iPHOTO and APERTURE 2 do we need them both? You bought a new Mac… iLIFE installed do we really need iPhoto as professional Photographers? I do…

The Colors of Mumbai
Click on The Colors of Mumbai for a small sample what you can do in just a few minutes, I really mean minutes not hours. Created entirely on a Mac Book Pro with Aperture 2...GarageBand...iPhoto & iMovie. I have kept the file fairly small for those of you with a slow connection of course you can make this much bigger and have a nice presentation in no time...even when you on the road. P.S. the Music has been composed using the Magic GarageBand setup which took only a few minutes.
All of us have these happy family snaps; images of friends and parties, now is the time (for me) to use iPhoto, keep my personal images separate from my pro work.
But that’s not all I use iPhoto for some of my email, websites and Blogs very handy indeed and keeping Aperture 2 for my pro workload, a nice tidy setup.
Occasional my friends or family members ask me to store or sort out their personal images, yes I could do this in Aperture 2 very easy but my preference is to use iPhoto for this personal stuff. This has been working very well for me since most of the time the images from friends, family, web and blogs are in JPG anyway.
I have found a very nice and efficient way to use both applications and because of the superb integration on the Mac I have access to iPhoto in Aperture 2.1 anyway, plus keeping the business separate from the private images.
iLife is not only iPhoto, you have iTunes, Garageband, iMovie, iDVD & iWeb it is a whole package, now it is up to you how to apply each and every one of them, been so integrated you end up using them all, like I do for some cool presentations.
What about iWorks and Aperture 2…stay tuned and find out soon.

APERTURE 2 & the .Mac WEB GALLERY…keeping tight schedules and deadlines is easy now…delivered Tibet on time…a real live scenario.
APERTURE 2 & the .Mac WEB GALLERY
delivered Tibet on time…
Deadlines, deadlines and more deadlines…the last minute changes by editors or the production staff from magazines… an all to familiar story.
Take this very recent case; I submitted images from Tibet for a story in the Asian Geographic Magazine, the first images where in low resolution…for selection purpose.
Weeks went by and yesterday the shout for the high-resolution images came in…
”we need them today”… OK. No problems…I got Aperture 2 and since all my high and low resolution images are stored in my Aperture Library I quickly selected the “CHOSEN ONES” had them up for downloading on a New .Web Gallery with username and password…that was last night. (see the email correspondence below)
Today I received the email below…do I have to say anything else? I guess not…once the story is out this month I let you have a preview until then…if you need your images out there fast from one publisher to another, use the Web Gallery in Aperture 2, so easy now and happy faces at the production department.
See below the original email correspondence from the last 24 hours…
