After Updates, iPhoto and Aperture Now Share Libraries Natively
After their update today, Apple's two photography applications -- iPhoto and Aperture -- can now share libraries with no import or export required. The Aperture update notes say that "Faces, Places, slideshows, albums and web sharing work across both applications". Users of both apps will no doubt be pleased.
Since the apps were introduced, self-contained photo libraries had to be exported and imported to move photo sets between them -- a lengthy process, particularly in libraries with tens of thousands of photos.
