I'm not surprised. Apple is not specifically into photography. I'm a Mac user, always have been, but when I got into photography I chose Lightroom over Aperture, thinking that Lightroom would probably be around for a long time as this is what Adobe does, but Aperture probably wouldn't because this is not what Apple does. I'm not glad to have been proven right, but I am glad I chose Lightroom.

Good insight Levina, but it really seemed/seems that Apple was trying to pursue the photography market (but by camera phone, not by dSLR).

Aperture was being developed at the same time as Lightroom was being developed, and they were both "targeting" photographers with similar "offerings". But it looks like Lightroom has become so popular that Apple has decided to move on and focus on the iPhone market!

Luckily, as Mac users we have a wealth of raw converters from which to choose, as well as DAM applications to boot. Here is a partial list, others can feel free to chime in and add their suggestions. Also, while I know that Aperture users were hoping for a v4 or Aperture X pro tool, Aperture still works!

I found this Aperture to Lightroom (external link)

Does LR handle Video files as well? Like most of you, I shoot occasional videos and love the integration to iMovie. Does this mean when I use LR, I have to drag and drop the Video file from LR to iMove for me to use it?!!!

Yes, LR does "handle" video, but that's all I know about it!:)

I suppose you could set up iMovie to be an "external editor" in LR, but I'll let those with experience address the specifics!

Well shît!

Damnit. I was afraid this was happening and now it has. I loath Adobe, so I guess I will be spending some time in finding a replacement workflow.

I am one of Apple's biggest supporters, but they can suck it here. 8-(

Annoying.

Like others, i have a strong dislike towards Adobe. But luckily i dont have to migrate any libraries. I keep all my raw files in separate folders and import when i need them.

Ill use Aperture as long as i can, but start looking for a good replacement.


Can anyone tell me if its possible in Lightroom to import photo's in a year/month/date folder ánd in a library that i can name at will? Thats what i really liked about Aperture.

Of course you can do that! It's a subject for another thread, but check the links that have been made about migrating from Aperture to Lightroom!

Oh bugger, looks like I may need to research LR and Capture One. Aperture is so nice to use.

Of course it will still work as it always has after today. No reason why I can not just stay using it, it's working just fine for me now and as long as I don't upgrade my OS to far it will continue to work in the future. I don't use cloud syncing stuff so thats not an issue for me.

Then Lightroom is for you (you can buy it).

Also, NONE of the CC apps are 'rental' to access files. They're all installed locally, and all of my files are local.

I think rental means you pay or don't play. Choose to switch to another editor and stop paying Adobe, things stop. You have your images but no way to make further adjustments. So a subscription is like renting the software.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.
