Excerpt: Before Apple's Aperture hit the market a couple of years ago, RAW converters simply did just that - convert RAW files. Aperture broke the mould with its all-in-one approach to post-production. So, as you can imagine, the list of features is huge - more than 100 of them new - and there were plenty to start with. Lots of the features were revolutionary when Aperture was first launched, but have since become standard. However, there are still plenty of unique features.
