Apple updates Aperture to 3.5.1; fixes face detection and more

Apple has posted an update to Aperture, its professional photo cataloging and editing software. The new version is available for download from the Mac App Store.

Aperture provides pro-level cataloging and metadata management capabilities, along with nondestructive editing tools and easy workflow with external image editors like Photoshop.

New in the 3.5.1 release is a fix for Temperature and Tint White Balance. Face detection overlays now work correctly. An issue has been resolved involving metadata field entry when arrowing between photos. Stability improvements have also been made.

Apple makes some of the best pro editing apps but it's a little pricey for someone like me who's not a pro photographer

Great update. Definitely helped resolved these issues I've been having with aperture. Hoping for a new paint job to the application within the next few years.

Thanks for this informative article. I have been toying with the idea of trying out aperture for a while and the might just be the nudge I needed!

Still can't figure out if I need Aperture or should I just stick to iPhoto and Pixelmator for simple photo editing.

Tried Aperture a few years ago, never liked it, so I switched to Lightroom. Even with the new updates I still don't like Aperture. Lightroom fits my workflow better, especially with it integrating with Photoshop.

I like Aperture. Definitely prefer it to iPhoto and find it very handy for organising and editing my photos.

If you want to see you Aperture (or iPhoto) library on your iPad or iPhone without having to transfer it all with iTunes (if you even have space!) you can use PhotoScope:-

http://photoscopeapp.com
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/photoscope/id776186713?mt=8&uo=&at=10l3V...

... this even lets you rate and flag your photos directly from your iPad (or iPhone) as well as seeing all the metadata. It's very handy for reviewing photos you've just taken.
