Gee, it's about a million years since I used Aperture, so my memory is more or less nil.

Do you have a version of Photoshop on your computer?

I've been googling this like crazy, and I can't find out where on your hard drive Aperture has put your photos.  This is so damn frustrating.

Can you do this for me?

for my laptop i have saved them in a folder on a hard drive, the whole aperture library. a guy from apple did it for me. i also have another library on my desktop but when i want to open a photo thats how i do it. i have saved some in my pictures and i can open them in bridge from there. just wasnt sure how to save around 60,000 photos and not lose the edits. i need a lunch break and brain break. back soon and thanks for any help you can give me

For now (the next couple of months at least) I don't want you to worry about all your old photos.  They can stay in Aperture.

What we must concentrate on at the moment are the new photos you shoot.  Establish your new Bridge workflow with those.

For heaven's sake stop saving photos in folders on your desktop!  That's really bad for Macs.
