Import images in a flash. Manage them like a pro.
Pop a memory card filled with new images into your card reader and Aperture gets right to work, instantly displaying thumbnails and offering intelligent ways to add copyright, captions, keywords, and other metadata as you import them. You can also import images from hard drives, optical media, even iPhoto.
Connect a camera to your Mac via USB or FireWire and save the photos directly in an Aperture project.
Store your images wherever and however you like — directly in Aperture, on external drives, even on huge network storage devices. Aperture keeps track of every photo. Organize photos logically in projects, folders, albums, and Smart Albums. Aperture also provides powerful tools for adding metadata to images, making them easy to find long after you import them.
