More than you ever wanted to know about Aperture and Photos! from Joseph at Aperture expert:
On the surface, it doesn’t seem like good news, but there’s a lot more to this than a few lines of text. First, the official words.
“With the introduction of the new Photos app and iCloud Photo Library, enabling you to safely store all of your photos in iCloud and access them from anywhere, there will be no new development of Aperture. When Photos for OS X ships next year, users will be able to migrate their existing Aperture libraries to Photos for OS X.” — Apple, Inc.
In short, Aperture as we know it is dead. So let’s take a step back and figure out what this really means, because obviously photography is far from unimportant to Apple. There are more questions than answers now than ever before, and I’ll try to come up with all the right questions and all my best answers. Call this interpretation, speculation, or clairvoyance — but here’s how I’m reading into this.
