Lightroom For Aperture Users Part 3 is now Available

In the latest in this ongoing series looking at Lightroom from the perspective of an Aperture switcher, I’m going to take a look at importing. Getting your images into Lightroom is obviously one of the most important parts of any workflow. Although it might look completely different, Lightroom’s import dialog is fairly similar to Aperture’s in terms of operation, but it important to be aware of are some of the key differences.…

Preset Store Closing Down Sale – Final Chance to get my Aperture Presets

As mentioned a few times already, I’ll be closing down the preset store soon, as with Apple’s decision to cease development of Aperture, there’s not much point in continuing to sell Aperture presets. However, if you are planning to still use Aperture for the next while and want to get any of the Presets before they’re gone, I’ve put them on Sale till the store closes.…

It will also work for those who want to get their images out in a structured way to use with other software.…

Lightroom For Aperture Users Part II – Replicating Aperture’s Projects in Lightroom

In the second instalment of my Lightroom for Aperture Switchers series I talk about ways to emulate Aperture’s Project metaphor in Lightroom using collections and collection sets. I also try and clear up some of the confusion surrounding the Folders panel and the myth that you have to manage your images “twice” in Lightroom. The new instalment is up now over on the Lightroom Diary.

Aperture Blog Update

I just wanted to update you on the plans for the blog. I’m not posting any more posts on the Aperture blog until the reboot in a few weeks time. I’ll post links to my Aperture to Lightroom series, but I’m not doing any more posts on Aperture. I’ve just too much to do and I can’t keep updating three different websites at the moment.…

Video: A Quick Look at Lightroom for Aperture Users

I’ve been promising this all week, and I’ve finally got it finished. This was kind of rushed, and it wasn’t really rehearsed, so I kind of meander a bit at times, so apologies. I wanted to give you an overview of Lightroom, so what I did was took a project (i.e. a couple of images) through from start to finish. I started by importing them, then went through the process of narrowing them down quickly, and then went through the processing of the images in the develop module, before finally taking a look at exporting them for posting on a website.…

Lightroom for Aperture Users – Part 1

I mentioned in my last post that I was planning to do a “Lightroom for Aperture Users” set of training but that I wasn’t sure what form that I wanted it to take. Well, thanks to lots of feedback, I’ve decided how I’m going to approach it, which I think will be fair to everyone.

I’m going to start by doing a series of blog posts on the Lightroom Diary in a special series for Aperture switchers.…

Thoughts on Apple’s Decision to Discontinue Aperture, The Future and More

Now that Apple’s bombshell (although not really a bombshell after 4 years without a major upgrade) news on Friday that it was discontinuing Aperture has settled in, I wanted to take some time to share my thoughts on the decision, what it means for me, and what it means for the community of Aperture users. I also wanted to let you know what the future of this site will be and some things I have in motion to help you move on.…

Apple told Macworld that “When Photos for OS X ships next year, users will be able to migrate their existing Aperture libraries to Photos for OS X”

Apple has also stated that while they have decided to discontinue Aperture they have no intention of abandoning pros and will continue to develop both Final Cut Pro and Logic.…

Get Raw for Photoshop CC 2014

If you’ve used my little apple script workflow for bringing the raw file into Photoshop as a smart object, and you’ve updated to Photoshop 2014 then you’ve probably discovered by now that the script no longer works. Because the application name has to be hard coded into the script (well, there is probably a different way to do it) I had to update the code for it to work.…
