Aperture 3.2 Update Integrates iCloud, Enhances Photo Stream

Apple has rolled out a new update for its advanced photography application, Aperture, elevating it to version 3.2. This update transitions all references of MobileMe to now support iCloud, enhancing the app’s integration with Apple’s cloud services.

Additionally, it incorporates Photo Stream compatibility, enabling automatic synchronization of photos across all devices registered with iCloud when photos are captured on iOS devices.

The update also addresses several bugs, which are outlined as follows:

  • Fixes an issue where the “Loading” indicator might reappear in the Viewer during photo cropping

  • Ensures that Aperture reopens in Full Screen mode if it was in that mode upon the last exit

  • Enhances the pinch-to-zoom gesture to automatically trigger Zoom mode in the Viewer

  • Adds the ability to navigate between photos in the Viewer using left and right swipe gestures

  • Allows users to select Microsoft Outlook as the default email application for sending photos directly from Aperture

  • Addresses a crash issue when using adjustment brushes in OS X Lion

  • Ensures the Loupe tool accurately shows magnification levels from 50-100%

  • Resolves a color profile mismatch on externally edited images in OS X Lion

  • Updates the Import window to offer an option to delete photos from iPhone and iPad after import

  • Corrects cursor icons for the Lift & Stamp tool in Split View and Viewer only modes

Users who purchased Aperture through the Mac App Store can download this update directly from there. Those who have the disc version can update via Software Update or by downloading it directly from Apple’s support site.

It’s worth noting that due to a high volume of software updates released by Apple today, the download page on Apple’s support site may experience some delays.
