Since buying my first Mac back in January, there have been quite a few changes to my work-flow. Changes for the good I might add.
Before anyone starts thinking I am a Mac fanboy , I am not, I am sure you can do just the same on a PC, but what I liked about the Mac and it’s software, is the easy at which I have been able to set up this work-flow.
Its’ all down to Apple’s aperture software and the way it intergrates with the Mobileme service. Once I have finished editing images after a shoot I can pick my selects for the client and with a couple of click’s I am uploading them to an online gallery. The gallery enables the client to download a single image or the whole gallery in a zip file.
Whats really cool too is you can continue to work on the image, making changes to the post processing and then you can synchronsie with the online album with a single click. This is great for collaborative work.
The acid test was when my clients started using the system, the feed back has been very positive, comments such as :- simple -intutive – cool !
So I hope apple broaden the features within Mobileme & Aperture, it would be nice if you could allow the clients to rate the images, or even intergrate a shopping cart & print service. Come on Apple you know you want to !
