Can anyone comment on using aperture with DNG files?
I have all my raw files in DNG format. The files contain lots of IPTC metadata in XMP format that is essential to my workflow.
Will Aperture recognize this data and will it update it?
I would like to give Aperture a try, but if it isn't well behaved with IPTC info in DNG files, it would be a waste of time.
Roy Aperture only supports DNGs from the cameras which are already supported. Which is kind of annoying, however if you have a camera such as a 20D Canon or KM5D then yes, Aperture will support your DNG files.
Why not download Aperture for a 30 Day trial? That way not only can you see if Aperture supports your DNG files, but you can see if you like Aperutre as a program.
