I use iPhoto for my mobile (iPhone, iPad) pictures and I have a separate library in Aperture for the pictures I take with my DSLR.

Until now I was just transferring my mobile photos to iPhoto.

Now I want to sync my iPhoto library (at least some of my albums) to my iPhone. The problem is: in iTunes, in the photo tab, I have only one option in the "Sync photos from" dropdown, iPhoto, BUT when I select it, it's the Aperture library that shows up.

It seems to me that there was a time when I had both options, iPhoto and Aperture, in the dropdown. It must have come from an update…

Any ideas on how to sort thing up?

Ok, found it.

You just have to create a new library (open iPhoto with the alt key pressed), quit iPhoto, and open it again with alt pressed and select the original library file. Open iTunes, et voilà!
