I feel like I must be making this harder than it is.
I have an aperture library on my laptop. I use it to import images from my camera. But I don't have much space left on my hard drive so I want to move my images to my external.
On my external drive, I have another library. I realize I may have my setup "wrong", but that is the way it is. The library on my external already has all my images from my iPhoto library so I want to import everything there and have that be my "main" library.
What I need to know is:
1) What is the proper way to import the images such that masters are moved to the external?
2) How do I verify that this is correct (I don't want to delete my images and find out that I was wrong). 3) If I should be doing referenced images all the way, then please explain how I get from where I am, to where I should be.
Every time I import it (and I've tried 3 or 4 times), it either shows that it is referenced or it looks good until I move the images that are on my laptop to the trash can, then they look like they are broken references.
