    Hi, I am new to macs and was hoping for some help with a strategy to organize my pictures. I shoot raw+jpg so I have two of each picture. Currently everything is in iPhoto. If I was to go through and filter out all of the RAW's and delete them, they would be gone correct? I would prefer to keep them as a file and open them later with aperature for editing.

    Is there a streamlined way to do this?

    As far as editing -- in iPhoto preferences, set Aperture as your external editor. Then when you open a photo for editing, Aperture will o pen, you can edit, and when you save, it will go right back where it belongs in the iPhoto Library.

    I recently migrated from iPhoto to Aperture. Aperture does everything iPhoto can do and much more. In short, Aperture is upgraded iPhotos. Same organization structure, faces, places, advanced slideshows + editing in one! Cant beat it. Im loving it even though Im still getting used to it.
    Good luck:)
