ďWith 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,Ē reads a statement Apple released to Macworld.
This seemed like a Friday garage dump announcement. The move isnít very surprising. Adobe Lightroom is a fine product and when I was looking for a tool to manage photo libraries beyond the capabilities of iPhoto, Lightroom was my choice. While a pain for users, ultimately itís better to end a product than to allow it to gimp along with minimal support. That is if Apple doesnít feel a product warrants major development resources, which is the case with Aperture.
Interestingly, Apple Friday also pushed out updates to Final Cut Pro, Motion, and Compressor, itís line of professional video tools. Coincidence or do you think Apple might be trying to assure other professional customers?
