Automatic Creation Of ADD, ImageIQ, and RawHide Smart Albums in Aperture

I have created a procedure that will automatically generate some custom smart albums apropriate for use with ADD, ImageIQ For Aperture, and RawHide For Aperture.

1. Save this Aperture Library to you desktop or somewhere else convenient. This library has no images in it, and only contains smart albums.

SSoftLtd.com Smart Albums

2. Open up Aperture with the library you normally use.
3. In Aperture select the File->Import->Library... menu item.
4. Select the "SSoftLtd.com Smart Albums.aplibrary" library.
5. Import it... You'll now find that your library has a bunch of new smart albums

These smart albums include:
