I’ll be getting my 2.0 copy this week. In the mean time, I downloaded the trial copy while waiting and I have to say that in the few minutes I played around, I was very impressed. The new database code makes the whole program feel faster.
Other new features I really like: Export photos to Flickr, SmugMug, Gallery, Zenfolio, or Picasa, Sync directly to iPhone, iPod, or Apple TV, Show the location of your photos on Google Maps if your camera embeds GPS data.
This is no doubt an exciting update that will intensify the attention placed on Aperture. As a long-time Aperture user and advocate, I have to say – it’s about time.
