  1. It’s going to be Aperture 2.0, and it’s going to be amazing. Integrated inito Apple’s other apps just like iPhoto! We’re going to kick major hiney! Lightroom is going to look like Photoshop Elements compared to Photoshop in comparison. On a Mac Pro, it’s going to fly!

    1: Multi-user

    2: Round trip to Photoshop

    3: Multiple versions of a photo sent to Photoshop at the same time, each wtih a different curve to emphasize shadow, mid-tone, and highlight so you can improve the photo using alpha channels and masks.

    Look out Adobe!


  2. IF it is an Aperture update, itll be interesting to see the direction the app is taking, ie is there any clues as to it moving in on photoshops turf, or is it staying on its current trajectory.

  3. Too funny, R! Maybe it’s the Mac Tablet!!!

    I also think it’s Aperture 2.0. I’ve talked to a few photographers who have played around with 1.1 and like it but are waiting for 2.0 to come out before buying. The $300 price drop tempted them A LOT at the time, though.
