Treatment of a pair of dusk shots taken from the East Pier in Dun Loaghaire, just south of Dublin, Ireland.
These images show some of the weaknesses of iPhoto – both were manipulated using iPhoto, and because you can’t store the manipulated parameters short of writing them down, I had to guess at the settings from one photo to the next. You can see this in the slightly different hues in the images. If Apple were to revise iPhoto 6 to do this (currently 5.0.4 here), it would be a huge step forward. In light of the fact however that they’re introducing Aperture, I think the liklihood of a souped-up iPhoto 6 is questionable. However, since the technical requirements for Aperture seem pretty steep – you need a gig of RAM for instance – it won’t be accessible to a lot of ordinary users. I haven’t read anything on the rumour sites yet about a revised iPhoto. Maybe something will happen when 10.5 emerges in concert with the forthcoming Intel-based Macs.
