Apple updates Aperture 3 with iCloud, iOS 5, Lion fixesApple has released a 3.2.2 update to Aperture, its professional photo software, via the Mac App Store.
Apple notes that the free new update to the $79.99 Aperture 3 resolves compatibility issues with iCloud and iOS 5, specifically noting that the new version fixes a flaw that limited Photo Stream from working beyond the first 1,000 images for some users.
Swipe gestures can now be used to navigate between photos , and pinch to zoom now automatically activates Zoom mode in the Viewer, Apple notes.
There's also bug fixes that relate to using Aperture with Mac OS X Lion, including fixing incorrect color profiles attached to externally edited images, and crashes related to using brushes.
Apple has separately added Logic Pro 9 and MainStage 2 to the Mac App Store today, making most the Mac maker's first party software now available exclusively through its software market for desktop users.
Aperture was the first Pro App Apple added to the Mac App Store, but the package hasn't seen a major update since the 64-bit version 3.0 was released in February 2010.
