Hi all

I don't know if its me , but I find aperture colors are always very yellow . if you reduce the color bar for yellow , I would say its much better .

What do you think about this ? specially with nature shots .

cheers

James

I personally like the default rendering that Aperture has.  It's much more faithful in my experience than the Lightroom default rendering, which for my Canon was awful in the red/orange/yellow spectrum.  The new profiles with LR 2.0 may have addressed this, but I moved away to Aperture in the interim as the LR 1.4.x renderings were so bad for me in a number of shots.

Anyway, is your monitor calibrated?  You could always dial in some tint change toward the pink if that's it; but if your monitor is calibrated and your white balance is set properly (or you're balancing in Aperture) the renderings should be pretty faithful.

Raw files are not good for judging the colour accuacy. Try opening a tagged tiff in aperture and ps. For true apple to apple comparison, set the conversion engine to apple ccm.
