In the continuing set of iCloud-related releases, Apple has pushed out Aperture 3.2 to provide compatibility with iCloud’s Photo Stream feature. A number of other minor changes round out the release, notably support for left and right swipe gestures for navigating between photos, the pinch-to-zoom gesture activating Zoom mode in the Viewer, relaunching into Full Screen mode if the app was in Full Screen mode when last quit, support for Microsoft Outlook for sending photos via email, and an option in the Import window to delete photos from an iOS device after import. Bugs have been fixed too, including a crashing bug when using brushes to apply adjustments, problems with Loupe displaying magnification levels between 50 and 100 percent, incorrect color profiles on externally edited images, and incorrect cursor icons when using the Lift & Stamp tool in Split View and Viewer Only modes.

Set Per-Folder Views in the Finder
Tired of navigating to a particular folder and having to switch to List View every time? With Finder in Leopard, you can set viewing preference for each individual folder. Just navigate to it, and set the view the way you want (Column, List, Icon, or Cover Flow). Then choose View > Show View Options (Command-J) and in the window that appears, select the Always Open In... checkbox.
