I don't have a Mac powerful enough to run Aperture, so I cannot really say. But that alone tells me how greedy it is for resources (processing, RAM, and video). I have a 2 years old 20" iMac and it's been doing a very good job, so far. I did try Lightroom and I didn't like it, I consider Photoshop to be my digital darkroom with RAW conversion and image editing.<br><br>...<br>** DigitalEye **
Guess it's like many things... comes down to preferences and how you've set up your workflow.<br><br>In any case, I was just curious. I don't have either app and I don't expect to for a while yet.<br><br>[color:red]max</font color=red>
And from what I've heard Aperture's finest days are still ahead. It certainly was a big thing when it first came out and I'm sure Apple is coding away, trying to make it slicker. One of these days I'll have to sit in front of a machine with Aperture installed, see how it works.<br><br>[color:red]max</font color=red>
For me, it's like the other Apple pro apps. Very easy to use yet has a lot of nice stuff to it.<br><br>For the first time I started using Final Cut Express the other day and found it to be really nice. That's how I feel about Aperture.<br><br>
I think different. It has several features that will help us. Simple things but still things that will help our workflow. The Loupe in Bridge is boon. Now I won't have to open several files in ACR to check expressions and sharpness. I like the changes in image adjustment in RAW. The Smart Filters will help many people.<br><br>Sometimes in an upgrade it's the tweeking of little features that in total are a great help. The Brightness/contrast adjustment in Image/Adjustments now is non distructive. Most people didn't use it for that reason, Now beginners, atleast, might use it.<br><br>But that's just me.<br><br>dave<br><br><br>
