Aperture 3 gives you powerful yet easy-to-use tools to refine images, showcase your photography, and manage massive libraries on your Mac. It’s pro performance with iPhoto simplicity. Aperture, if you're new to Mac, is iPhoto's big brother. It's not quite Photoshop, but its almost everything you need to tweak and organize photos. Along with usual stuff like messing with the white balance, applying filters and creating albums, there's a lot of new, neat features too. Face recongition and geotagging (and the organization thereof) are the two main 'contemporary' additions, while some nice new brushes are great for touching up photos. Aperture lets you store your images wherever and however you like — directly in Aperture 3, on external drives, or in their original folders. Choose to import RAW and JPEG images together or as separate images so you can work with them individually. And Aperture 3 can automatically back up your master images to a second drive during import.
