    For those of us running Macs, there is a new kid on the block:

    Apple - Aperture

    Having just looked at the videos that Apple posted, I am very exited. Pretty much everything that annoyed me about working with NEFs, such as speed an the inability to do a lot of work with the raw files itself seems to be addressed. Plus a great tool for cataloguing photos. For instance, it will group photos from a burst together, based on the time interval.

    Not a replacement for Photoshop, but a program that works together with it.

    Give it a look, you might like it as well...

    I was really impressed with what I saw in the video that Apple posted on it.
    The only problem is that I need to buy a new tower (G4 Dual 1.25) and powerbook (G4 1GHz) if I really want to use it :frown:

    Sorry Dave, those puny machines can't handle it:
  5. I just sat through all the quicktime promos for this it sure looks like one awesome piece of software.

    One thing about this software is that it's going to be a 1.0. Apple usually does not do real well with 1.0s. Think OSX 1.0, iPhoto 1.0, iDVD, ... did I mention OSX 1.0, the beta that wasn't? The last expensive software I bought from Apple, was the QuickTine VR Authoring Studio. It worked: I have produced VR objects with it (with a VERY low rez camera!), but it was clunky and not very intuitive. I hope Aperture is much better than this, but I will probably wait until a later version before jumping in.

    Oh yeah, and by then I will probably have upgraded my aging computer.
