Aperture (software)

Aperture (software)

Aperture is a photo editing and management computer program that was developed by Apple for the OS X operating system, first released in 2005, and currently available in its App Store. The software handles a number of tasks common in post-production work such as importing and organizing image files, applying corrective adjustments, displaying slideshows, and printing photographs.

Features of Aperture include non-destructive editing, organization of photographs by keyword, faces (using face detection and recognition), and places (using GPS metadata embedded in image files), brushes for applying effects (such as dodge and burn, skin smoothing, and polarization), and exporting to several popular websites, including Flickr, Facebook, SmugMug, and Apple's defunct MobileMe service. The program has been widely reviewed by independent parties.

On January 6, 2011, Apple announced its availability on the Mac App Store. Aperture 3.4, the latest version of the software, was released on September 19, 2012 and runs on Intel-based Mac computers.

Famous quotes containing the word aperture:

    Animals used to provide a lowlife way to kill and get away with it, as they do still, but, more intriguingly, for some people they are an aperture through which wounds drain. The scapegoat of olden times, driven off for the bystanders’ sins, has become a tender thing, a running injury. There, running away ... is me: hurt it and you are hurting me.
    Edward Hoagland (b. 1932)
