Continuing with their arsenal of updates to support OS X Mountain Lion, Apple has released updates for several of their creative apps, including Aperture, iPhoto, and iMovie. The updates are mainly intended to patch minor issues and more fully integrate with Mountain Lion’s new features.
While iMovie’s release notes don’t specifically mention Mountain Lion on the Mac App Store, it does call for fixes with third-party Quicktime components, improved stability when viewing MPEG-2 clips in the Camera Import window, and brings sound back to MPEG-2 clips important from a camera (where it may have been absent before).
The latest version of Aperture includes updates for added compatibility with Mountain Lion, addresses stability issues that can occur when the app is in Full Screen mode, tweaks auto white balance when using Skin Tone mode, and now lets users sort projects and albums in the Library Inspector by date, name, and kind.
Today’s iPhoto update is about bringing sharing options to Messages and Twitter, whilst fixing some stability issues and improving compatibility with Mountain Lion. Last month, iPhoto and Aperture were updated with the release of the MacBook Pro with Retina display. Among other things, this update unified the two apps’ libraries, enabling them to access each others’ stored photos natively.
Aperture, iPhoto, and iMovie are available from the Mac App Store. The updates are also available through Software Update for users who installed the apps with a DVD.
