I just started using Apeture and have found that when I view a DNG image I cannot make it bigger than 2"x2" (approx). When I view a CR2 image, it is a big as the viewer windw. When I look at the image data, Apeture lists CR2's as 3504x2332 pixels, DNG's as 256x171. Seems to only pick up the thumbnail as the image in DNG. Bridge does not have thi problem... shows all images in correct size. Am I doing something wrong?
Thanks in advance,
It sounds to me like the DNG you're using isn't compatible with Aperture. Have a read of Aperture's DNG requirements... there are a couple requirements:
1) The DNG is generated from a camera file format that Aperture already supports (e.g. Canon 1D mark II or 20D)
2) The conversion is specifically either linear (or not linear) -- there's a checkbox and you have to do the conversion one of these ways. I'll give you an RTFM here because I haven't done it -- I sorta think DNG is a waste as I don't want the extra step in my workflow.
What you're seeing is the JPEG thumbnail FWIW.
