    Aperture shows you of you want. Although if you focus and recompose as I usually do it's kind if useless.

    I know Aperture does.

    What are you using to manage your photo library ?

    Aperture is Mac?, I am looking for an Windows app, sorry for not saying.

    I would just like to check the focus points to see if the focus was sharp in that area, i was not certain if it could be done with an contrast based focus, i have seen them with an phase-detection camera before.

    I am assuming that the focus point on some cameras is written into the exif data... obviously Apertrure reads that info... I would be surprised/disappointed if Lightroom didnt do the same thing
