As you import your images from your camera, it is important to organize them. This makes it easier in the future when you want to edit, store, and eventually archive photos. This is especially important when you have clients. You never want to be in a situation where you’ve lost or can’t find a client’s images. This article and tutorial video will show you how to import files, and help you decide where your files will “live” on your computer or storage media.
Apple’s Aperture 3 is the latest release of the software designed to help photographer’s manage, and edit their images. It’s direct competitor is Adobe’s Lightroom 3. Adobe’s Lightroom 3 runs on both PC and Mac platforms while Aperture is just made for Mac. If you have a Mac I would try both Lightroom and Aperture so that you can decide which works best for you.
Apple has launched its Mac App Store and is listing Aperture 3 – it’s professional photo management and editing software – to just $79 (US). You need to update your Mac to OS 10.6.6, which installs the new Mac App application, and purchase online.
When Aperture launched over five years ago it was about $500: Apple has dropped the price progressively, but this sees the price go from $200 to $79.
