Check your software update. Doesn't look like it's hit the Mac App Store yet.

 

What's New in Aperture 3.2.1

  • Resolves an issue that could cause Aperture to quit unexpectedly at launch on Macs with Core Duo processors
  • Addresses problems that could cause the Crop tool to switch to the incorrect orientation or resize incorrectly
  • Resolves rendering issues when cropping images with Onscreen Proofing enabled
  • Location menus are now displayed correctly on the map in the Places view when "Photos" is selected in the Library Inspector

    The Mothership Responds! I sent in a Bug Report over this very issue (Crop Tool) in vs 3.2....

    Downloading now.  Hundredths increments don't scare me  .

     

    The server is sluggish already.

     

    I sure hope they completely fumigated the crop this time.

  • 4. Re: Aperture 3.2.1 is out

    It appears they have!

     

    No problems downloading and installing (don't even have to reboot).  Library get upgraded on launch -- take two seconds (on a very large Library).

     

    Cropped 50 Images.  Never had the crop come up wrongly oriented or set to the wrong aspect ratio (even when selecting already cropped Images).

     

    They even fixed the "can't start the crop selection outside the Image boundary" bug that was introduced in 3.2.

     

    Obviously, can't say that these bugs have been quashed (or that others haven't been introduced), but for me, so far, so very good.

     

    Some kind of plaudits to Apple for promptly fixing these errors (though the word "iatrogenic" comes to mind  ).

     

    (NB: Still on Snow Leopard.)

    Ok you sold me but if this blows up I can find Pittsburgh

    (NB: Still on Snow Leopard.)

    I think I'm making the jump this weekend, see what happens.

    Just downloaded the 3.2.1 fix, and I have an Intel Core Duo.

     

    And right away was back to normal and running better than before I upgraded to 3.2 which killed all functionality with my older processor.

     

    Many thanks to those folk who, no doubt, worked hard to resolve this issue.

     

    Also Nix plug-ins seem happy too.

     

    So yup seems like good news.

    Assuming you survive.  Do post your results.  The OS upgrade is certainly in my future, but for a forgotten but recently noted reason, I am still wary.

    why is a .0.1 release so large >550megs?

    Just downloaded update. Now running Aperture 3.2.1.

    Seem fully functional.

    Let's all keep our fingers crossed.

    Did the 3.2.1 download. All looks better than before. Really, and I don't think I'm desensitized or something. The Tiffs that were affected, or infected, load quicker than before. So far so good. Back in the saddle.

    Just completed importing a large file, a Landscape image via CD scanned from a transparency with a Tango drum scanner. 403.32 Mb,---Pixel size, 9375 X 7518---70.5 Mp, 16 bit.

     

    Definitely a faster load process than before 3.2, now at 3.2.1. There's no lag after clicking on the thumbnail. There's a quick focus firm from the click. Whereas before the loading took time. This is positive. Even the sound of the Cd driver seemed more powerful. Much quicker. I did some editing with tools. This process seems the same so far. There's still load time after initiating levels for example. This is obviously a fact of life with editors, though having limited experience with a large variety of programs. I only know what I hear. What I hear is everybody has something to gripe about with editors.

     

    Very pleased with the importing exercise. Now I need to heed all advice on this discussion since 14 days ago, and get some backup!

    Did the upgrade just now, it's still messing up past crops from my upgraded library and there still doesn't seem to be any way to go back to the old crop view for straightened photos. (I.e. shows full photo on an angle and cropping overlay keeps hitting the angled edges turning crops of straightened photos into resize, move a little, resize, move a little, etc, etc)

     

    Thank goodness for Time Machine, did a backup before the upgrade, going to restore my library and old 3.1.3 version now...

     

    *sigh*  Thumbs down from me.

    Core Duo Processor; OS 10.6.8

     

    I have Time Machine backing things up on my HD, but the Aperture Vault is on an external HD.

     

    Like many of you, I had to revert to version 3.1.3 when version 3.2 kept crashing.  One problem I saw while I was still attempting to use version 3.2, in addition to the crashes, was that I could no longer access the vault because the photos there were created by an earlier version of Aperture - version 3.1.3. 

     

    Can anyone answer one - or all - of these questions:

    1. Will the content of the vault automatically be upgraded if I try version 3.2.1?

    2. If not, can I use the 'update vault' function in Aperture to upgrade the photos in the vault? or

    3. Would I have to delete the current library on the vault, create a new one, and rename it?

    I think the new interaction of the Straighten and Crop adjustments is an improvement that was needed.  Straightening has always auto-cropped the Image (still does).  Previously, when cropping a straightened Image, one was presented with only the already auto-cropped part of the Image.  This is now corrected (imho) -- when cropping a straightened Image, one is presented with the entire Image, and can chose a crop area that includes part of the Image that had been auto-cropped.

     

    The "penalty" for giving us all of a straightened Image from which to crop, is that now we have to consciously decide the trade-off between straighten and crop, and determine how much of a  cropping limitation we are willing to accept from straightening.  This is, imho, not a penalty at all, but rather what I would expect from a program such as Aperture. 

     

    NB:  The former (auto-cropping) functionality is not lost.  Simply crop first, then invoke the Straighten adjustment.  As you straighten, your crop box will be auto-resized.

     

    This was an overdue correction to an over-done bit of assumed helpfulness.  I say, "Well done."
