New in Aperture 1.5:
  • Choose how you’d like to store images: copy them into a managed Aperture Library or store them on hard drives, network volumes, or CD/DVDs and have Aperture import them in place, creating a “reference” to their physical location while acquiring them for use in Aperture
  • Browse albums, Smart Albums, or your entire Aperture Library using the Media Browser in iLife ’06 and iWork ’06 applications
  • Generate industry-standard XMP sidecar files containing all metadata when exporting master images; or batch export metadata as a tab-delimited text file
  • Precisely adjust hue, saturation, and luminance on a color-by-color basis using the red, yellow, green, cyan, blue, and magenta controls in the new Color tool
  • Hone sharpness with the new, luminance-based Edge Sharpen tool, which offers precise control and a three-pass algorithm
  • Create Metadata Presets to speed the assignment of any combination of metadata, eliminating errors and redundant typing
  • Use onscreen controls on the new Loupe to dial in magnification (100- to 1600%), select focus mode (follow Loupe or follow cursor), control Loupe size, and turn on/off display of Color values
  • Manage images (both copied and referenced) using new file-management tool for relocating and checking status of images in your Library
