hi, newbie here to the forum. After years of using PS at work, I am so relieved to NOT have to use it at home for my Pro work–what a bloated overrated whale that thing has become.
While I have picked up Aperture pretty fast, and love it, I'd like to hear what many of you think about monitor/printer calibration software that works well with Macs and Aperture. There are so many differing opinions out there regarding products, my head is spinning. Willing to spend up to $500 US.
I am running Aperture 3 on a May 2011 iMac quad core i5 with 12gigs of RAM, 1TB HD, and the latest Snow Leopard OS 10.6.7 I think. Printer is a Canon Pro9000 mkII, and I only use oem consumables.
Also, if anyone can recc good color management reading that's NOT geared to PS or Elements–or “application agnostic”–that'd be great as well. Cheers! JB
