Export RAW file from iPhoto to Aperture

Advertisement

I want to start using Aperture 2 for my photo editing, so I need to import a number of RAW photos that are currently stored in iPhoto. This seems like it should be a simple enough process, but the different methods I have attempted have only resulted in a JPG version of the photo being imported.
I have spent quite a bit of time perusing previous posts and haven't been able to find an answer, so any help or direction would be greatly appreciated!

I don't think there is any reason to export the photos from iPhoto first. Aperture can browse the iPhoto library and will allow you to drag and drop the original files.
In Aperture:
1. Pull down File > Show iPhoto Browser.
2. Find the photos you want, highlight them by Shift+clicking several in a row or Command+clicking discontinuous photos. Make sure the extension on the file corresponds to the type of RAW file your camera shoots (.CR2 for Canon, .NEF for Nikon, etc).
3. Drag and drop the selected files to the Library icon in the Projects list. This will create a new project called "Untitled Project" that contains your photos.
