Apple has released a new version of Aperture, the company’s pro-grade photography software, for Mac OS X Lion and Mac OS X Snow Leopard.
Weighing in at 635.76 MB, Aperture 3.2 delivers compatibility and support for iCloud and iOS 5, the newest major software products released by Apple.
The new version works with Snow Leopard systems (10.6.2) and up, and delivers fixes for several minor stability, performance and compatibility issues, according to Apple.
However, by looking at the release notes, avid users of Aperture would hardly deem these fixes as insignificant.
For example, Aperture 3.2 resolves an issue that could cause the "Loading" indicator to reappear in the Viewer when cropping a photo.
The software now automatically relaunches into Full Screen mode if the application was quit in Full Screen mode, and the pinch-to-zoom gesture now activates Zoom mode in the Viewer automatically.
Users can now employ left and right swipe gestures to navigate between photos in the Viewer, and the app now integrates with Microsoft Outlook as the application used by Aperture for emailing photos. Customers can select this option in the Aperture preferences.
There’a also a new feature to be had. Apple reveals that after importing photos from iPhone and iPad, the import window now includes an option to delete photos.
