    I would also like to see the masks for completely deleted images ('Empty Aperture Trash') be removed from the library package.

     

    As it is, the masks stay forever. Seems like useless clutter in the current implementation.

    Really? I never noticed! That is a bug!

    I think the target market for Aperture includes many users who have kit lenses which would benefit from a lens distortion database and of course the POV for architecture shots (at the least).

     

    I am pretty sure even the pro's with really good lenses could use the features on occasion.

    That would be a big improvement. One less reason to have to fall back on an external editor and to break the lossless workflow.

    I don't make money selling architecture photos, but architecture and the urban environment figure often in my work.  DxO Viewpoint has stopped me from *******(1) after expensive Tilt/Shift lenses (which have long been required for architecture photographers). 

     

    In similar fashion, lens distortion correction in software allows manufacturers to produce less expensive lens that, with software correction, perform on par with heretofore very expensive lenses. 

     

    As I understand it, software correction is much less expensive than hardware correction.  Lenses, after all, are image-distorters designed to produce images we think of as "normal".  The normalization of the data (using math) is much easier accomplished than the normalization of the light (using glass).  Personally, I think a camera pioneer could produce a light-recording device that, coupled with software "correction" would be radically different, with the same IQ for lower cost, than current cameras (which, imho, remain frustratingly mired to the days of needing to bend the light to fit the recording media).  I look forward to the day when cameras are light-recorders, not picture-makers.

    Indeed. The average zoom lens for all day carry around would feel much more competent if we knew we could fix those issues swiftly and non-destructively in software.

    Ooops!

     

     

    Certainly don't want to break the rules of use, but let's see; Logic Pro X available today, new version of Final Cut Pro X coming around the same time as new Mac Pro......hmm........

    Shssh!  I'll be reduced to asterisks again.  .

    Re: When will Aperture 4 be available please ?

     

    Between September and December 2013

    One important item asked for since v1:

     

    ----------------------------------------------

    The ability to (single user) synch a single Aperture Library to two or more Apple devices. The classic pro-photog solution being desktop in the office and laptop in the field. iPad integration should also figure into this mix.
    ----------------------------------------------

     

    The current suggested workarounds like flaky Library merges, sneakernet external drives, multiple Libraries, etc. are NOT pro-level solutions. Not even close.

     

    Lack of this feature drove me from owning a Mac Pro + MBP laptop to instead just owning a desktop replacement 2011 17" MBP, no Mac Pro.

     

    I would love to again have Mac Pro power in the office but the only way to obtain a professional single-user multi-computer images workflow means A) leave Aperture or B) stick with using just a laptop. The current multi-computer workarounds in Aperture are amateurish and unacceptable.

     

    Note that some variant of this issue is discussed here about every day (for free, by us users). It grates on me every time one of us directs someone to some lame solution like sneakernet drives; or worse, the thousands of users who on their own choose to solve with multiple Libraries and debillitate the power of the Aperture images database.

     

    Synch is not rocket science. Apple's Filemaker Pro database has done it since the early 1990s, and iPhones have been synching well for years.

    I'm with you on that, SierraDragon.

     

    Syncing the library should be designed for Pro's. IMHO - that would be a feature that could be implemented in the 'Apple' way (as in easy / no-brainer commands) and would benefit any segment of the market Apple is after here.

     

    New Mac Pro coming, Mavericks with multiple monitor support (finally!). Hope we see some love from Apple on the Aperture front this year.
