  • Realising Photos app won't be an Aperture replacement for anytime soon, Aperture Expert turn around again : -- Benoit
  • Thanks for the hints. Unfortunately I was using a managed library. -- Benoit
  • No I haven't move my library from Aperture to ASP yet. Just use ASP for new photos at this point of time. I'll look at this. You are right, the zoom is quite sensitive. And yes, the fact you ...
  • This looks very interesting...just downloaded the Beta. At first sight, it looks to be superior to Pixelmator but I will compare both more in depth. Thanks very much for sharing.
  • I came across this interesting review and comparaison between Lightroom 5 and AfterShot Pro 2 and thought it might be good to share it here as many folks around are looking to alternatives to ...
  • Absolutrly agree with that too. It looks like an excellent iPhoto replacement. -- Benoit
  • Absolutely right. Yep I forgot that one but you are right.  However, basic levels and curves seem to be missing so far so about lens correction...I would not hold my breath.
  • Well...what I understand is Apple did not bring a serious update to Aperture (I mean by serious is some functionality improvements, not just bug fixes or IOS integration) since June 2012. People ...
  • The ones who were waiting to see Photos before finding an Alternative to Aperture will be extremely disappointed. I did not wait, I caught the hints long time ago on Apple showing the door to ...
  • Quickly...all in AfterShot Pro 2 1. Crop 2. Redone WB 3. Added some fill light, vibrancy and saturation 4. Added some local contrast 5. Added quite a bit of sharpening 6. Resize and export with ...
  • Nothing extraordinary. Played quickly with Corel AfterShot Pro 2. 1. Changed WB, bumped Magenta and red a little, added a touch of sharpening and added some vignetting 2. Same as 1 but in BW.
  • I use AfterShot Pro 2 and mine does not crash like you mention. But then again, I am using Mac version 64-bits Again, my software does have effect if I use the sharpening slider. There are 2 Noise ...
  • I second with Corel AfterShot Pro 2. I am using it for à month now and it is a pleasant surprise. Very good software and blazing fast. -- Benoit
  • Pay attention as in Macs, it is recommended that memory go in parity. So you need to have two same memory sticks (2 X 2GB or 2 X 4 GB or 2 X 8 GB). Also, as stated before, you can download the ...
  • Sorry...I meant the iPhone... -- Benoit
  • Thanks very much for the detailed post. One question: how the battery life compares to the Phone? -- Benoit
  • Well...I have been an iPhone and iOS fan forever until I saw Nokia phones recently.  I must admit that I am highly tempted to dump my iPhone and move to Windows Phone on a heartbeat.  I like ...
  • Well apparently NX-D is not very good, super slow and do not forget it is version 1.0... You are PC or Mac? As Raw converter, you have a few options. First, Capture One 7 is quite good but pricey. ...
  • New app to transition Aperture library to LR...
  • Yes it does work fine in Mavericks. Apparently, the frequency of updates is improving. They pushed 2 updates so far since V2 came out end of May I think. They apparently have a clear roadmap in ...
