I would like to import my Aperture library to Capture One.
Importing the Aperture library is only supported by Capture One for macOS as Aperture is the macOS-only application created by Apple. Consider that Aperture Library has to be updated to Aperture 3.5.1.
As Aperture Library is a catalog, you have to first create a new catalog in Capture One. It is not possible to import Aperture Library to a session.
Then go to the main menu and select File -> Import Catalog -> Aperture Library.
Below is a list of what is supported
- Aperture Project -> Capture One Project
- Aperture Folder -> Capture One Group
- Aperture Album -> Capture One Album
- Any Aperture Projects which directly contain images have a generic sub-album created in CO to contain the images.
- Smart Albums, Books, Light Tables, Slideshows, Web Journals, and Web Pages are not imported.
- Crop (if not Straightened)
- Black & White
- Enhance/Definition -> Capture One Clarity
- Enhance/Saturation -> Capture One Saturation
- Exposure/Exposure -> Capture One Exposure
- Exposure/Brightness -> Capture One Brightness
- Highlights & Shadows (Mid Contrast ignored)
Everything else is ignored.
- Star Rating
- Color Label (note: Ap Grey becomes Capture One Purple)
- Applied Keywords (flat, not hierarchical)
