Apple Dumps Aperture, iPhoto in Favor of Photos App

Apple Dumps Aperture, iPhoto in Favor of Photos App | pixels and pictures | Scoop.it

Apple is streamlining its photography-software options. The company said on June 27th that it will stop development of its professional photo-editing OS X title Aperture in favor of the newly announced Photos software, which will be available for both OS X and iOS 8. You won't get updates or bug fixes beyond the current version of Aperture.

According to The Loop, the Photos app will also take over iPhoto, Apple's existing consumer-level photo editor, to give users a more seamless experience across devices. Photos is expected to launch with iOS 8 and on OS X early next year. It will store all the pictures you've taken into iCloud so you can retrieve them wherever you are.

Philippe J DEWOST's insight:

Looks like Aperture users might have to get progressively ready to Yet Another Migration of their pix and (more important IMHO), the corresponding metadata, whether they stick to AppleDom or migrate to AdobeDom...

(and now we understand why iPhoto and Aperture converged in terms of library structure a while ago)
