Last month, Apple announced that they were ceasing development of the beloved Apple Aperture. While the software is still usable and available for purchase and download, it has a timeline on how long it will work, as new camera profiles will no longer be supported. Fortunately, Adobe has made the transition a little easier, with a simple transition guide.
The guide, available for free, will help people move their catalogs and settings from Aperture over to Adobe Lightroom 5 with ease. If you're one of those still grasping on to Aperture, perhaps now is a good time to try out Lightroom 5, which is available for $9.99 along with Adobe Photoshop CC through their Photography Plan.
