I just purchased On One Perfect Suite 8.5 as a plug in for Aperture. Does anyone have suggestions for a workflow?
Thanks Scott. I’ve watched and enjoyed your OnOne tutorial. What you seem to imply is to ignore the effects & brush brick in Aperture. Or do you utilize them on the return trip to Aperture?
That’s interesting. Most comparisons of Aperture vs. LightRoom give the nod to LR for sharpening. I print my landscapes mostly in 13”x19” using the Aperture sharpening for print but I notice the Perfect has a nice sharpening tool for printing as well. Have you ever tried as comparison of the two for printing? I ask this as I doubt you would appreciate the difference on the monitor.
That's a good question… a comparison of output sharpening across a variety of tools (Aperture, OnOne, Nik Sharpener Pro, your-favorite-tool-here).
I “punt” when it comes to printing :) I make the image look good on screen and leave printing to a lab. Occasionally, I print a photo directly from Aperture, although at smaller sizes, no larger than 8x10.
Hopefully others in the forums can share their experiences with output sharpening.
As I mentioned in another of the user questions, I am somewhat vague on what RAW conversions are taking place where. So I have been following somewhat the same workflow as Scott… Aperture for WB, Exposure, somtimes Curves and/or Highlights etc. I then round trip to OnOne. However, since version 8.5 has improved browser, I have been considering going straight from camera to OnOne. What would I lose by not going through Aperture as far as RAW conversion? I do not have enough images to require a very dramatic DAM system.
