Ok, I am not trying to do any self marketing etc. I noticed that when importing Nikon d7000 NEF's into Aperture they all get applied a weird base profile which makes them look somewhat .. pale. Nothing like when importing through Capture NX or View NX. So, I took some time (several hours) in comparing the colors etc. and adjusting the settings in Aperture to match the Nikon product import fairly closely. I wrote about the testing and how to import and use on my site (in the signature), but if you just want the file, its a zip located here. I am using this preset during import and on older imported RAWs and it makes the photos look much better from the get go already. Yes you are right that you can do that anyway in the adjustments but that takes time and the results are not consistent. I checked it against 20 random samples in my library and when the RAW files get applied this preset they match the CaptureNX output much closer... at least for me. Anyway, just thought I'd share. I'd appreciate no direct links to the file, it did take some time to make it. Again, this will make your pictures more poppy from the start but you can adjust afterwards and it might not be for every image either, if you want to achieve a certain pale effect. //f PS: as i wrote in the article about this preset, the system was color calibrated and I used the same screen but split windows to adjust the settings.
