Apple’s pro photography app Aperture 3 has at last added an export option for custom adjustment presets. Here, then, is a presets file containing four of my custom adjustments, yours to apply and remix as you like.
To install the presets, switch to the Adjustments tab in the main Aperture window then select Edit Presets… from the Presets drop-down menu. Now from the Actions drop-down menu in the bottom left corner of the Adjustment Presets window, select Import…, locate the downloaded file and press Import.
The Font Game from Johno Boardley, Justin Stahl and Kari Pätilä is in the App Store approval queue, due out any day. It’s a single-player, quick-fire font identification game in which you race the clock to name 30 typefaces in a multi-choice format. The beautifully designed interface makes liberal use of H&FJ’s Whitney family, which is a welcome change from the usual Helvetica. I’ve played with an early beta and even then the subtle animation effects and slightly non-standard UI made for a very handsome product. I’m sure it’ll be a big hit.
