I just discovered a pile of user-submitted tips (that’s the ones by you guys) that were never published. I promise, this will ALL get better with the new site, where User Tips and ApertureExpert tips will be integrated together. At least that’s the idea.

In the meantime, I’ll be releasing these User Tips over the next few days, starting with…

Quicker Lift/Stamp Workflow in Aperture 3” by Nathan Smith

I prefer Aperture workflow me too, the only think I love of LR is the highlight/shadow algorithm, much more efficient in my opinion. Also noise reduction is better than Aperture.

But how to disable the stamp of brushes in Aperture? Is there a way? Of cause the brush areas are specific to the photo, in the 99% of the cases there is no sense of stamping the areas.

If you don’t want to copy over any local “brushed in” adjustments using Lift and Stamp … once you have “lift” the adjustments … Click the Adjustments toggle in the Lift & Stamp dialog box … click on the brushed-in adjustment to highlight it and hit the delete key … this will remove the adjustment from the list. Then when you “Stamp” other images, your local adjustments will not be carried over.

Desk Notes,

Butch explains how to remove that effect all together, but if you want to maintain the adjustment itself, but brush in a new mask, then just lift and stamp, then open the brush controls, and select “apply to entire photo” or “clear from entire photo” under the gear menu.

Especially around 41 min, but take the time to watch the whole video…..interesting.

Thanks, I hope to see it soon. Yes I’m using a nick name, but don’t worry, I’m not a spammer.

@ApertureExpert: not signed the mailing list, but I follow you from twitter.
I saw Nik offer, very impressive bundle, strange Google bought them.

I’m interested in Viveza and Color FX.

Today I spent my spare hour to see the video you told me some days ago.
I found this man very inspiring me, and be proud to know Aperture is one of the better raw converter for pro-end users. I’m still an amateur user but very passionate, due to my baby daughter that I love to shot with my camera. She is my learning book!

Of course i will keep an eye to this website looking forwar for new interesting focuses.
