Apple updates Aperture, Front Row for iLife '08

Apple on Tuesday offered updates to its professional photo software Aperture and to Front Row, the software that lets newer Mac users navigate music, video and pictures on their Mac using an Apple Remote. Both updates are intended to facilitate a smoother transition to iLife 08, Apple’s newly released consumer software suite.

Aperture provides professional photographers and others who have outgrown iPhoto extensive photo organization, management and retouching capabilities, but that doesn’t mean it’s completely separate from iPhoto. In fact, Aperture is designed to work with iPhoto as well, and the new 1.5.4 update “is required for compatibility with iLife ‘08,” according to Apple. It measures 129MB.

Front Row, meanwhile, has been updated to version 1.3.1. This new release has been provided specifically “for improved iPhoto compatibility,” according to the release notes.

Both software updates can be downloaded from Apple’s Web site, or can be retrieved using the Software Update system preference.
