I've played with Aperture a bit, but I'm pretty sure that UNDO was the regular, universal Command-Z.

Oops typo should have been "command z"

Was referring to the open source Darkroom app. No idea why they wandered from that universal key command for undo, or where they wandered to.

Like I said so far this one falls into the may be useful but not for me category.

Unhappy Warning For Aperture Users, re: El Capitan

Warning for Aperture users:
If you upgrade your Apple OS to OS X El Capitan (10.11), you will permanently lose the ability to open Aperture.
Gone.
It happened to me today.

Now I'm desperately trying to find an Aperture replacement that isn't Adobe ransomware.

I watched the impressive demo of Affinity, so I downloaded the trial tonight.

For anyone who is interested in Affinity, here is an Affinity comment thread from DP Review...

SoyMac, all hope may not be lost. Aperture is reported to work and not work depending on the case at hand. I suggest you poke around in Apple's Discussion Forum and do a few web searches, you may find that Aperture isn't as dead as you think!

You can still get Adobe Lightroom as a stand alone program.

Image rotation is in the "crop and rotate" module on the right side panel. To get exactly a 90 deg rotation, right-click on "angle" to call up a curve panel. Type "90" on the curve panel and hit return. In fact this is how users enter an exact value for most adjustment in darktable. I can't remember if I learn this through the darktable manual, or the pretty good ebook but written based on an older version of darktable, or after watching a video tutorial.

I roll the mouse wheel to enlarge the display.

It is completely non-destructive, original image was never touched.
This is the good thing with darktable, just like Lightroom.

This is a puzzle for me too. I read it here that darktable started out as a s/w for the Linux community, and probably because there wasn't (and still isn't) a version of Lightroom for Linux OS. Then someone wanted a Mac version of darktable, so a group ported the s/w over. Perhaps the non-Mac keyboard shortcuts came from the initial Linux development.

As to "undo", I still don't know how to do that with a keyboard shortcut.

As much as darktable is quite powerful, Lightroom is still my primary s/w for image processing. I only open darktable every now and then to learn how to use it, just in case one day Adobe finally abandons the standalone version of Lightroom.

For those considering Lightroom, Adobe just gave you a gift:

Adobe Makes iOS Lightroom Apps Completely Free
Adobe has made the iPhone and iPad Lightroom photo workflow apps completely free to use, no longer requiring a signup for a Creative Cloud subscription, or ownership of the desktop application.
“We’re seeing alot of people come in first on Lightroom mobile, so now we’re allowing people to use it locally on their local assets, their local photos and videos on their phone and tablet for as long as they like,” Adobe’s director of product management for digital imaging, Tom Hogarty, explained to The Next Web.
The iOS apps have always been a free download, but previously could only be used for a thirty-day trial without a license or subscription.

Adobe has updated the apps with several new features, including built-in camera app, a dehazing tool, and more. The apps also hook to Photoshop Fix and Premier Clip. Clip still requires an Adobe ID.

Thanks for the heads up CM, will give it a test to see if it improves my current programs that I use now that it is free.
