Apple Aperture 3


Last year, photographers interested in Apple's software had to choosebetween Aperture, a pro-level image organizer and editor, and itsfarm-club counterpart, iPhoto '09. It was a tough decision becausepower users needed the editing tools in Aperture but...

New editing tools, including Brushes, let photographers do everything within Aperture. Places feature displays images on maps and lets you search by location. Many useful updates and additions. Takes advantage of 64-bit hardware. Overhauled slideshow...

Brief slowdown can sometimes happen even on powerful Macs. Faces feature can also be sluggish

With these great new editing tools, many pros won't need to open Photoshop. And intermediate users will be able to do what they want without getting lost in the deep feature set--and can learn new photo-editing techniques without feeling intimidated.

Apple Aperture 3 - Looking Good


It's only the first time I've the Apple Aperture, but I find it very easy. The software is almost the same as Adobe Lightroom, which I am familiar with and have used several times. If you're curious about the latest update on Apple's photo management...

Lots of fun and playful features

Features need further improvement ; limited to Mac OS

I find Aperture 3 extremely useful, though not as advanced when it comes to cameras' technical compatibility. The software is fun, convenient, and easy to use. There are a lot of playful features like the Slideshow, Book, Web Page and Web Journal, and...

Apple Aperture 3 review


When Apple updated its popular iPhoto app last year, Aperture 2, the company's professional photo editor, started to look almost left behind.

Apple Aperture 3 now craftily straddles the divide between heavyweight professional productivity and consumer photo browser. There’s still that powerful indexing and manipulation we saw in Aperture 2; but now with better social skills, whether finding...

Apple Aperture 3 review


Aperture 3 continues where the previous version left off: it wants to be the shoe box under your bed used to store all your photos, but at the same time it seeks to be your one-stop processing lab.

Heaps of new features. Big performance improvements. Better for professionals and consumers equally

Little reason to tempt amateurs away from iPhoto

Apple Aperture 3 review


Earlier versions of Apple Aperture were aimed at the more experienced photographer. V3, however, is more consumer friendly, like a upmarket Apple iPhoto

Faces and Places are welcome additions to already powerful organisational capabilities; Non-destructive adjustment brushes to apply effects selectively; Full screen mode much more usable; Excellent photobook design and slideshow modules

Most new features already on offer in iPhoto or Adobe Lightroom
