    Hhhmm, not happy with the update. More and more people are migrating from iPhoto to Aperture and I think more and more professional photographers are leaving to Lightroom. I really begin to think Apple is pointing there market stretagies to the masses and forget the professionals.


    the only two reasons I stick with Aperture is the ease management of my photo's and I that I have NIK software for Aperture.

    This certainly is dragging on for a long time. But I suspect that Aperture 4 will not ship until Apple's in-house mapping service is ready for prime time, as it would naturally replace Google Maps in Places. That might not be until Snow Leopard ships later this summer.

    Native support for AVCHD files.  Nice! I hope it works well.  Not even iMovie can natively support AVCHD without transcoding.



    Also it looks like I may have to re-auto-enhance all my masters if it's really that much improved.

    Well, in my Lion boot I have updated Aperture to 3.3, and intalled iPhoto (I had not yet done so, there).  In order to update the iPhoto version 9.0, I had to first manually download the update for 9.1, which apparently contained an update installer.  Once that was done, Software Update could present the update for 9.3.


    This will be a painless testing, as I only have used test libraries for Aperture  in Lion.


    As far as sharing, I am presently at loss to understand how Aperture can still effectively use more than one Library, while for iPhoto there is only one?


    Time and tests will tell.

    Frank -- thanks for the updates!  Enjoy.


    Léonie -- my new laptop has been announced.  They don't have them at the local A-Store yet, though.  Guessing you will jump for one as well?  Have read that the new retina screen is 75% less reflective, but have also read that it is "way too shiny".  Waiting to see on in person.  Will we see a non-glare retina display?  (More: no optical drive.  Hmm.  Was going to go with dual optical drives in the old form-factor.  Have to see the final specs and prices.  SDHC slot -- Yes!  Firewire -- gone.  Thunderbolt to DVI adaptors?)  Aperture: re-arrangeable Projects -- Yes! (At least a start towards the promise the Projects View presents.)  And -- drum roll please:


    Master is Dead!

    Minor terminology changes, including "Original" instead of "Master" and "Info" instead of "Metadata"  (Source)

  • Ernie Stamper Level 8 Level 8 (37,555 points)

    First test with using Skin Tone to WB was very positive.


    Still Metadata in the command bar, and pull-downs.  Info is a good change since there were dialoges for more than metadata.

    The lack of any information regarding improvement to noise reduction is very disappointing.

  • Kirby Krieger Level 6 Level 6 (12,510 points)

    Details?  Feel free to speculate -- love to know what you're seeing and what you think has been done.  Thx.

    Ah  Aperture is now a true Lion app. Notice the icons and tool bar. While I'm not a fan of garish colors the way it was was fine by me. Not a big fan of the new look.

  • Kirby Krieger Level 6 Level 6 (12,510 points)

    Screenshot?  Have read this a number of times, but can't visualize the change.  The Library tab is also said to have been neutraled.

  • Frank Caggiano Level 7 Level 7 (25,715 points)

    Ok in the new Library tab there are two headings Projects and Albums (in addition to others). Why?


    Albums can be placed under the Projects heading, but Projects can't go under the Albums heading! And neither of those two headings can be moved.


    I liked having the Library Albums above the projects. If I have a few projects opened the Albums section will be off the bottom of the display. I've already had to move my Local Library Albums into a folder under Projects name __Local Albums (the double undrscore forces the folder to the top of the projects list when I sort by name).

    Whats the matter not brave enough to gove it a go

  • Kirby Krieger Level 6 Level 6 (12,510 points)

      Everytime I run Software Update my system spontaneously, abruptly, and improperly logs me out.


    Makes updating difficult.


    I'll try again after the sun sets in California.


    Thanks for the picture -- quite helpful.

  • Frank Caggiano Level 7 Level 7 (25,715 points)

    And that last 12 months album is a joke! I set it to 1 month (the smallest time period you can set)  and I have over 200 images displayed there.


    I have smart albums that do this and at least there you can narrow it down as far as you like, even to the day.
