 directly from Aperture using the 'External Image Editor' option. When I've done all of the necessary work in CS2, save the 16bit TIFF, and then convert to 8 bit and 'Save As' to JPEG.

    Aperture appears to be able to automatically retrieve a TIFF file, but not a JPEG.

    Does anybody have any ideas of a way round this?

    Currently, I'm saving JPEG's to my desktop, then re-importing into Aperture. I hoping it doesn't need to be quite so long winded :)
