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.

Compare More Easily in Apple Mail
In Apple Mail, if you need to work back and forth between two different views of Mail's mailbox contents, you can do so quite easily. For example, you might want to look at a mailbox holding all filtered-in sales orders from the past week while also looking at a smart mailbox showing unanswered customer questions.
To avoid constantly clicking between mailbox views and losing your context each time, choose File > New Viewer window to get a second window and then arrange each window as desired.
