Aperture's Gone Gold Master, Ready for Release
by Derrick Story
It's official. Apple has declared Gold Master for Aperture and the first shipments should go out next week. Word has it that the shrinkwrap box will include a printed manual and tutorial DVD.
The first thing I'll be reporting on is how well it performs on a PowerBook. I'll use a 17" 1.5 GHz model for testing. To tell you the truth, my biggest concern isn't Aperture's performance as much as it will be managing all of my Raw files on a skimpy 80GB drive. So I'll be looking at alternatives such as iPods and other portable hard drives to store my data.
this is great news. i've already taken on a few new clients since this has been announced and each one could have benefitted in a great way from using a piece of software like this. please post another entry when you have a tracking number!
Aperture Compatible with Which Cameras?
Happy to hear it will be out sooner rather than later! Which cameras will Aperture be compatible with? Specifically, which RAW formats will Aperture support?
Funnily enough, organizing my pictures is one thing I don't expect to need to worry about with Aperture, since, from everything I have read thus far, it appears to be totally unsuitable for that purpose.
