    Is Aperture coming out with an edging tool to isolate parts of a picture?

    how can anyone know that for sure?

    but my guess is YES. lightroom has the ability to do localized edits so I would imagine the next version of Aperture will too.

    It's anyone's guess when the next version will be released but I suspect next june.

    I find it interesting that my old $99 Microsoft photo editing software had this, but not this more expensive photo editing program. Also disturbing that you have to pay extra for any plug in.

    As has been said may times, Aperture (and Lightroom) are not primarily photo editing programs. They are file management programs with which you can make basic adjustments. They are evolving into more full-fledged photo editing programs, but they are obviously not there yet.

    What $99 microsoft photo editing software were you using?

    ^^^

    Exactly...

    For the stuff the OP is looking for, you need Photoshop...

    You must not be using Lightroom properly. Lightroom is wayyyy more than just organzing and doing basic edits. You're crazy if you think so.

    Digital Suite 9

    When using my PC I was working with Microsoft Digital Suite 9. Microsoft stop producing it last year. Hate to have to invest in Photo Shop at this point.

    Compared to PS, LR is basic. LR and Aperture are, first and foremost, management applications.

    I'm not using Lightroom at all. I'm using Aperture.

    A lot depends on your definition of "basic" edits.

    As I said, these programs are evolving and incorporating more editing features. Presently, they remain less powerful than Photoshop.

    Apparently, I'm also crazy.
