Using managed libraries or the referenced file approach

So we need to talk about where our master files are going to be stored when we import them into the Aperture library. So what do I mean by master files? Well, those are the actual pictures that your camera has captured. So when I take this picture, whether it's a RAW or a JPEG, the camera creates the master file. And what Aperture does when I want to work with one of these shots is that it reads that original master file.

Let's say that I want to do some image editing on this file, right here, and I go to Adjustments and I want to make some sort of change, I want to maybe change the color temperature a little bit, cool it off, let's say. So what Aperture just did was it read my original file and then it noted what change I made, and then it generated a new preview. That's what I'm looking at. Those previews are what are shared with the other applications and so forth.

So it's a master file and preview and the preview is based upon the master file plus whatever change...
