There are features that have been long awaited and mysteriously absent from previous versions, like a curves adjustment tool. This review covers some of my favorite features, as well as issues that some Aperture users have experienced. Faces and Places One thing is clear in this new release: To do this, Aperture 3 now has new ways to organize images using Faces based on image analysis and user input and Places based on geographic location information , both of which will be familiar to iPhoto users. Places can be used to link images to a map of the world; the map has various levels of magnification, and an ever-growing, impressive database of worldwide locations.
You cannot easily use created (as opposed to recorded) footage as any change requires a re-import and re-edit. fun, but I sure would be ticked if I made a living with it. Note the price is not great - the last upgrade I got for fcs was 299 and that included all the apps as I recall, not just fcp.
