To those of you who work with Apples Aperture, may be it is the time to resize your library. I did that yesterday.

After one year in use of Aperture my library had a size of 15.26 GB with 13.000 pics in it (only assignments to the original files on an external HDD). My workstation is an MacBook Pro with a 80 gig HDD. So I resized the previewpictures to 1440*1400 with JPG-quality 4 and build a new library.

Easier that than done - it took 7 hours to do that, but after all the library is 50% smaler than before. That´s awesome ...
