How do I create master files in Aperture so that I can email from within that application?

Most of a photos started in iPhoto originally.

Hi Colin. I'm not completely sure what you're looking for, but Aperture has a nice "import from iPhoto" process which can move your iPhoto library into Aperture. This seems like somewhat of a separate issue from the mechanism you use to email a picture -- it's pretty easy to email from either program. If you want to use Aperture to organize & process your pictures, that makes perfect sense, but it's not clear to me this is necessary from your question. – khedron Jan 11 '12 at 16:56

There is the ability to export directly to e-mail from Aperture.

Try this: Choose File > Share > Email (or press Option-E).
