Apple Aperture 3 Apple Aperture 3

Apple has developed Aperture 3, the latest version of its raw-conversion and photo management software. It offers faster organization of a large number of images and offers more than 200 new features. Other improvements to this version include a new "faces and places" option that enables face detection and geotagging. Besides using recorded GPS information, the camera allows users to assign locations by dragging and dropping photos onto a map. An improved slideshow feature now combines photos and HD videos, while the brush feature allows users to "paint" effects on images. At the same time, Apple has released a Digital Camera RAW Compatibility Update for its Aperture 3 and iPhoto ‘09 software that extends RAW support to Canon PowerShot S90, Leica D-LUX 4, Panasonic DMC-G1, DMC-GH1 and LX3 cameras.

Mac users who already own Aperture will be able to upgrade for $99, while new customers can buy the program for $199. A free 30-day trial also is offered.
