Apple Store Goes Down – Updates Coming – Aperture 3

Apple [AAPL] have taken their store down (globally) which indicates they are updating with new products, changes to products or perhaps something not worth worrying about. What we do know about is Aperture 3 which was just published as a press release this morning. Other updates “might” include pricing for the UK iPad.

Aperture 3 is Apple’s photo editing software that has just received an update to version 3. The new version includes over 200 new features that includes Faces, Places and Brushes.

The software makes it easier to organise photo libraries. Other features include the ability to quickly edit pictures and give 1 click photo effects.

“Millions of people love using iPhoto to organize, edit and share their digital photos,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “Aperture 3 is designed for both professionals who edit and manage massive libraries of photos and iPhoto users who want to take their photos further with easy-to-use tools such as Brushes and Adjustment Presets.”

When launched (which is today as soon as Apple re-open their store) Aperture 3 will cost $99 for the upgrade and $199 for the full version in the US. A trial can also be found online that lets you use the software for 30 days before having to register. The software is a 64-bit application that can run on Mac OS X Snow Leopard and requires a Core 2 Duo processor.
