Well, that sucks. I really like aperture. I hope the new Photo app will have the same functionality.

I just saw this on MacRumors and my heart sank. I am an adventure photographer that uses Aperture extensively at least 4-5 days a week. I've been with the program since it came out and this is very upsetting news to me. I highly doubt the "Photos App for the Cloud" will be a professional application. vmad

Off to work where I will be processing and delivering photos today on a very tight timeline. Well, at least for now. Grrr....

I'll keep using it as long as I can; it suits my limited needs as a hobbyist and I really like the interface. I don't want to switch to a subscription based program like Lightroom so I guess I'd better get busy figuring out what to do down the road.

You don't have to subscribe to Lr. You can buy the standalone version for $149.

Or take a look at Capture One. in many ways it's better than LR.


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

Not a cat in hells chance, for reference just look at the tripe Apple released as the updated Pages and Numbers.

As far as Apple seem to be concerned all apps are developed for iOS first, then ported to OS X later. :mad:

Just wait till iWatch out sells iPhones/iPads , then every Apple app will have to run on a one inch screen.


As for Apple making it easier to transfer from Aperture to Lightroom, well I'll sell all my camera stuff before going to Adobe .

I will use it as long as I can. The organization schemes in the other apps are ridiculously horrible. Aperture made sense of organization.

I too will use it as long as I can, but I now feel forced to look into LR5 or Capture one. Maybe I'll like one of them better and it'll be a blessing in disguise. Just trying to be positive. sigh

I literally was contemplating starting a thread a few days ago asking for opinions on switching to Lightroom, not because I dislike Aperture (I actually love it, and prefer it to Lightroom, and didn't think anything needed to be switched!), but because I was fearful that Apple somehow would stop supporting their product and I would lose my entire library of edits/changes. Sunuvab#$%

I have multiple plugins for Aperture as well. Google's NIK package, I wonder if I'll have to repurchase for lightroom now. Oiy

I myself don't know of any links (I'm not an Apple/Mac user) but I'm sure there are plenty of folks here that can help! Maybe if you start a thread with that as the topic?

According to the MacRumors article - http://www.macrumors.c​om …rture-development-stops/: (external link)

According to TechCrunch, Apple will continue to provide compatibility updates to allow Aperture to run on OS X Yosemite, but development will stop. Apple is also working with Adobe to create a transitionary workflow to help users shift to Lightroom.

So, you may get a "transitionary" workflow from the official sources.

In the meantime, you can try using Catapult:

http://brushedpixel.co​m (external link)

This will permit you to edit the raw file from your Aperture library in an external raw converter. If you try to use drag-and-drop or export a file from Aperture, it will convert the raw into a TIFF or JPEG with Aperture's settings applied. Catapult provides the external raw converter with the raw file, and stacks the processed file with the original raw back in Aperture.

Maybe this will help a little? It will not wholesale covert Aperture libraries and edits to the LR equivalent - presumably that is what Apple and Adobe are trying to cook up. Here is Adobe's announcement re: Aperture and transition:

http://blogs.adobe.com …/apple-aperture-news.html (external link)

Here are more details on migrating - a little dated:

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.

Well, I jumped in. I subscribed to Photoshop CC, and now have Lightroom and Photoshop installed. I'm actually excited about Photoshop, as I've always wanted to learn and look forward to the creative possibilities. Lightroom interface and workflow is just so ugly though compared with Aperture but I'll learn to deal with it.

On a positive note, I sent an email to Google, and within 15 minutes I had a reply with a link to the latest download of the Nik package. No extra cost. I'm pretty sure any user of NIK for Aperture will be able to update and within the update it will install for both Aperture and Lightroom at the same time. So that was my main concern addressed already : )
