Aperture 3 is described by Apple as ‘designed for iPhoto users who want to get more out of their photos’. That pretty much sums it up. It’s an excellent and powerful tool for refining images, showcasing your work and managing massive libraries on your Mac.
This new version 3.2.3 addresses and fixes the usual bugs but perhaps most notably, like iPhoto, it now allows users to delete photos from their Photo Stream. That’s the iCloud service and enables users to sync photos across their various enabled devices. You can check out the full details of this update below in What’s New?
This is a free update but if you haven’t already purchased Aperture, you can do so here. It retails for $79.99/£54.99.
