Sometimes it is so confusing and difficult to learn or master something NEW, we are so set in our ways and I cant blame you.
But believe me to get of your normal path and try some thing New can be very rewarding, or even more profitable for your business.
Recent articles from the Beijing Olympics seem to prove just that, check them out at AUN or at O’Reilys interesting observations from the Pros at the worlds biggest sporting event.

Below are some very common terms used through out Aperture and in Digital Photography today.
Adobe RGB (1998) A commonly used color profile often used for printing. Many professional labs request that image files be delivered in this color space.
sRGB A common working space designed to represent the average PC monitor. Because of its small gamut, it is suitable for Web graphics but not for print production.
Adjustments HUD A heads-up display, or floating panel of contextual controls, that enables adjustments to be applied to images.
hue An attribute of color perception, also known as color phase. Red and blue are hues.
EXIF Short for Exchangeable Image File. The standard format for storing information about how an image was shot, such as shutter speed, aperture, white balance, exposure compensation, metering setting, ISO setting, date, and time.
HUD Heads-up display: a floating panel with various options. Different HUDs can adjust levels, increase brightness, modify color temperature, assign keywords, straighten horizons, or make any other adjustments.
ICC profile Created as a result of device characterization, an ICC profile contains the data about a device’s exact gamut.
IPTC Short for International Press Telecommunications Council. IPTC metadata is used by photographers and media organizations to embed keywords in the image files themselves. Large publishers typically use image managementsystems to quickly identify images based on their IPTC information.
metadata Data describing other data, including image files. Databases use metadata to track specific forms of data. Aperture automatically extracts all industry-standard EXIF and ITPC metadata when importing images and also allows metadata such as copyright, captions, and keywords to be added.
RAW The original bit-for-bit uncompressed digital image file captured by a camera. Aperture works with RAW images through every step of the digital workflow and supports the RAW formats from all leading digital camera manufacturers.
