Apple released an update to its professional photography workflow application Aperture, bringing the most current version to 1.5.3. The update addresses issues related to overall reliability and performance, according to the company.
Specific fixes include reviews now update properly when images are sent to an external editor; Leaf Aptus 22 and Aptus 75 images are now imported with the correct orientation; and when folders are imported as projects, the folder structure is now correctly preserved when identically named subfolders are included in the hierarchy.
Aperture 1.5.3 also corrects problems reconnecting referenced images that have been externally edited. Finally, setting the ColorSync profile in the Aperture Print dialog now correctly suppresses color management settings in the Mac OS X Print dialog.
Aperture 1.5.3 is available from Apple’s Web site.
