    Upgrading from Aperture to Lightroom - missing images

    elizabethg30052081

      Hello!

       

      I'm looking for a replacement for Aperture and have heard great things about Lightroom.  I have 130GB of photos in Aperture.  They are split between my pre-Aperture photos which are all stored as .jpgs and referenced by Aperture and photos that I added after I started using Aperture.  The second group are all in the massive Aperture library file.  From within Aperture, I access both types of files the same way with seemingly no difference.  In fact, I'd forgotten the difference until this upgrade.

       

      I used the plugin to migrate my photos and everything within the Aperture library migrated without issue.  However, the reference files all had an error: 

       

      Failed to import /Aperture Library/<folder name>/<file name>.JPG. (Possible reasons include asset offline or unsupported asset type.)

       

      There were available (stored in the same location as the Aperture library and from everything I read, .JPG is a supported file type!  :-)

       

      Any thoughts?  Should I just try again?  Would I need to start over (delete what was already imported) or can I try for an incremental update?

       

      I've tried to find answers on both the Adobe and Mac forums, but no luck. Any insight is much appreciated!

          This just happened to me, too.  I decided to split the aperture library into years, and import them one by one.  2015, a partial year, worked well, but 2014 was a disaster.  Many files were omitted. 

           

          The log (in Documents, on my Mac) includes about 1200 entries such as
