  • Yup—no raw, no interest.

  • Lightroom has its own set of problems in terms of providing a clunky UI that wastes screen real estate and forces a certain workflow on the user. I've fiddled with every version since the pre-1.0...

  • I've used Aperture since v1.5 and have dabbled with every version of Lightroom starting with Beta 4. I find that Aperture's workflow and user interface smokes Lightroom's and that the adjustment...
  • More social media integration—the Aperture team sure listened to their users in planning this update.

    Apple's satellite imagery for out-of-the-way areas is also horrifically low resolution...

  • I think the update is waiting on the release of Apple's mapping system in the desktop OS. No way that Apple would ship a major Aperture update that relies on Google Maps for Places.
  • I don't think that Aperture X (or whatever it's called) will rely on Google Maps for Places. So I'd be surprised to see it before Sea Lion is released with Apple's home-grown mapping solution...
  • Agreed. I think it more likely that Apple will deliver the needed improvements in Aperture 4 than Adobe will ever clean up the user-interface abominations that have been Lightroom 1–5.
  • I'm very happy with my Garmin eTrex 30. It's waterproof and runs over 24 hours on a pair of AA rechargeable batteries, which is important for backcountry trips. Pulling the .gpx files onto my Mac...
  • I figure that one developer has been keeping Aperture alive as a side project during their lunch break the past few years. Maybe they're finally getting a sidekick?
  • I'm using DxO Optics Pro for where lens correction is needed. It also does a fantastic job with noise reduction and perspective correction.
  • I'd recommend using a managed library unless you know that you need a referenced one. This would mostly be for a case where you need to share the masters between multiple applications. No raw...
  • In terms of noise reduction and lens/perspective correction, sure. But in terms of image management or user interface, no way. —Andreas
  • I think that Aperture wins for overall usability, file management capabilities, and user interface but that the Lightroom develop model provides stronger raw conversion. Aperture's full-screen mode...
  • Consider also DxO Optics Pro, which addresses lens and perspective correction along with noise.
