50.000 RAW Images - into one Library or more??

Advertisement

Hi,
I wonder if it makes sense to have more AP Libraries?
Right now we have i.E. one Library for all our scans (10000) - this Library has several Projects (scan 1-2000, scan 2001-4000 etc)
One Library got all Europe Pictures (Projects are Italy, Germany, France etc.)
Does it make sense only to have ONE SUPERLARGE Library? or does it makes sense to have more?? (which maes it more difficult to search for Images because we have to open more Libaries to find it sometimes??
thanks for your opinion

I have over 2 TB of NEF RAW photos in 4 libraries. I tried having them all in one and it was WAY too slow. My libraries are set up in the 4 main categories I shoot. Each library has over 30 projects and the largest library has over 200 projects.
The only thing I don’t like is to have to go to properties and change the library pointer, close Aperture and then reopen it to change from one library to the other.
