Tip: Aperture 2…Did you know some of these abbreviations, like ICC profile, IPTC, plus many others…? Difficult to know if you just started to use Aperture or NEW to those Photography terms on the Computer plus more info from the AUN at the Beijing Olympics.

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.
Check out the very latest info/images behind the scene at the Beijing Olympics and Aperture 2.1.1 go to:

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.
HANOI VIETNAM... View from the Car Window… a nice example of Vietnamese daily life…a reader contribution. A cool shot, edited in Aperture 2.1.1 interesting TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY and the shooting from the car window continuous…
Thank you Massimo for letting me use your image on my blog, a nice one to share with all our other readers.
See below email from Massimo:
I always very interested to follow your blogs updates.
Just my 1 cent:
- Regarding the way to protect your pictures on the web I agree that flash make it more difficult. Anyway as you know very well it is very easy to copy a pictures using tools like "Grab" for the Mac, even if still in low resolution.
- I do really like your latest gallery "The View from my Car Window". Street photography (with or without car!) is what I really like and do a lot here in Vietnam. I would like to share the following picture that I got from the car last weekend.

you might also noticed that I have added a Copyright watermark
on Massimo’s image hence my other blog
“How to protect my images on the web”.
The picture is taken in Ha Tay province (just outside Hanoi city) from the car window.
I used a Canon 1DMarkIII camera + 28-300L lens. RAW file processed with Aperture 2.1.1, using also the Dodge and Burn plug-in to lighten and sharpen the bride face.
Thank you very much and Best Regards!!
