Managing images and workflow
One of the most tiresome aspects of running an all-Apple studio is the inevitable fall-out from the seemingly endless operating system upgrades. It’s probably just as bad for PC users, but we wouldn’t really know as we haven’t had one in this studio for a long time. We’ve been using Aperture to manage images and workflow for years, and never had a problem.
For us it may soon be time to bite the bullet and upgrade from Yosemite to El Capitan as a number of things are beginning to creak a bit, but we are determined to tough it out to the bitter end, if only because it means we can continue using Aperture and put off having to learn Adobe Lightroom a bit longer. Lightroom seems the only other game in town when it comes to processing of images and workflow, but (in our limited experience) has always been a bit slow and clunky compared to Aperture. It is a bit surprising that Apple are letting Aperture die so easily, but they didn’t get to be one of the world’s wealthiest companies by putting customers before profit.
So, if any Apple users out there find a way to keep Aperture going beyond Yosemite, we want to be the first to know!
Aperture is apparently no longer supported by Apple after OS 10.10.5 (Yosemite)
Looking around, we found this site offering some great plug ins which might make the transition easier. If anyone else has tried it, let us know.
