Recovering Lost Nik Software Presets (And Others?) Following Aperture 3.4 Upgrade

We recommended that you back up your 3rd party plug-in presets prior to the Aperture 3.4 upgrade, but of course many had already upgraded or never saw the notice. I don’t fully understand why, but I’ve been told it has something to do with “sandboxing” in how Aperture 3.4 (and Mountain Lion, perhaps?) handles 3rd party software or software that accesses other applications (i.e.

Yes yes, I know it’s a US holiday, but we can still celebrate around the world, can’t we? ;-)

There is a nice little 20%-off Labor Day sale happening now, along with a new Super Bundle of all Live Training videos for just $40 — combine that with the sale and it’s only $32 for all 22 videos! That’s like getting seven for free, or $1.45 each, or… well you get the idea. Pretty unbeatable, really!

Import & Browse Test: Aperture vs Lightroom vs Photo Mechanic

Thomas and I discussed this post at length, before he even ran the tests. Should we do it, or shouldn’t we? This site is not in the business of proving Aperture is better or worse than anything else; it’s here to teach Aperture users how to get the most from Aperture, and that’s it. However given what a critical piece of the workflow this is for professional photographers (fast imports), and that this is a significant feature improvement in Aperture 3.3 (even if Apple isn’t marketing it as such), we decided to do it. And once you’re comparing Aperture 3.2 to 3.3, you have to compare to Photo Mechanic as well, which has long been regarded as the gold standard for speedy imports and selects. And once you add Photo Mechanic, you can’t ignore the 300 pound gorilla in the room, Lightroom. So, we decided to compare them all. And as you’ll see, we even gave Lightroom a more than fair shake, trying to improve its result based off feedback from former Lightroom users.

I’ll do a proper look at this later, and be sure to talk about how to best integrate it into an Aperture workflow, but just in case you haven’t seen it yet… Nik Software (the maker of my favorite plug-ins for Aperture, and no, I’m not paid to say that!) also makes one of my favorite iApps, called snapseed, available for both iPhone and iPad.

What Metadata Is Retained or Lost When Sending to Photoshop from Aperture?

This question came up on a discussion on the Yahoo Group ASMPproAdvice (if you’re not a member, and are serious about the business of photography, I highly recommend it). When opening a picture in Photoshop from Aperture (using the “Open in Editor” command), what IPTC and EXIF data is retained, and what is lost? So I decided to do a little test.
