Apple has recently released a bug fix update for Aperture.  Version 3.5.1 is a free update for all Aperture 3 users.  You can get the update here.

Here’s what fixed:

  • White Balance now works as expected when using the Temperature & Tint eyedropper tool
  • Fixes an issue that could cause the rectangles indicating detected faces to appear incorrectly
  • When a metadata field is selected, the cursor now remains active in that field when using the Command and arrow keys to move between photos
  • Includes stability improvements

In case you missed it, the 3.5 release also added these features:

  • Adds support for iCloud Photo Sharing, including the ability to post videos to shared photo streams and to have multiple subscribers contribute to a shared stream
  • The Places feature now uses Apple maps to display photo locations
  • New integration with SmugMug, with support for publishing and syncing galleries directly to a SmugMug account
  • Adds support for iOS 7 camera filters applied to photos imported from iOS devices
  • Fixes an issue that sometimes resulted in Retouch adjustments not being applied to exported images
  • Addresses an issue that could cause the black and white points in Curves to shift incorrectly when using the eyedropper tools
  • Fixes an issue that prevented caption data from being embedded correctly when exporting versions of some RAW file types
  • Improves reliability when adding names to Faces
  • Addresses an issue that could cause Aperture to stop responding after adjusting a very large panorama
  • Fixes an issue that could prevent memory cards or hard disks from ejecting properly after import when clicking the Delete Items button
  • Improves reliability of slideshows on a 15-inch Macbook Pro with Retina display
  • Addresses an issue that could cause thumbnails to display incorrectly in the iLife Media Browser
  • Videos up to three minutes long can now be shared to Flickr
  • Captions instead of version names are now synced between Aperture and Facebook for newly-created albums
  • Improves reliability when printing a light table
  • Fixes an issue that could prevent adjusted images from being published to My Photo Stream
  • Includes stability and performance improvements

Here was our take on the recent update.

  1. Hate to say it, but the instability I had in Aperture after moving to Mountain Lion, and the amazing $10 a month pricing Adobe offered for Lightroom and Photoshop CC made me jump ship. If this update makes my Aperture Libraries stable, then I can move from managed to referenced libraries – right now, I can’t keep the app open long enough to do that – or import my recent jobs – or export my existing work … Bought Aperture 1.0 off the shelf in an Apple store many years ago, moving to Lightroom was a tough call.
