I'm trying to clean up after importing my Aperture library into Lightroom. One big issue: while I was able to import full-size JPEGs for the adjustments I'd done to my masters in Aperture, those JPEGs didn't end up in the collections to which their masters belong.
So for instance, say I have a photo named IMG_1234.CR2 that I adjusted in Aperture and put in a "Vacation" collection. In Lightroom, IMG_1234.CR2 (the master) is in both Vacation and "Adjusted in Aperture." I also have a photo named IMG_1234_Aperture_preview.JPG with my adjustments in Adjusted in Aperture, but it's not in Vacation.
So what I need to do is this:
I could probably do this by hand in an hour or two, but wondered if there's an automated way to do it (or an easy way to write a script that would).
Smart collections.... They're like Aperture smart albums, though not as good. So you'll have one line that says Filename / Contains/Aperture_preview and another that targets the originals, however you identify them.
One little tip is that you can nest criteria - press Option as well as + when adding a new criterion.
I think that gets me partway there — but doesn't actually perform the necessary action. The originals aren't all in the same collection; there are maybe 800 of them scattered across a number of different collections. So for each, I need to find its collections and then apply those same collections to the corresponding preview.
