Apple Releases Aperture 3
Tuesday, February 9, 2010 - 9:30 PM EST
Posted by: Glenn

Apple today introduced Aperture 3, the next major release of its photo editing and management software, with over 200 new features including Faces, Places and Brushes. According to the company, Aperture 3 makes it even easier and faster to organize large photo libraries by building on the Faces and Places features introduced in iPhoto '09. It also introduces new tools to refine your photos including Brushes for painting image adjustments onto parts of your photo, and Adjustment Presets for applying professional photo effects with just one click. The software also makes it easy to share your work with slideshows that weave together photos, audio, text and HD video.

"Millions of people love using iPhoto to organize, edit and share their digital photos," said Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. "Aperture 3 is designed for both professionals who edit and manage massive libraries of photos and iPhoto users who want to take their photos further with easy-to-use tools such as Brushes and Adjustment Presets."

Aperture 3 is available now through the Apple Store for $199. Existing Aperture users can upgrade for $99. A downloadable 30-day trial version is also available here. It should also be noted that Aperture 3 runs as a 64-bit application on Macs with Intel Core 2 Duo processors running Snow Leopard.

[Update:] Well, that didn't take long. There's already an update in Software Update for Aperture 3 users. It's called Aperture SlideShow Support Update 1.0 and it looks to address an issue affecting the playback of video clips used in slideshows with Snow Leopard.
