TO IMPORT ENTIRE IPHOTO LIBRARY

Step One
Open Aperture by selecting its icon in the dock or double clicking its icon in the Applications folder.


Step Two
Select File : Import : iPhoto Library... from Aperture's menu.


Step Three
The import window will appear and should have the iPhoto library already selected. If not, then navigate to the location of the iPhoto.


If you would like to leave the photos in the iPhoto library without copying them over to Aperture then select In their current location from the Store Files dropdown. Otherwise leave it as In the Aperture Library.


Click Choose to start the import.

A popup window will appear showing the status of the import.

Once the import is complete you will be able to access your iPhoto Events etc from the Projects Pane to the left side of the Aperture window.

Thanks very much for that. I was stressing out about how to import new Events that were in my iPhoto library into Aperture. I already had the majority of my library in there so I didn\'t want to import the whole thing again.
