comment How do Aperture stacks work in the Photos app?
So: Aperture stacks are unstacked and no relationship is preserved?

comment Where did my Aperture library go after migrating to Photos?
@bmike: Could it be because I have iCloud enabled, so that the photos aren't technically "on my machine" any more (and thus, neither library really has anything in it locally) but rather in the cloud and synced locally in client apps that have iCloud enabled?(Big report — hahahah!)

comment What does “referenced file offline” mean in Photos?
Useful, except what you mean is "could have been done in on go". There was no warning to do this before migration, and there should have been.

comment Are the photos I share using the Photos app not really shared?
If you click "Edit" for a shared photo you get a dialog that says "To edit this photo, you must switch to it in your library", which is quite true, and certainly misleading. When you are viewing an album with no individual photos selected and click the share button (and choose iCloud sharing), the album (the only thing selected) is not shared, while the individual photos in it (none of which are selected), get shared.

@bmike: Yes. It's checked and disabled (in a shared album).

comment Where did my Aperture library go after migrating to Photos?
@bmike: All the descriptions I've found (e.g. this one here) provide descriptions (some quite glowing) about how the Aperture library is preserved. It's not. It is backed up (I managed to find it) but the library used by Aperture by default (e.g. if you open the app following migration) is empty.

@bmike: That sounds right. It seems like Aperture just had a slightly different way of presenting offline photos that made the fact that they were offline less prominent. It's still a pain to have to manually relocate the folders containing the ones that aren't offline.

So despite all indications in the UI (the indication that one is sharing an album, rather than the versions of photos that happen to be in it at the time; the offer to edit a photo by switching "to it" in the library, etc.), sharing shares copies of individual photos, correct?

comment How to show the map in Photos?
So there's no way to go to an arbitrary location and see what photos you've taken there? You have to start by rummaging for a group of photos that happens to have been taken near the desired location?
