Output sharpening in Aperture (considering escaping to Lightroom)
Apr 5, 2013

I am quite happy with using Apple Aperture in my workflow.

The only and biggest problem I have is that Aperture can't do output sharpening. It is very frustrating. You can do printing, exporting to photoshare services, etc. but with no sharpening at the output.

Therefore, I am looking for a solution that can get me output sharpening.

1) Ditch Aperture, and upgrade to Lighroom 4. That would cost me £59 (I am aligible for upgrade as I own previous version). Unfortunatelly, I cant use the version I have as it no longer supports my camera. I would need to start managing my pictures from scratch and access old pictures via Aperture.

2) Keep Aperture and get something for sharpening. Like Nik Sharpener Pro. Now all Nik product can be bought for $143. The disadvatantage is that this doesn't really naturally fit into my workflow. It is an extra step in my worfklow.

What would you do? Any other options?
