    7  

    We’ve recently seen a flurry of low-budget Mac-based bitmap editors, aiming to topple Photoshop from its lofty perch. Now, Illustrator’s in the firing line, with VectorDesigner seemingly positioned as a low-cost alternative.

    Apple Aperture 2 review

    Aperture 1.5 was great but very slow. Its RAW conversions, while decent weren't as good a Adobe's. It was expensive, too. Aperture 2 has changed all that. The database structure has been redesigned, and now Aperture is extremely fast, even on a MacBook.

    SilkyPix Developer Studio 3 review

    7  

    SilkyPix Developer Studio is shipped free with the Panasonic L10 digital SLR but is also available as a standalone program. At $149, it's quite expensive so what makes it so special? Certainly there's no shortage of features. It seems able to recover extra highlight detail (via exposure adjustments) and it can correct chromatic aberration and fix distortion.
