Let's take a quick look at Smart Albums because they behave a little differently in Aperture and iPhoto. For example, right here, I have a library that was created in iPhoto and a Smart Album that was created in iPhoto, the 3 Stars or More. Now it displays properly in Aperture, that part is no problem. However, if I go to edit it by clicking on the Edit button, I'll get a message that says, I can't edit it here. You created it in iPhoto, the Smart Album has to be edited in iPhoto.
So, there's that note. So now, let's go ahead and quit Aperture. Now, let's open Aperture Library in iPhoto. Okay, here we go. So, we have a Smart Album here, the Flagged images. Now, I created this in Aperture. If I right click on the Smart Album and I go Edit Smart Album, this is the way you do this in iPhoto. Oh, dear, what a surprise.
I get a message that says this Smart Album cannot be edited in iPhoto because I created it in Aperture. However, I can view its contents. So, if you get one of these messages, then all it's really telling you is that hey, you created this Smart Album in the other application. Go back to that application, do your editing, and then you can open it wherever you want and you'll still get the results.
