Aperture 3.3/3.4 New Features Workshop

Hey folks! It’s time for another new training workshop. This one is an addendum to the very popular 4+ hour “Work Like a Pro Photographer in Aperture 3” workshop. It’s all about the big changes in Aperture 3.3 and 3.4, including explanations of the Unified Library, the enhanced White Balance tool, Auto Enhance, Photo Stream and Shared Photo Stream, and more. Basically, if it’s new since 3.3… it’s in this workshop.

The new training is creatively called “Aperture 3.3/3.4 New Features Workshop” and is available NOW.

But why release this now?

I can hear you all… “why on earth would you release this; isn’t Aperture 4/X gonna be here soon?”. Look, we’ve all been waiting and hoping for that for a long time. How do you get it to rain? Wash your car. How do you get your meal to arrive in a restaurant? Go to the bathroom. So I figured, what the heck… maybe if I put all this time and effort into an Aperture 3.3/3.4 addendum course, maybe just maybe the next major release will come out soon!

So yeah, it might be silly… but if it gets something else shipping, then so be it. It’s all about sacrifice!! hehe

Just purchased latest workshop. You amaze me sometimes Joseph, with the Aperture tips you discover. Very handy. Thanks.

Thanks Steve, I appreciate that!

Over the holidays I upgraded to a new iPhone and to 10.8 Mountain Lion. So now I’m turning on the new features: got Photostream going last week, and upgraded from Aperture 3.2 to 3.4 this week. This video was exactly what I needed, at just the right time. Took a little over an hour…
1 – 1.5 hours in total? The information is broken out into three sections with chapters for each topic. Clearly lays out the differences between the old Aperture I was used to, and the new one.

It’s great, thank you Joseph.


Just started watching the latest additions for Aperture. As always great job. I am using the iPad 2 and then viewing on a 40” LED Sharp TV via Airplay. The quality for viewing is fantastic. It is fun relaxing in a recliner and watching the videos.



It doesn’t appear that the video addresses the new Raw Fining tuning options (ie how much sharpening and detail to add/remove?….where can I read about these?

Thanks everyone, glad you’re enjoying.

Matt, the fine tuning options are different for every camera so covering them isn’t very practical but I agree, I should so something. I’ll look into it again, thanks.

Thanks Joseph! I’ve got a 7D and have read the raw fining tuning has a lot of functionality and not to just let Apple decide it for you….seems to be incredibly powerful to determine how RAW data is processed!
I wonder how much time Apple actually puts into each camera model? Wish camera manufacturers could just provide them with in depth detail on the Raw processing so Apple didn’t have to determine how they ‘think’ it should be.


Well, keep in mind that there is no right or wrong decode of the file. Think of a RAW file like food ingredients. There are 10,000 ways to make any dish, and to some palettes one way is better than another, while others will feel the other way is better. RAW decoding is largely subjective.
