Posted by: Dennis Hissink Monday 2nd, October 2006

Apple, who was noticeably well visited in general, introduced a new version of Aperture at its press meeting: Apple Aperture 1.5. Most of us had expected Apple to come up with a new update, but were not sure about what exactly would be improved or renewed. What was remarkable was the seamless integration with iLife '06 and iWork '06, giving permanent direct access to pictures. There was also support for XMP meta data and an integrated export-API, with which Aperture workflow can be extended with programs and applications from other manufacturers. During the Photokina there were demonstrations of all sorts of plug-ins from leading companies, including Getty Images, iStockphoto, Pictage, Flickr, PhotoShelter, DigitalFusion, Soundslides en Connected Flow. These plug-ins offer a series of print, publication and storage workflows that use this new architecture.

Software become more and more intelligent and needed in the digital imaging workflow. Software becomes also powerful, and especially the application software for cell phones and the new iPad is a good example of what benefit software can have on today’s electronic devices and the life of a consumer. Social network platforms also benefit of support Apps that can be downloaded directly to your smartphone. More specialized software for various OS systems, such as editing software like Aperture, Photoshop and Lightroom, give both the consumer and (semi-) professional photographer / videographer a perfect tool to create their favorite image of video clip. The intelligent software inside the camera or camcorder gives the consumer access to effects or a quality that could never be reached before without having semi-pro editing skills. Software plays an important role in today’s and future imaging world and Photokina 2010 will show you why!
