Apple releases Aperture 3 with some iPhoto features on board

Apple's pro photo software Aperture has never really caught on like some of its more popular software. Maybe it was the price, at $200, or maybe it just didn't deliver an experience that couldn't be better replicated elsewhere. But Apple's not ready to give up on it yet.

The new version of Aperture has just hit the Apple store, and it brings along with it the Faces and Places features that iPhoto users have been enjoying for some time now. Faces auto-detects who is in each photo, letting you automatically sort pictures by who's in them. Places uses geotagging to place your photos on a map based on where you took them.

Will these features be enough to get you to drop $200 on photo importing and organization software?
