So I'm trying out Aperture again.

I keep my images backed up on cds and dvds.

Is there a way to import a whole cd/dvd into Aperture? I have the images on cd organized into folders. Is there some way to select the whole cd to be imported? Right now it only allows me to go folder by folder by folder, and I'd rather do the whole cd as a new project.

Dragging the cd into Aperture copies the thing onto the hard drive and is not what I'm trying to accomplish.

Thanks!

At a glance, I don't think you can. I think it only allows you to import if there are images in the folder selected, not two or three folders below that.

Try searching (or spotlighting) for JPEGs (or CR2s) on the CD, then selecting all of them, then dragging into Aperture.

Failing that, write a recursive Automator or Applescript script.
