I don't have an answer to your exact question, but I would advise that you make sure you are 100% positive that you want to do it before you start.

I use iPhoto and Aperture together. Aperture is more powerful, but iPhoto is more user-friendly for the rest of the family. A few months ago I wasn't paying attention to the Apple Software Update and I let it install and migrate me to Photos. It didn't take long to realize how much I hate Photos. It is a dumbed-down version of iPhoto, meant to be used by people taking snapshots with their iPhones, not photographers. MANY of the cool organizational features of iPhoto are simply gone. SO, I migrated myself BACK to iPhoto. It still runs just fine along with Aperture.

The problem is Aperture is no longer being supported by Apple. We'll probably be able to run it for a few years, but eventually we won't be able to. I'm hoping they see the error of their ways before I have to find another solution. I know Lightroom and some other tools are WAY better. But I'm an amateur and don't want to spend that kind of money.

I am in the same boat, think I will let Aperture be my DAM until I upgrade the computer which will be this year, I hope. I did purchase Affinity photo from the app store and have found it to be quite powerful. It's a low cost ($49) alternative to photoshop. At this point, photo's does not really allow external editors but that is supposed to be remedied by Apple in a future update. I will probably migrate to Photo's and have Affinity do the heavy lifting so to speak. At the very least you may want to check out the Affinity forums and their tutorials on vimeo. By the way I am in know way connected with Affinity. There is a lack of documentation because of the newness of the software but there seems to be plenty of help. I am running Affinity on a 2008 iMac with 4 gigs of ram , not super fast but not a lot worse then aperture runs. Hope this helps. Chris
