As Charlie mentioned in his iPhone post, there’s a nice two-way connection between iPhone and Aperture. I’m not as interested in uploading my iPhone images to Aperture, but using the iPhone’s beautiful display for my Aperture photos is very appealing.
The process is easy. I decided to create an “iPhone Album” in Aperture to serve as a drop box. I added a few shots from the Giants/Diamondbacks game that I shot on Saturday (Giants won 4-1, yaay!). Then, when I connected the iPhone to my Mac, I choose the Aperture Album under the Photos tab. When I synced, iTunes optimized the images for display on the iPhone and added them to the device.
The iPhone display is perfect for showing off your photos. I really like the saturation and brightness, plus, all I have to do to change image orientation, is rotate the phone. So you can mix verticals and horizontals at will.
The iPhone might not be great at image capture, but it does a fine job of display.
