    In what is surely a release timed (at least partially) to reassure pro users that Apple is still paying attention to them, the company has released updates to its Final Cut Pro X, Motion, Compressor and MainStage apps. Earlier today, Apple announced that it was discontinuing Aperture, its pro photo editing app, in favor of the Photos app in the upcoming OS X Yosemite release. Read More

    Apple To Cease Development Of Aperture And Transition Users To Photos For OS X

    With the release of OS X Yosemite later this year, Apple will cease the development of its ‘pro’ photo editing app Aperture. Users of that program will be transitioned to Photos, a new app that was introduced during the WWDC keynote and that will be released next year. Photos integrates many of the advanced photo editing features that were previously found in Aperture and will… Read More

  • Aperture 3 gets its first major update

    Aperture 3, Apple’s latest prosumer photo manipulation and organization software, got its first update and it looks like a doozy. As you recall, Aperture was eating memory like an Ancient Roman at an orgy and essentially bogging down all and sundry.

  • Apple releases Aperture 2 with 100 features that should have been there before


    This news is slightly bittersweet for me, since I just switched to Adobe Lightroom last week, mainly due to the unbelievably sluggish performance of Aperture with even my modest library of images. Now, I don’t want to get into the usual debate over whether all of Apple’s “features” — of which there were 300 in Leopard and now 100 in just this one program &mdash… Read More

  • Lensbabies New Aperture Kit


    Lensbaby announced today the availability of a creative aperture for budding photographers who feel the need to shoot pictures through various outlines. The kit includes a heart and star aperture and five blank apertures to punch out in any pattern you wish. I like Lensbaby, but I’m not sure about this one.
