apple-aperture-3-gear-patrolApple has just rolled out the latest iteration to its semi-pro/pro photo management and editing software. Aperture 3 ($199, $99 upgrade) brings it with 200 new features including Faces (facial recognition), Places (geotagging), and Brushes: an enhancement tool that lets photographers and editors paint, use filters, and make adjustments directly onto their images.

Aperture 3 is 64-bit enabled which allows the latest, Intel-based Macs to take full advantage of their multi-threaded processors. If you’ve outgrown iPhoto, then you’ll want to strongly consider Aperture 3 (if you’re not already an Adobe Lightroom user), especially with its iPhoto import tools. Aperture 3 also makes it easy to manage multiple photo libraries on multiple hard drives, create professional slideshows and books, and preview images and video live before they’re even fully imported.
