15 years ago: Aperture appeared, at first not enthusiastic – then all the more

In discussions about discontinued Apple programs, the end of Aperture is particularly regretted. The app not only enabled professional users to edit photos in a variety of ways, but also offered helpful tools to beginners despite the wealth of features. Aperture was not presented at an Apple event, but at the PhotoPlus Expo in New York. Delivery of the first version began exactly 15 years ago, the price at that time was 499 dollars. With Aperture 2.0 there was a reduction to only 199 dollars – and many additional editing tools and a completely new engine. After the Aperture 1 reviews were very mixed and often negative, this should change over time.
