Group DescriptionUsing Apple’s Aperture software.
Think of Aperture as “Final Cut Pro” for photographers. See that green cast? That’s the envy in the PC World. Nothing a little eyedropper tool in Aperture and Core Image won’t fix.
The current version of Aperture is 3.1. Aperture 3.0 retails for $199. Remember, that there is an education price of $149. Upgrades from Aperture 2.0 are $99
