    Good points. I am interested in a replacement for iWeb. Any word on that…at all? Seems NO ONE has a viable replacement with the feature set, ease of use and integration that Apple demonstrated with iWeb.

    Totally agree with you there. For simple stuff it is great.

    I thinkI got a lot out of its capabilities on my extensive nature website (www.njnaturenotes.com). There IS a lot you can do with it if you're creative. What's the alternative with this ease of use and integration?

    Apple needs to fix iPhoto for iOS.  Manually-changed dates entered on the Mac version of iPhoto don't come across to the iOS version.

    Well it does look as though Apple is transitioning away from the pro app Aperture in favor of this consumer friendly, featureless (pro features that is) app.

    Yep, an update to iPhoto is a given, although where the heck the new version of iWork got to I'll never know, talk about long in the tooth......

    That would be brilliant.  There's many things that could be detected via software and suggestions could be made.


     


    Things like "The backlighting is so strong that the faces are shadowed.  Try retaking with a darker background so the subjects are brighter."  or "you have centered the subject.  Try putting the subject 1/3 of the way into the frame instead for a stronger composition."  


     


    I don't know if AI is good enough yet to be of a lot of help, but maybe some basic stuff could be done.


     


    How about "The whole scene is beige.  A brighly colored object could be a focal point"?  or "everything is small.  Try zooming in on some objets, in order to provide a stronger subject and less visual clutter"?  Is that stuff possible yet?



     


    Because there are a million YouTube videos out there that explain this as well as free tutorials. Why make an already not great app that much worse? Not a smart idea...

    He did nothing to deserve an infraction. It's a valid question.  Get off your power trip or people will find a blog where the mods don't need to get over themselves.

    infraction given.  This post serves nothing but to be an incendiary target.   We value insightful commentary here even if it runs 


    counter to what Apple fans like but look at your post here and ask yourself "what value did I bring"  


     


    I think you'll find the answer too close to zero.

    I seriously hope you're joking, considering the source and the context.

    They just added the beam wifi feature to iPhoto for iOS...allowing users to beam photos from an iOS device to any other device running iPhoto on the network.  Via wifi I can now transfer a single photo without using photo stream.  I am sure they will add this same feature to the new iPhoto.

    I hope Aperture gets the ability to stream photos to the ATV just like iPhoto. While this feature may be more consumer based, I can see some Pros using it to display client pictures on a HDTV.


    (Even better, stream photo galleries to the iPad)


     


    The lack of this feature is the only thing that kept me from switching to Aperture ages ago. I use Aperture 3 now, but miss this feature.

    So even Apple is copying Apple.

    How would a pro do this without their client having an ATV? I tend to keep my photos on my iPad and use the "Retina Display" as the viewing device. Again, why make a complicated app even more complicated? In case you missed it Aperture is a resource hog and is miles behind Lightroom at this moment. Unless Apple releases a major upgrade to Aperture soon, I am afraid I will have to move over to Adobe which seems to view their pro apps as viable.

    There is plenty to differentiate the two OSs. iOS is after all a subset of OS X with some touch specific controls that don't really make sense for OS X.


     


    I have differing uses for both and have owned a Mac since Early Mar 1984. It has changed a lot and is a powerhouse now. iOS is not intended to be able to manage projects within projects or multi-million lines of code compiles.


     


    I think you are way off base in saying " Why this slow and painful transition to iOS on the desktop?".

    I'm talking about clients who go into a Pro's office/showroom. Not a Pro who visits a client in their home/workplace.


     


    How is viewing the photos on ATV, ala iPhoto, making Aperture more complicated? 


     


    While Aperture may be a resource hog, it works well enough for our needs (I'm not a pro), especially with plugins from Topaz labs.

    Sorry for the delay to your reply. Was a bit busy...


     


    1.Fair enough but usually I have seen most situations where a client might see your site and you go to THEIR office with your portfolio. But okay.


    2. I see Aperture as one massive resource hog. It just is. Has been this way from day one it seems. Adding anything to it will only make it worse.


    3. Aperture is missing some major features that LR has that are needed by pros, advanced enthusiast, etc... Aperture is simply not up to LR's standard...

    I found that Aperture does indeed stream to the ATV. You need to go to the Advanced Menu option in iTunes and under "Choose Photos to Share" you can select Aperture.


    Not that obvious, but it's there. 


     


    As for resources, I've found that Aperture has used up to 8GBs of my 12GB memory. Hasn't been an issue yet, but it will be interesting to see what happens when I import 46,000 images into it. :-)
