Agreed, I use Aperture as well, its very versatal, but I hate exporting and then opening in Photoshop to do major tweaks. Plus Photoshop can't read Aperture library's, i need a better way to manage my pictures..animeghost said:I prefer using Aperture, it is much better in photo management and light editing works. For detail editing work, I would go for photoshop.
You could have been writing about me there as well. iPhoto is a nice program but Aperture is just so much better.tofuconfetti said:I've been a photography buff since I was 16 (now mid fifties). I started digital photography at the back end of a telescope with a camera that looked like a metal brick with a fan in it. In other words, at a very basic level. Still having the restriction of using film in my mind, when I converted my land photography to digital, I now take hundreds of images when I used to take "two rolls" (36x2). Then end result is about 80 Gb worth (or more) of images accumulated over years, many scanned from old 35mm and 2.25x2.25" Kodachrome slides.
There is one tool which I prefer OVER Photoshop and that is Aperture. It is iPhoto on steroids and controls the printing process better than Photoshop in my opinion. Aperture's organizing abilities are uncanny and if you are a database guy it makes perfect sense. Since I got it two years ago, I haven't looked back.
If you get a chance to try it, do. It's an excellent tool. Apple did that one very right.
