I’ve created another open-source project, which helps you fix the collection names created by Lightroom when you import from Aperture.
It’s a pretty basic script, although it took a while to figure out all the hoops to jump through. Hopefully this will help someone else!
After using Adobe’s Aperture importer, you’ll find all your Aperture projects have become Collection Sets in Lightroom, with a collection called ‘Project Photos’.
Fair enough… but then when you sync them all to Lightroom Mobile, all the collections you see on your iPhone/iPad are called ‘Project Photos’. Hardly helpful!
So, this script fixes it.
- Every collection called ‘Project Photos’ is renamed using its parent collection set
- Projects imported from Aperture that had no sub-albums are turned into a simple collection, rather than a collection set with one child collection.
Feel free to tweak the script to behave differently!
