I went through this section but unfortunately I am still not sure what to do.
1) Copy the files (using the Finder or whatever)
What files? The old drive (Thunder2) is gone and the files were restored onto a new drive (Thunder3). Do you still have to have the old drive?
2) Select the folder in RAW Power that has the original copies
I assume this means the File Browser in Raw Power
3) Pick File > Reconnect Files
I decided to delete the Photos Library and reimport the files to Photos. The Library was corrupt anyway after trying to open an Aperture Library
Photos is now working.
However all of the edits I did in Raw Power are not showing up. The sidecar files are still in the Raw Power folder.
Is there a way to reconnect Raw Power sidecar files to the same file that was in olddrive/files to newdrive/files?
Can the file name be displayed in Edit mode, please.
I use actions in Photoshop to replace the background, basically Select Subject and then Replace Unselected with 230,230,230 or whatever the customer specifies.
So once I have selected the images to go to the customer I put the original JPG files in a folder and use the Batch process in Photoshop to do them all at once, then put them back in the original folder.
Then I go back to the catalogue (Aperture, Photos, Raw Power) and hope to see them ready to go.
Aperture detects the original has changed and starts processing by itself and they come up as you scroll through them. Photos and Raw power don’t seem to detect the change.
The work around at the moment is to create a Preset that changes to the Clarity from 0 to 0.1 and then they all re-render.
I think to use an external edit process on each would be too slow and just create an unwanted extra file.
Thanks for the prompt response Nik.
In regard to point 4, what I do with a shoot of several hundred images for a customer is import full size JPG into Photos, do some minor format changes and export the proofs to the customer to select the required images. Once he has made the selections I then edit the selected JPG images in Photoshop, generally to clean the background and clone out unwanted objects.
When I go back to Photos or Raw Power the image has not changed. If the preview is referenced to the original file (which has changed), why does it not see the changes? In Aperture it just started “Processing” and popped up new after a period of time.
I was able to force it to change though by making a very slight edit and saving.
