Apple Aperture 3.0.3 Import

Aperture performance is slightly slower than Lightroom 3. Results are about 1/3 slower if the face detection setting is enabled.

Note that 12 cores is only 8% faster than 6 cores— Aperture does not scale.

Aperture 3 is not using the available CPU cores as well as it ought to.
