Fair use rationale for Image:Apple Aperture.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Apple Aperture.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

New picture...[edit]

The image accompanying this article is very small and, as stated, is not subject to copyright laws as it is a screenshot. A full sized screenshot would be helpful in demonstrating the purpose and features of this program. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 142.25.42.225 (talk) 20:37, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Would this new section be useful? Should it be formatted differently? Does anybody have a good idea to obtain shipping dates?

Peachpit[edit]

Speer320, as I admitted, I have not yet had the time to check the material from peachpit. Did you do so? In which way is it more of advertising than an informative article about the economy from the NYT with plenty of flash ads? They probably contain the company name peachpit, just like the articles from the NYT contain the name New York Times. I just try to understand why information from one source is acceptable but not from another? Mlewan (talk) 14:06, 2 October 2008 (UTC)

NYT is a publication that reports news very different from what Peachpittv Did . The Edits made violated Wikipedia Guidelines see: Not. Speer320 (talk) 14:31, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
Your logic is far from convincing. "Very different"! What's that supposed to mean? And in which way do they violate any guidelines? In the future, please, don't just add a link to a "guideline" without explaining in which way a particular source in your opinion violates it.
However, I have now watched the actual clips, and I agree that in this case, they do not add any valuable information. Not because they "violate" anything, but because their information is trivial. They are not at the same level as many of the other peachpit podcasts. I will not add them back to the article. Mlewan (talk) 19:26, 2 October 2008 (UTC)
I am Sorry I gave such a short answer I was in a rush. I was saying that what they edited was a collection of external links Which violates the Guidelines. Also In My opinion NYT is a Much More reliable source/link since it is a Newspaper vs a Producer of learning materials Speer320 (talk) 02:01, 3 October 2008 (UTC)
Thanks for the clarification! Mlewan (talk) 04:57, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Aperture (photography software)Aperture (software) — The name if the proposed article title currently redirects to this article. It should be simplified for convenience. NerdyScienceDude :) (✉ click to talkmy editssign) 13:55, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

"Was developed"?[edit]

The first line of the article has the words "Aperture is a photo editing and management software program that was developed by Apple", which sounds like the program is discontinued. Any specific reasons? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Iqbal.safdar (talkcontribs) 02:57, 28 November 2010 (UTC)

I agree. Another misconception is that Apple was the original developer and now another entity is the developer. I suggest removing "that was" so that it reads "...and management software program developed by Apple..."Gregtheross (talk) 18:06, 10 August 2011 (UTC)

In the intervening years this issue has resolved itself. Since mid 2014, Apple has ceased development on Aperture, so now "was developed" is now correct. 82.30.103.179 (talk) 14:22, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

Aperture (software)Aperture (application) — This article should be moved to Aperture (application) as it is more specifically an application, software seems too broader term whereas application more accurately reflects the articles subject. Additionally, programs developed for Apple's operating systems (i.e. Mac OS X and iOS) refer to computer programs as applications. - 81.154.164.210 (talk) 21:16, 23 December 2010 (UTC)

  • Oppose; "software" is only too broad if there is other software with the same name. "Application" is just short for "software application", so there's no material advantage there. Powers T 23:54, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
  • Oppose; per Powers. --Born2cycle (talk) 04:09, 24 December 2010 (UTC)
