Apple has released Aperture 3.0.3, a significant maintenance update to its professional photo management and editing application. The fixes delivered by the update address issues pertaining to applying image adjustments, using RAW Fine Tuning presets, working with detected faces, changing target printers while printing, making smart album duplicates, building and repairing Aperture libraries, reconnecting missing referenced files, working with GPS files in Places, and performing keyword searches. A lengthy list of changes is available on Apple's Web site. ($199 new, free update, 69.4 MB)
Single Time Machine Backups
Tired of Time Machine running all the time? You can turn it off in the Time Machine preference pane, but still initiate a single backup by choosing Back Up Now from Time Machine's menu bar icon. Of course, your backup is much less likely to be up to date, but Time Machine won't be taking any resources while you're trying to work.
