    Will you use Aperture? From a casual photographers viewpoint, it looks like an amazing program. Support for dual monitors :bigthumb:

    that looks like a sweet program. I'll continue to use photoshop but I wouldn't mind having it.

    I just watched the quicktime sales pitch and was impressed.

    I won't be the first in line, but see myself buying it after they work the bugs out of V1.0.

    I'm a retoucher/illlustrator by trade and photography is a semi passionate hobby. That explains why I bought the Canon 350D (Rebel XT) instead of the 20D.

    I'll try to get a grant for my school's yearbook program. With that i'll hopefully be able to get A quad and this.

    I can only hope.

    it's probably a lot less useful to people who don't need to work in RAW constantly. Apparently though, there is no app out there that filled this niche until now, i.e. no one developed a pro-level RAW workflow application, not even Adobe. Pretty cool :cool: It's not trying to be photoshop, it's more like a new class of app, trying to fill a need that has been band-aided by the overlap of existing photo apps.

    Its not made to replace photoshop, its made to supplement it, develop the photos (digitally) with aperture and then open them into photoshop and do all your editing there (besides all the raw adjustments you did in aperture)

    the main competitor of aperture is phase one's capture one software which i own and use for shooting raw

    :werd: if you watch the demos, Aperture is designed so that you can launch images into photoshop on-the-fly, do corrective work or whatever else you need to do there, and save -- Aperture receives the updated changes in real-time without the need to close the file... AND it keeps the nondestructive RAW editing you've done to the file as well, even after the changes committed by photoshop! Fucking sweet :coold:

    I can't really describe it well, but watch the "nondestructive edit" movie to see what I mean. I dunno how they have parallel workflows going (i.e. Aperture and PS at the same time) but it's amazing.
