Saw this. Sad to see but I think things are heading that way anyway for every photo app. The masses are realizing how easy basic photo edits are so they are catering to the influx of people. Basically there will be two tiers: simple edits like instagram and lightroom that are simple and everyone will use and then there will be photoshop. I think Apple is ahead of the game here by going between iPhoto and Aperture. It will accomplish 80-90% of what the people want and the remaining 10% will have to get photoshop.

Crud - I am an aperture heavy user. I was hoping to hear of an update/upgrade and this is not good news.

...and so, some of the "advantages" of owning a Mac are disappearing. No surprise.

Aperture was the only reason i would have considered that fruit, but not now. :lol:

The only thing i don't like about this article by this guy..he has a vested interest in people not flocking to LR. His site depends on Aperture users, and calming the panic is in his best interest.

Damnit!

I want to move further from Adobe, not closer.

And this is bad news all the way around, as Adobe will have no viable competition anymore. Can we all spell S T A G N A T E ?

You only need to read Apple Discussions group for Aperture to see MANY are not happy at all.

But this is all part of apples iOS first strategy, as I've said elsewhere

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

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


I think we all now have to realise Apple are now a Phone manufacture with computing just a old not to be bothered about sideline.

I was already a PS and LR 1 user when aperture came out so had nothing but a passing interest in it. But I don't understand why they've done this. It's not like they can't afford to hire talented folks to continue to improve it. Or maybe, and I don't know, PS is just so much better with a much larger installed user base, that they weren't gaining any traction. I don't agree it will cause less innovation in PS.

I see a lot of dislike towards Adobe, but the real villains are companies like Apple, Corel, and others that fail to offer seriously compelling alternatives to Adobe's photo editing apps. Ironically just a few short years ago Steve Jobs called Adobe lazy, and now Apple is the one laying down.

No company, that I know of, has a seriously powerful well-connected (to third party apps) alternative to Photoshop. That is a shame. Boo on on the lazy Adobe competitors. At least there are alternatives to Lightroom. Anti-Adobe Aperture users might want to consider looking to Phase One for a Lightroom alternative in the excellent raw conversion and DAM application Capture One.
