Aperture upgrade drops

Written by David Stellmack

Over 100 new features plus a new interface


Apple has released a new version of its popular image editing software called Aperture. Now known as Aperture 2, the new version boasts an impressive 100 new features with a new streamlined user interface. Aperture 2 now allows the user to switch between the viewer and the browser mode on the fly, which according to Apple, adds to the intuitive nature of the program.

At the heart of the new upgrade, however, is the new image processing engine which, according to Apple, is able to better handle large files which are becoming more commonplace with the continued increased resolutions of today’s digital camera. With the new image processing engine using the quick preview mode, Aperture 2 can handle large pictures to be viewed in rapid succession without having to wait for the entire file to load. While Apple is claiming that it is near instantaneous results, we will have to see it to believe it.

Aperture 2 will sell for US$199 for the full version, while users of the previous version of Aperture will be able to upgrade for US$99.
