With my new iMac this last week, I have been toying with getting Aperture to help with my image browsing and editing. <br><br>Is anyone using it? What do you think of it. I haven't worked with it much but think it works very quickly. I like that. <br><br>I am also somewhat mystified as to how it manages the files. I like to know where my files are and visually keep track of different versions of them. (oops didn't mean to use that word "version" as it's one of Apertures phrases). <br><br>That is one of my peeves about it in that it uses different terms for activities and tools that I have grown accustom in Photoshop. <br><br>Downloaded the 30 day trial. Was miffed this morning when I couldn't export an image on which I was working. I thought the trial was a complete working version.<br><br><br><br><br>

i still have 1.56 and don't think i'll upgrade. i used aperture for a while, but i never fully understood the file management system it uses. i'd sometimes import into an old set and sometimes create a new set, etc. -- i wasn't sure why i did what i did nor did i really know how to fix it. i also used the vault one time and still don't remember how i did it or what prompted me to try. i backup my whole computer so the vault didn't seem necessary. i really like the editing tools in Aperture, but i have gone back to iPhoto and then i'll use Photoshop when i need a bit more power. then again, i still open up Aperture from time to time as well. i guess i think i'll eventually figure it out if i keep fiddling. <br><br>i should have used the tutorial. doh.<br><br>--<br>[color:red] Kansas Jayhawks -- 2008 National Champions </font color=red>
I have Aperture on my Intel MacMini and it runs pretty smoothly. I bought it just because I wanted a program like iPhoto that had better color controls. My biggest problem with Aperture is you can't zoom in on photos at multiple levels. You can only hit the Z key to do a zoom in. Aperture gives great control of color with the overall photos. But doesn't allow selection of specific areas of photos, only the entire pic. <br><br>I have the latest iPhoto and Aperture plus Photoshop CS3. Aperture does all you want with photos unless you need to alter specific areas of photos. <br><br>Too many lives they've spent across the ocean. Too much money been spent upon the moon. Well, until they make it right, I hope they never sleep at night. They better make some changes and do it soon. -Things Goin' On/Lynyrd Skynyrd

I have version 1.5.6 and I use it all the time. I want to get version 2 because Apple opened it up to outside plugins and there are a few available I think. <br><br><br><br>FSM, lower left corner is the backup to Vault<br><br><br><br>my photos
but i never fully understood the file management system it uses. i'd sometimes import into an old set and sometimes create a new set, <br><br><br>The file management system received a from-the-ground-up reworking in 2.0<br>I'm hoping to upgrade to 2.0 in a week or so... <br><br><br><br>[image][/image]
