Aperture: The Color Tool

A couple of days ago, I blogged about the release of Aperture 1.5 and how I really dig the refinements and performance boost. Using the photos at right as a [macro — hey, I’m a happy flower photographer and I’m not afraid to admit it] example, I was able to use the color tools to refine a photo in ways that I couldn’t before.

I’m not the only one digging the new stuff. Duncan — a professional photographer from which I have learned a huge amount — takes on the Aperture color controls and also offers a comparison with similar features in Adobe’s lightroom Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.

Neat stuff. Now I need to go and adjust a few photos given what I just learned…

    I wholeheartedly agree — the new color tools are spectacular. I’ve been using them in exactly the same manner as you have, tweaking background colors and boosting per-color saturation.

    Keep posting photos, I always look forward to them.
