The last update to Apple’s professional photo organizer and editor added iCloud compatibility, but didn’t quite dial in fixes for a few issues. Now, Aperture 3.2.2 looks like the version that works out those kinks. In addition to resolving an issue with iCloud and Photo Stream, Aperture displays magnification levels correctly using the loupe, uses the correct color profile for externally edited images under Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, fixes a crash under Lion that could occur when using brushes, makes the app behave correctly in full-screen mode, and more.

Removing Photos from iPhoto
Despite iPhoto's long history, many people continue to be confused about exactly what happens when you delete a photo. There are three possibilities.
If you delete a photo from an album, book, card, calendar, or saved slideshow, the photo is merely removed from that item and remains generally available in your iPhoto library.
If, however, you delete a photo while in Events or Photos view, that act moves the photo to iPhoto's Trash. It's still available, but...
If you then empty iPhoto's Trash, all photos in it will be deleted from the iPhoto library and from your hard disk.
