I love Apple Aperture, but it seems to be missing a very important function I strive for. I want to be able to lock a photo, meaning once locked I can no longer make changes to that photo.
In Aperture it is so easy to make adjustments, add keywords, etc. Especially when working with so many shortcuts.
Do you have a method of organization to mark a photo as finished? (or ready to publish, etc)
Labels would work for this, but I use labels for other purposes. But that still wouldn't prevent changes.
It would be nice to have a few lock mechanisms, such as lock meta data, lock adjustments, lock all.
