So, Apple finally found it important enough to upgrade Aperture.  I know quite a few people who will be looking forward to that.

According to Apple’s Site there are…

Over 100 new features in Aperture 2, including:

  • Image adjustment controls such as Highlight Recovery, Definition, Vibrancy, and Vignette
  • Retouch tool with soft-edged brush to remove unwanted elements from photos.
  • Next-generation RAW image processing for highest-quality images
  • Quick Preview mode for rapid-fire photo browsing
  • Simplified user interface that maximizes screen space and provides direct access to your iPhoto library from within Aperture
  • Integration with .Mac Web Gallery to instantly publish your photos, allowing visitors to view and download images.”

Enjoy.
