Revel: Can't upload from iPhoto and Aperture

Downloaded Carousel today. Can't import from either iPhoto or Aperture. When I hit the + button, and look for 'Photos' in the menu on the left, iPhoto and Aperture are like 'not visible at full strength', indicating that they are not selectable.



I have the very last versions of both programs (see pics):





Any idea what could be wrong??

Thanks!

Thanks for the quick response Champ :-) And yes, I do see the media listed, just took a screenshot of PART of the window, cause of privacy reasons.

The dragging and dropping from iPhoto and Aperture works. In Aperture I will probably have to change the settings to export the original quality, can look into that.

But another more important thing: Carousel doesn't seem to import RAW/NEF files. Is that normal? On the Carousel promo film I see people with DLSR cameras taking pictures...

Is there some place where I could see what file formats are supported or not??

Thanks a lot Champ :-) :-)

Only JPG is supported at this time, and you can call me Rob :)

Haha, I thought it was a bit strange already to be called 'Champ'. But have seen stranger names :-) :-)...

But: any idea of other file formats are on the agenda?

Haha, thought it was a bit strange already to be called 'Champ', but had never seen a badge like that before, only the green ones with actual names; get the whole idea now :-) :-) :-)!!

And besides: still strange that the 'normal' way to import doesn't work, isn't it...?

Yes. So, if you see Media on the left and Photos under that, what happens when you click Photos?

AHA! Wait, so: I did it wrong all the time. Didn't see that 'media' icon. Thought I had to go through the 'Pictures' folder.

Completely understand it now, and it works, thanks a bunch ROB :-)!

i continue to have problem importing Aperture database into Carousel.
I've select all the photo in Aperture from within Carousel +
After one night of importing i see in the morning the message in attach.
My database is really more larger than that, also considering duplicates.
Now the status in Carousel saw Uploading Originals 2903, what means ?
That new 2903 photo in addition to 5745 will be added ???
I'm totally confused and frustrated ...

Why don't you just start over Face? Make a second Carousel, delete the first one, and try again...

i've created at least 5 Carousel in these past 3 days.
I'm exausted ...
It's obvious that actually Carousel is too young to be used ....
Don't take me wrong, i love the idea, but it's really too 'acerb' for now.

Haha, I can understand... But it could be your Aperture too, couldn't it? Personally I don't think I will use carousel either, but just because you can only sort on date, not on subject, which put your carefully selected folders all over the place! Maybe in a future version, when I can use my Aperture Library as it IS. But I guess Apple will come with something in iCloud too at some point...

Hi Toby, i'm strongly hope that Apple will improve some iCloud functionality to Aperture/iPhoto soon.
The actual streaming photo feature introduced with iCloud/iOS5 works like a charm ...
