Aperture combines the control and speed pros want for demanding photo tasks with the easy learning curve iPhoto users need to step up to an advanced photo tool. It has been fully optimized for the Retina display on the new MacBook Pro, letting you browse and edit high-resolution images with remarkable clarity and resolution. And with a new unified photo library, you can now move seamlessly from iPhoto to Aperture and back without having to import, export, or reprocess your photos. Aperture is packed with innovative adjustment tools to refine your images, including a revolutionary auto-white balance that uses skin tones to correct color casts and a professional auto-enhance that applies exposure, vibrancy, curves, and more with a single click. It also includes powerful brushes for painting image adjustments onto parts of your photo, and dozens of ready-to-use professional photo effects. You can share your photos directly to Facebook and Flickr, add them to your Photo Stream, and showcase your best work as an impressive coffee table-style photo book or as stunning slideshows that weave together photos, audio, text, and HD video.
Should I get the app?
The app seemed like a good idea, right? I mean it’s fully optimized for retina display, you can organize photos using faces and places, achieve perfect images with brushes and effects, and not to mention photo steam. But, so far, customers are not happy with it at all. Several die-hard users are thinking it is time to move on to another program. “This really bad, it is slow, hangs often, facebook link seem to have wiped out my previous photos.” Yeah, that doesn’t sound satisfied to me.
With all the reviews I have read on the new app, I would not waste my money. People really don’t seem to be enjoying it very much. Apple was probably too focused on the new MacBook to work any harder on this app, but I mean, can you blame them?
So my advice would be, no do not get this app. Unless you have $79.99 to blow, I would go for a different application.
You Tell Me
Everybody has their own opinion, do you think Apple did a good job with this app? Why or why not?
