    Default Aperture 2.1 Avaliable

    Aperture 2.1 updates various features of the application and addresses issues related to performance and overall stability. The updates include the following:

    Dodge & Burn Plug-in. A sample plug-in is pre-installed, taking advantage of the Edit API introduced in Aperture 2.0. The plug-in adds brush-based tools for Dodge (Lighten), Burn (Darken), Contrast, Saturation, Sharpen and Blur.
    Customize Default Adjustment Set. You can now specify which adjustments appear by default in the Adjustments Inspector/HUD.
    Updated Crop Tool. A simplified UI makes it easier to preserve an image's original aspect ratio, match the aspect ratio of your display, or use one of the standard preset aspect ratios.
    Sorting in All Projects View. A contextual menu allows you to sort the All Projects view in ascending or descending date order.
    Show on Map. A contextual menu allows you to choose the Show on Map by right-clicking (or Control-clicking) on an image that contains GPS data.
    Access to Toolbar on Second Display. When using multiple displays in Full Screen mode, the Full Screen toolbar is now accessible on a second display.
    "Snapshots" book theme. This additional theme includes new "photo border" frames in which to place images.
    Flip Images. You can now flip images horizontally or vertically within Aperture.
    Vignette. The range of gamma and exposure settings available has been expanded.
    Save Books as JPEG or TIFF images. Automator actions have been added to Save as PDF pop-up menu in the Print Book window to automatically generate JPEG or TIFF images from book pages.
    Update EXIF from Master. This command allows Aperture to reread EXIF from a master images after they have been imported.
    Extended AppleScript support. The "Reveal" verb in the AppleScript dictionary has been extended to include containers such as projects and albums.
    The update includes fixes that impact the a number of areas, including:

    Image import
    Image migration

    "The update "Aperture Update" can't be installed."

    The digital signature is borked.

    After two attempts, same error. I'll try again tomorrow.

    Same thing here.... Glad to see it's not just me.. However the same thing happened yesterday when trying to install Safari and iTunes updates on a PC! Maybe the update server has cracked the shits

    I purchased Aperture only 2 weeks ago - since then have had over an update a week.....makes me feel like I am getting value for money - especially now with the plug ins manager......no buyers remorse here.

    It's giving me less and less reasons to drop into Photoshop now.
    But I'd still love to be able to export page layouts (from light table) or book pages as very high resolution and dpi specified files for import into PS so that I can use my own favoured book company.
    THis is the shortcomings of Aperture - the very limited uses externally of the files (and the PDF to jpeg conversion that's now available from "PRINT BOOK" makes a very lo-res file!!).
    Overall though I'm thoroughly enjoying this iteration of Aperture. My times for corrections and ratings have dropped dramatically since 1.5 on the Dual 2Ghz G5. The MacPro w/ 8800 w/ 2.1 just flies!

    I agree with Blinder, much less reason to use photoshop now than ever before.
    I'm a little upset that the Print Book option will only allow low res conversion to jpeg though. I've not tried it yet, so am still hopeful that you've overlooked something Blinder.
    Out of interest, who's your fav book company?

    I'm afraid the conversion was very anemic monty_e.
    I use Asukabook via their Australian distributors @ pixel perfect (Sydney based pro lab).
