How are you able to copy photos from your Aperture/iPhoto library to your iPod, using iTunes?

    Hi there, dear iPod Classic community,

    I'm the proud user of an iPod Video, also known as 5.5G (which, by the way, I modded to have one 128 GB SDXC card instead of the default 30 GB HDD).

    The thing is that I wan't to copy my photo library from my Mac to my iPod, as I suppose it was perfectly possible until a few years ago, using iPhoto and iTunes.

    Now I'm running the latest release of Yosemite and iTunes, but there doesn't seem to be an option to copy my photos from Aperture to my iPod. Yes, I know that Apple moved from iPhoto and Aperture to Photos, however I haven't migrated yet and actually don't plan to in the short term, as I already tried a few weeks ago and it was just a mess (corrupted files, etc.).

    Anyway. Is there an easy way of copying my Aperture or iPhoto library to my iPod? Or am I really forced to use that terrible new Photos app?

    Thanks!

    So with the iPod connected; when in iTunes you click on the iPod icon; then click on Photos; under Sync Photos there's not an option to "Copy photos from: iPhoto"?

    Nope, only Photos and Choose a Folder. Also consider there's no iPhoto in Yosemite.

    Then that's the problem. You don't have it installed.

    I thought iTunes supported Aperture...

    I have Yosemite 10.10.5, Photos, iPhoto 9.6.1, Aperture 3.6, and the latest iTunes (12.3.0.44). The drop-down list in iTunes > "Sync Photos from" includes all of those, plus Choose Folder... and Pictures.

    I only see Photos, Choose a Folder and now iPhoto. Shouldn't Aperture be there too?

    It ought to be. Is Aperture open (though it shouldn't have to be)?

    Aperture doesn't appear in iTunes, even both of them being opened at the same time. Weird, huh?
