Default Apple Aperture 2 .... and now Aperture 3

For all those Mac users who have migrated to LR, it seems as though Apple are back on track and looking to go head to head with the launch of Aperture 2.

Over 100+ new features, for more info take a look here!

Default Aperture 3 By Apple

Hello. Has anyone used the Aperture 3 software by Apple? I am looking for new software and this one seems really good.

Jim,

We're now up to Apple Aperture 3 and they just issued an upgrade to fix some bugs. I have not used it because I use software which has worked for me, mostly PS 7.0 on one computer and CS4 on another and could do anything I wanted. Nicolas Claris and others led me to Capture One which although I purchased several years back, never used!

Now I realize that was a huge mistake. Capture One 3 offers great improvement in processing pictures, especially of people over photoshop. So I believe we should at least try these other programs and after all they are free to use for a month usually.

I'd love to here from Aperture users and learn their experience.

I am convinced now that not looking at alternatives to Photoshop and of course Lightroom can be depriving oneself of major tools that not only might give a result that one like better, but also can save time.

In this category I'd ass SilkyPix and Nik's Vivieza plugin for image adjustment in both PS and Aperture.

Hello.

I guess that I amlooking for an easy to use software program. Aperture looks like it is user friendly with a great outcome. I have LR but I am not a huge fan of it.

Your best bet is to download the trial version and try it yourself to see if you find it easy to use and suits your needs.

I use Aperture 3 for my work. I use it to:
- organize my assignments in folders and projects
- tag images with keywords for easy searches
- quickly edit, compare, select, tag, adjust exposure, colour balance, crop etc
- export to various formats and sizes for printing or post-processing in Photoshop
- easily create web galleries for clients
- archive to offline storage

Yes, I upgraded a couple weeks ago. Never could catch on to LR, but Aperture seems to be it for me. Capture NX2 does NOT work with Snow Leopard, Here I am with AP3, happy as a clam.

doing some work with low light, before sunrise.
