Aperture 3 presets are starting to appear in the wild in a bunch of places on the net.

As of today, the busiest place to find links to presets is on the Flickr Aperture discussions, in this thread.

Terry Chay's preset articles:

Gary Seim, who is also maintaining a list of every preset he can find:

The old Aperture Network/new MacCreate site has a bunch of preset packs which are free to premium subscribers:

Finally, I've set up a free gallery on my Aperture Assistant site where people can upload their presets in a searchable gallery along with before-and-after thumbnails, ready for anyone to download them.
