THE DEATH OF APPLE’S APERTURE AND IPHOTO.
On Friday June 27, 2014 Apple announces that they will no longer continue/support the programs Aperture and iPhoto. Both applications are due to be replaced by Apple’s forthcoming photos application, which will be a part of OS X Yosemite, but isn’t set to launch until early 2015.
Some reports on the Internet claim that Apple will continue development of Final Cut Pro X.
From what I have seen on various postings and comments on the Internet, many people and die-hard Apple users are quite upset over this news. Granted we all seen this coming for a while since Apple had not released any new updates for the program Aperture. Leaving many people at the time wondering why no new updates.
Adobe makers of Adobe Lightroom photo editing program has been all over this news promoting its “Creative Cloud” format and Lightroom along with Adobe Photoshop. As the format and programs to now use for ones photo editing, while as well saying “We’re working on a way for iPhoto and Aperture customers to more easily migrate to Lightroom.”
Adobe has also posted the following comment. “Put simply we’re doubling down on our investments in Lightroom and the new Creative Cloud Photography plan and you can expect to see a rich roadmap of rapid innovation for desktop, web and device workflows in the coming weeks, months and years. We also continue to invest actively on the iOS and OSX platforms, and are committed to helping interested iPhoto and Aperture customers migrate to our rich solution across desktop, device and web workflows.”
If you are a die-hard Apple user or just your average person that uses Aperture or iPhoto and have not used Adobe Lightroom or Photoshop for whatever reason that you may have.
I can tell you the following as an Adobe Lightroom user. “Adobe Lightroom is the software to use for your photo edits and processing. It’s worth migrating to and using.”
