Apple has introduced Aperture, an all-in-one post production tool that provides everything photographers need after the shoot. Aperture offers an advanced and incredibly fast RAW workflow that makes working with a camera’s RAW images as easy as JPEG, says the company.

Designed for the professional photographer, Aperture features powerful compare and select tools, non-destructive image processing, colour managed printing and custom Web and book publishing.

Aperture's compare and select tools allow photographers to easily sift through massive photo projects and quickly identify final selections. It can automatically groups sequences of photos into easy-to-manage Stacks based on the time interval between exposures. Photographers can navigate through entire projects full-screen, which can be extended to span multiple displays, tiling multiple images side-by-side for a faster, easier compare and select.

Using the 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 lets users build simple photo layouts – arranged, resized and compling images together in a "free-form space", says Apple.

RAW images are maintained natively throughout Aperture without any intermediate conversion process, and can be retouched using a suite of adjustment tools designed especially for photographers. Aperture’s non-destructive image processing engine never alters a single pixel of original photos so photographers have the power and flexibility to modify or delete changes at any point in the workflow.

Multiple versions of a single image can be made without duplicating files, so photographers can experiment without risk of overwriting the master image or using up large amounts of hard drive space and images can be launched directly into Adobe Photoshop for compositing and layer effects.
