Hi asch,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

The .afphoto format is Affinity proprietary format and cannot be loaded/opened by Aperture.

After you edit your image in Affinity select File ▸ Save - a dialog will appear saying the image contains non-pixel elements -. Select Save Flattened to flatten the image before sending to Aperture. The edited image will appear in Aperture alongside the original. Make sure you have TIFF selected in Aperture ▸ Preferences..., Export tab, External Editor File Format since Affinity Photo will not overwrite PSD's by design and so Aperture can't also keep track of them.
