Still using Aperture? It might be time to give it up. Apple announced Aperture will not get support from future MacOS past Mojave and have issued a support document encouraging Mac-based shooters to migrate their photo libraries.
Oct 30, 9: This is like open heart surgery on many patients each edited photo at once. Almost all things specific or proprietary in image editing in Aperture or other program you move from to LR or COP others in future will be lost. Any manipulations will simply move over as a second copy of the image. Personally, I wish they would just let the user name these things!
Also, to be able to add on new forms of organizing. Like maybe file folders to hold misc work you are not filing away yet. Be realistic about migration. There will be losses and name changes.
For my needs, I see no reason to update yet or pay rent to Adobe. Apertures, not ever again. Technology marches on. As a designer and art director for over 25 years, I have seen many great design programs come and go.
Letraset made a great image editing program, but it is long gone. It did and could have competed with PS at the time but, they decided to kill it. Pagemaker got a bad rap. It actually could do a lot but you had to understand how to do it. Nobody bothered to learn. It is basically gone. Freehand was terrific. Gone along with easy multipage documents of any multiple size for a drawing program.
Photographers, now, finally fully working digital from camera to screen, are going to have to get used to change. Unfair or frequently as it may happen. Designers went though about a decade of bitiching about computers. To photographers great credit, they shortened this to only a few years of analog v. Now, its over and, we can all move on… More Less.
