The great thing about the new Photos app is that you will be able to work on your photos on any of you Apple devices and the changes will propagate in iCloud Photo Library so all changes will be everywhere.
The Keynote mentioned early 2015 for the Photos App.
Maybe they will make it available in any browser including Windows, like they have the iWork Apps

The 5GB Apple currently offers is not going to be at all sufficient for anyone to do anything with the iCloud photo library. My iPhone already needs more than that just for its backup.

OK, so I'm not gonna get Aperture 4. That sucks. I use it every single day. Now I'm supposed to rent software from Adobe. I need to hear more about Yosemite Photos. I have nearly 200,000 images in Aperture.

Watch the price of Lightroom 5 go up.
Glad I snagged it last december when it was $70.

Wow.

But if they keep developing it for Yosemite, it could go on for some time. Figure the rest of this year,, Yosemite for a year, and then Yosemite should be good for at least a few more year?

Apple also said it is working with Adobe to help users transition to its Lightroom app for Mac.

At least theres that?

Its only $10 a month for Adobes "photography" bundle -- which to me seems like a great buy. Even if it is for the rest of your life...

I'm not renting software. The can sell it to me. I already have too many entities nickel and dime'ing my bank accounts. Fortunately, it looks like the latest Lightroom can be bought separately for $136 at Amazon. Probably can get it cheaper. [www.amazon.com]

Hi everyone,

Now that Apple has done this with Photos, it needs to tear apart iTunes and rebuild it from scratch. Turn it into a music only app. Create a Movies app for video management. Create an Books app for management of eBooks and create a dedicated app for managing iOS devices. Sure, it's several apps. But, each one could be best in class and when used in conjunction with each other, blow the doors off the kludge that is iTunes.

Apple should sell iTunes to Microsoft where it would fit right in.

I'm of two minds on this.

For one thing, I do find it very annoying trying to curate photos between iOS and OS X at the moment. For example, I just recently copied a bunch of photos from my iPad over to iPhoto on the mac and lost all of the edits I'd made.

On the other hand, I don't want all my photos to be in the cloud. I have concerns about privacy, backup, and copyright, not to mention being required to pay money to maintain them forever.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Not pleased. I really like Aperture. And I'll continue to use it until it breaks. I am NOT subscribing to anything, TYVM.

You probably need to export the iPad images first, then transfer them to iPhoto (a chore). You should at least backup the images you keep to something like flickr. That's 1tb of free space. It's private (enough) and you have full copyright control.

I'm thinking that just might happen, sooner than we think.

We only the one iTunes program. So we're all dependent on the taste of whoever is in charge of this one program. "No Cover Flow!" and there it goes.

Man, Scott Bourne called this last year. He switched to Lightroom because Aperture development had slowed down quite a bit. He wasn't sure it was ever going to pick up again.

The problem is moving volumes of work managed by Aperture to Lightroom. I have Lightroom 4 and it's fine, but I know Aperture so well.

iSync was part way there for handling devices. It could sync contacts and such, but Apple never added media support, nor did Apple add any support for iOS devices. Something needs to be done with iTunes, but I'm long past caring. iTunes has needed some TLC, or chainsaw to break off components, for almost a decade now. Who can wait a decade for a company to take something seriously?

I still maintain my music in iTunes. But I use Google Music to listen to what it manages since Apple won't put an iTunes app on Android, which in my mind is foolish.

Yeah, but that's why you have to be out in front of these "focus adjustments". When Apple stops caring, they rarely redouble their efforts on the product. Easier said than done of course smiling smiley

The good thing is, I'm not going to live forever so there is only so long that I have to care about these issues. They're just pictures Camera But I wish I hadn't "bet on Aperture over Lightroom years ago because they rarely updated it.

Hopefully the new app will allow an easy import of iphoto libraries? I have thousands of pics organized into albums that I don't want to have to redo.

Current iPhoto is even worse than iTunes - that's saying a lot.

If Apple brings a lot of tools from Aperture into the new Photo program, that will be good for a lot of people.

I just started using Aperture, but I will not bother migrating over.

I DO need to rebuild my family photo library. Should I do it in Aperture anyway?

Aperture and iPhoto share the same library, so it doesn't really matter.

Both are being EOL'd, right? Why use either? This is a "Apple needs to prove they aren't dropping the ball" moment. I'd grab a new solution ASAP.

True. That's totally fair. How about this? Pick the path of least resistance now, but be ready to migrate when the time comes.

I never had any faith in Apple continuing to support Aperture so I picked up Lightroom at version 3 and I can't wait till they dump iTunes.
