Some nifty features for sure. Dig the “loop” thingy. Also the saving of instructions to achieve altered versions instead of making actual copies. Sounds like a real voodoo space saver. Smart.

Could replace the need for photomechanic, photoshop, and extensis portfolio in one swoop. It be needing some serious speed though. We’ll see. It requires (recommends) a pretty fast processor and takes up a good chunk of disk space. Wonder how it will fare on a powerbook?

I just cant refuse to try it … seems like they got it right … the website layout is definitely made for a big screen.

I was wondering if it used the Aplle Core Image tools in OS X. Thats supposed to speed up image changes.

I noticed the screenshots did look like its designed for a big screen though…although I’m using several programs in my Powerbook workflow and could do with a single app. I’d be interested in finding out its batch captioning / IPTC functions.

Just had more of a look. It needs a monster G5 dual processor Mac to do the business. I’m a measly 12" Powerbook guy, so maybe they’ll bring out Aperture LE or something in future…

Does it work in 16-bit?

I’ve run throught the Quicktimes on the Apple site and I’d assume it would work in 16 bit (it should for how much they’re charging…) and on reflection, does look bloody nice and could be just the ticket despite the expense. I suppose if it does actually take the place of Photoshop, Photo Mechanic etc, I could remove them and just use Aperture, which would take up the space they left on my Powerbook…

Bare in mind too that Apple are about to switch to the pentium processor which would work very well for this new program, I expect.

Just as I feel I’m catching up with the hard and software I’m about to get left behind again.

I’ve been shooting RAW for a while, even more so now with the 5D, and am beginning to wonder if I’ll be using Jpeg again…The RAW file is such a nice starting place for image processing and I’ve found in some aspects its easier and quicker to acquire a RAW file and then make a JPEG copy than actually process JPEGS alone. I recently shot the Labour Party Conference and the light was terrible. Shot everything on 800 ISO and RAW, and produced nice low noise JPEGS with decent skin tones. I would have had to faff about much longer shooting Jpeg alone…I think RAW is the way to go – but it really burns through CF cards.

There are some interesting notes on Aperture over at Macintouch.
