So with the introduction of Apples new App Store came Aperture 3 at the knock-down price of £44.95, question. Who hasn't bought it? Thought as much. I'd downloaded the trial version ages ago and really didn't get to play with it much before I'd used up the 30 day trial period. I've got it installed on the Mac Pro and the Mac Book now and last week I was experimenting with the tethered capability on the laptop, okay it's not the quickest model and it's only churning on 2GB of memory so I was experiencing some hang time between images but on the whole it was an enjoyable experience. I set up one of my eldest sons toys that Father Christmas dropped by last month and played with the lighting a bit to get the effect I was after. I have to say that my adventures in Apertureland look set to continue, having figured out by trial and error and later by watching the excellent how-to videos that Apple provide on their site, I'm really taking to this software.
