    I started using Aperture last month as my primary post-production/organization tool. Aperture, I note, can read albums from iPhoto. But if I want to display my photos on my Apple TV, do I have to reimport them back into iPhoto after I've imported them into Aperture? What do you think would be the best way to handle this?

    AppleTV can see your albums in Aperture just like it does with iPhoto

    Thanks for the info. That is really good to know. Does it work like iPhoto ? How about the slideshows ?

    The following is from the Apple support web site

    The last line is the key. It looks like ATV talks to iTunes and it's iTunes that talks to either Aperture or IPhoto so the ATV does not even have to "know" if the photos came from iPhoto, Aperture or whatever.

    The Apple support web site is the best place to go for questions like these. Manuals are downloadable in PDF and there is a search box too.
