Aperture’s Third Party Plugins
Aperture itself is an amazingly powerful workflow tool. But improving it’s capabilities is something you can do by adding third party plugins. What plugins do can vary. Some reduce noise, others allow you to combine images for HDR composites, there are lens correction tools and artistic filters, interpolation software as well as mapping and sharpening plugins. The list is growing fast and there is a great location for you to go to check out all the possibilities.
One of my absolute favorites is the plugin made by Nik Software called Viveza 2. This plugin has the outstanding U-Point Technology you need to try to believe. I highlighted the use of Nik’s Viveza in this blog post titled: Capturing an Image and Post Processing. Take a look for yourself to see if there are any that could fit your needs or desires. It’s great to see the list on the plugins page constantly growing. Drop me a note if you find something you really like to use. I’m always interested in hearing how you guys and gals are putting these new tools work.
