Hey everyone. It’s been a little crazy around here since Apple announced that they’re stopping future development for Aperture. As you can imagine, there’s a lot of Aperture users that are now looking to make the move to Lightroom. And since Lightroom is a huge part of my job, I had to jump on a few projects over the weekend and past few days. Anyway, just wanted to keep you posted and let you know about a couple of things in case you’re interested.
1. Scott and I did a live webcast yesterday on making the move from Aperture to Lightroom. We went over how to get your photos over from Aperture to Lightroom, as well as some of the editing similarities between the two. Here’s a link if you want to watch the re-broadcast (it’s totally free to watch right now).
2. If you are/were an Aperture user, I wrote a blog post over on my Lightroom blog called “10 Things Aperture Users Need to Know About Lightroom”. It goes over 10 key areas in Aperture and how they translate over to Lightroom.
Whew! It’s been a crazy couple of days, but as usual the dust always settles on this stuff. Thankfully Aperture will continue to work for any foreseeable future so you can just stay put if you’d like. And, just as thankfully, Lightroom has a great community of learning out there so if you did decide to make the switch, you’ll have plenty of resources to learn from.
Have a good one!
