Talk about killing two birds with one stone: Aperture and iPhoto, two apps well-known as either being incredible useful or incredibly annoying to Mac OS X users, will receive a death blow. You might be asking: “Then what about those of us who edit photos?”.
Well, Apple plans to take care of this — when Photos for OS X is launched.
To compensate for all the trouble to seceding to Adobe’s Lightroom and other apps in the same cateogry, Apple will be providing tools to migrate one’s existing work, while also building on Photos for OS X so that it becomes as formidable as Aperture was (which will also receive a Yosemite compatibility update).
This should all be cleared up later in the year, with a purported early 2015 launch, so until then, we wait.
