One of the advantages to really understanding how libraries appear both in…Aperture and iPhoto is that if you're sharing a Library, let's say you're in a…family environment and you want to hide some photos.…Let's say that you're working on a birthday card for your wife and you're…working on those pictures and you don't want her to see it when she's working in…one application or the other.…So, we'll start by hiding a photo in iPhoto that you can't see in Aperture, and…then we'll work the other way too.…
Now, the way that you do this is that if you go into iPhoto here and you click…on an image, and you go to Photos then you go to Hide Photo there.…It puts a little X on it, and you can actually remove this from view right here…in iPhoto by unchecking Hidden Photos under View.…Okay, it's still there.…You can always bring it back.…But we have added the Hidden tag to it.…So now, what we're going to do is we're going to go ahead and close iPhoto.…
