While Adobe has responded to Apple's announcement that it is ending development of its Aperture professional photo editing and management app for OS X by promising to "double down" on Lightroom, there are other players in the market.Corel is one of those competitors, and the company is hoping to attract some current Aperture users to switch to its After Shot Pro 2 software launched last month.Loop Insight's Jim Dalrymple reported on Friday that Apple was discontinuing its Aperture and i Photo software packages to focus on development of its forthcoming Photos app for OS X and i OS 8 — which was briefly previewed at WWDC earlier this month.As a long-suffering Aperture user with over 38k images in my library (since 2009), the news was both a surprise and a relief.I blog a lot of photos that I shoot with my i Phone, and i Cloud Photo Sharing is the fastest way to get photos onto my Mac.I take a photo with my i Phone and within seconds it appears in Aperture's i Cloud library on my Mac Book Pro.It works like this: I snap a photo on my i Phone (or i Pad) and it's immediately synced to the cloud and available in Aperture or i Photo.
Launched last month, the new After Shot Pro 2 offers competitive upgrade pricing () to Aperture users.
As photographers we spend a lot of time importing, tagging, storing, editing, and exporting images.
Through this series of videos I want to be able to give you tips that should help reduce the time spent through the workflow process.
Apple’s Aperture 3 is the latest release of the software designed to help photographer’s manage, and edit their images. Adobe’s Lightroom 3 runs on both PC and Mac platforms while Aperture is just made for Mac.
If you have a Mac I would try both Lightroom and Aperture so that you can decide which works best for you.
