Couture Book has released a new book plug-in that allows users of Aperture 3, the new version of Apple’s photo editing and management software, to design and order museum-quality photo books directly within Aperture.

The Couture Book plug-in for Aperture 3 makes it easier than ever to create unique hand-sewn press-printed photo books, says Phyllis Lane, co-founder of Couture Book. The plug-in ( allows photographers to build their photo books using themed templates professionally designed by Couture Book.

Users simply download and run the installer, then re-launch Aperture 3. The Couture Book themes appear in the theme chooser menu with previews of each book style.
