Summary: This imaging work-flow application isn't the Holy Grail many hoped it would be, but Apple Aperture could make life easier for photographers who need to sort through large numbers of photographs quickly and efficiently.
Pros: Excellent sorting and organizing tools; very fast on the right hardware; smooth work flow from one task to another; attractive interface.
Cons: Requires high-end system for optimal results; closed architecture; all images stored in single, monolithic library; subpar interaction with other applications.
Excerpt: (1 items) The Mac App Store has changed how we access and update software. A perfect example is the latest release of Aperture. Version 3.3.1 is a dot release of software that’s more that two years old ( ), yet it includes many enhancements and features that in the past may have been the foundation of Aperture 4. So we don’t get a new box (or DVD) to put on the shelf, but there’s also no charge for this upgrade, which is essentially a rewritten application.
Pros: Retina display support, Overall performance improvement on compatible Macs, Faster importing, especially for Raw shooters, No cost to upgrade, AVCHD video support, Cleaner user interface, Improved editing tools, Unified library structure for iPhoto/Aperture
Cons: Requires Mac OS X 10.7.4, Some may miss advanced Highlights/Shadows sliders
Conclusion: Despite its sleek, state-of-the-art interface and many excellent features, Aperture 1.0.1's occasional bugginess and generally inferior RAW image rendering make it hard to recommend to professional photographers. But Apple has a track record of finding great improvements and innovations in version 2. Hold off until then.
Pros: Sleek interface. Background image importing. Strong management features. "Smart" Web galleries and albums. Excellent output options. Non-destructive image editing.
Cons: Requires a very powerful system. No full-image zoom beyond 100 percent. Generally inferior RAW format rendering. Lacks important adjustment tools. Bug in export of TIFF metadata.
Conclusion: For under $80, Apple's Aperture gets you capable pro-level photo workflow and editing software for your iPhoto library.
Pros: Clear interface. Wide raw camera file support. Good organizational tools, including face recognition and geo-location. No import needed to use iPhoto library. Excellent output options, including soft proofing. Support for iCloud Photo Stream and MacBook with Retina display. Good value for money.
Cons: Weak noise and chromatic aberration correction. Minimal video editing. No geometry correction tools. Mac-only.
Excerpt: We’ve been testing Apple’s Aperture 3 photo management software for a little over a month and as we integrated it into our day-to-day photography workflow, we realized that it is a well-rounded and thoughtful application that’s designed to appeal to novices as well as professionals, which if you think about it is a daunting task.
Conclusion: If you work on a Windows system, the choice between Lightroom and Aperture is easy; since there's no Windows version of Aperture, your choice is made for you. On a PowerPC G5 or G4-based Mac, Lightroom's less demanding system requirements make it the more attractive alternative. But what if you have all the horsepower a tower chassis can contain? The answer is still the more-efficient Lightroom.
Pros: No Windows version, Relatively steep hardware requirements, Limited Apple support options, Restrictive file-management system, No curves view or editor
Cons: Excellent retouching tools in a streamlined interface, Delivers great results, Integrated colour management
Conclusion: Giunto alla versione 1.5.1, forte del consenso da parte di molti professionisti e appassionati, Aperture si presenta con più di 20 nuove funzionalità oltre a svariate decine di migliorie spesso frutto della stretta collaborazione con professionisti del settore.
Summary: Apples eget program minner mye om Lightroom, men det er faktisk helt omvendt. Adobe la ved introduksjonen i 2006 Lightroom meget tett opp mot Aperture, som var i ferd med å få godt tak i Mac-fotografene. Aperture er oversiktlig og enkelt og ...
