I'm thinking of getting aperture but have a question about how the program manages files. I know with lightroom you can either import all your pics into a lightroom library or you can choose to keep all your photos in different files all over your hard drive and lightroom will still see them. Can Aperture handle files in the same way? I really don't like storing all my pics in a programs specific library. I'm doing that now in iphoto and it makes me nervous. I wouldn't be asking this question if I could demo aperture but a a demo came with my new mpb and I didn't bother looking at it until after owning it for more than a month and now it says my demo has expired.!!
