More about Aperture 3

I’ve only had a couple of days to play with Apple’s new Aperture 3 – released earlier this week.

Overall, I’m impressed. Aperture’s new interface design is much cleaner and simpler than earlier versions – and the new Quick FIx adjustments and the Quick Brushes are great! The full screen browser does a great job on my Mac Cinema Display.

I’ve only got one frustration so far. Why is there no gradient tool in Aperture 3? For landscape photographers, the gradient tool in Lightroom has been an easy way to bring down the sky in a graduated fashion. It’s seems so obvious that Aperture 3 should have a gradient tool – but it doesn’t. Huh? How could a gradient tool not have been included in this major update?
