Apple introduces Aperture

Aperture from Apple is the first all-in-one post production tool for photographers. It offers an advanced and fast RAW workflow that makes working with a camera’s RAW images as easy as JPEG. Aperture features powerful compare and select tools, nondestructive image processing, color managed printing and custom Web and book publishing.

Unique compare and select tools in Aperture allow photographers to easily sift through massive photo projects and quickly identify their final selections. Aperture is the first application that automatically groups sequences of photos into easy-to-manage Stacks based on the time interval between exposures. Aperture allows photographers to navigate through entire projects in a full-screen workspace that can be extended to span multiple displays, tiling multiple images side-by-side for a faster, easier compare and select. With Aperture’s Loupe magnifying tool, portions of images can be examined in fine detail without having to zoom and pan across large files. In addition, a virtual Light Table provides the ideal canvas for building simple photo layouts, allowing them to be arranged, resized and piled together in a free-form space.

According to Apple, Aperture is not competing with Adobe Photoshop.

I must say that Aperture looks awesome. The fact that it lets you edit RAW files in non-destructive behaviours is great. No only that but the way it manages files and projects seem like a welcome feature to those "pro" photographers.

Having said all that, it does have some hefty requirements. I'm sure that if u were to get a Quad G5, then you would pretty much won't be having any problem at all. Man, those Quad looks insane lol.

The requirements are quite extreme, I don't even know when I'll be able to try it out because of them :)
