By Apple (Apple Inc.)

When Photos for OS X is available this spring, Aperture will no longer be available for purchase from the Mac App Store.

Aperture combines the control and speed pros want for demanding photo tasks with the easy learning curve iPhoto users need to step up to an advanced photo tool. It has been fully optimized for the Retina display on the new MacBook Pro, letting you browse and edit high-resolution images with remarkable clarity and resolution. And with a new unified photo library, you can now move seamlessly from iPhoto to Aperture —  and back — without having to import, export, or reprocess your photos. Aperture is packed with innovative adjustment tools to refine your images, including a revolutionary Auto White Balance that uses skin tones to correct color casts, and a professional Auto Enhance that applies Exposure, Vibrancy, Curves, and more with a single click. It also includes powerful Brushes for painting image adjustments onto parts of your photo, and dozens of ready-to-use professional photo Effects. You can share your photos directly to Facebook, Flickr and SmugMug and add them to shared photo streams using iCloud. You can also showcase your best work as an impressive coffee table-style photo book or as stunning slideshows that weave together photos, audio, text, and HD video.

Comments and Ratings for Aperture

How disrespectful to discontinue Aperture (3.6)
3/16/2015 10:46:00 PM 5/5 By Plum Sad
I agree with the reviews written since hearing that Aperture was going to be discontinued. I LOVE Apple products and software and can not figure out why you would discontinue something that it’s obvious that your loyal users use. Apple needs to reconsider your decision.

Get it while you can (3.6)

A helpful note about the complaints that you are forced to purchase this in order to open your old Aperture library in Yosemite: not true, so long as you already have version 3.0 or above. I purchased the physical disc, retail version of Aperture 3, and not through the App Store, and my version 3.0 install still upgrades for free to this 3.6 Yosemite version (as well as to Mavericks, 3.5, on another machine). I’m glad I purchased this nice app before it goes away and before Apple turns all of its computers into iPads with keyboards. I have an iPad, and I love it, but for some things I like a “full” computer with a huge drive, huge screen, comfortable keyboard and unlimited power. By definition, tiny handheld portable devices are never going to satisfy that need. Surely, Apple has enough resources to support both a serious computer with serious apps, and “fun size” iOS and apps at the same time. I don’t care about compatibility/syncing absolutely everything onto a small handheld device. It is undesirable simplifying for unneeded complexity (simplifying apps for unnecessary complex file management — we are not all constantly connected to high speed internet on all devices and machines, and syncing everything as opposed to a few select items can cause a complex mess). Please, Apple, give us the option of having two separate systems: desktop/laptop plus mobile device. You are hurting one platform to help another, which is no good when most people use both platforms.

Please Do not dicontinue (3.6)

Please do not discontinue Aperture!

Warning! High concentration of idiots in Apple management. (3.6)
3/11/2015 9:44:00 AM 5/5 By Elwin User
Since Steve Jobs death the rotting of the Apple started. Many inadequate decisions made showing how detached from reality and incompetent current apple senior management is. Showing their complete lack of vision. It is convulsions of the rotting Apple body vomiting out random pieces of software rather than sprint of a healthy Apple body towards targets defined by VISION. Yosemite - failure from design (eyes getting tired from interface colors and especially fonts) to implementation (bugs everywhere, high GPU usage causing battery drain and killed several older mac laptop GPUs already due to overheating, slow, causing unexpected shutdowns, causing random loss of keyboard and mouse on macbook pro and macbook air). Now pulling plug on Aperture? Apple sr. management people, are you mad? Did you ever tried to understand what Mac is to the Mac users? What makes Mac a complete package and a useful tool? What is drill worth without right drill bits? I am writing this from OSx Mavericks on 2012 macbook pro retina. Seems like the last reasonable OSx.

I’ve been a passionate Apple customer since the Apple ][ and used to Apple toying with the pro market. But in this case, I have to speak up. Apple, here’s how good Aperture is: despite no significant update in years, it’s still the best all around professional photography management app. I know that I alone can’t pursuade you to change your mind. Instead, I’ll list the 10 most important Aperture features I’d like to see in Photos: ADJUSTMENTS: 1. Curves tool: add new, shadow/normal/expanded views, R/G/B curves 2. Skin Smoothing: add new, radius/intensity/detail 3. White Balance: skine tone, natural grey, tempurture & tint 4. Retouch 5. Brush adjustments in/out 6. Lift & Stamp ORGANIZATION & MANAGEMENT: 7. Rating, flagging, and color coding 8. Smart Albums 9. Keywords 10. Export Presets Neither Photoshop, Lightroom, nor Capture One have anything close to Aperture’s Skin Smoother, which I use to clean up dirty backdrops and product surfaces in addition to naturally beautify skin. With excellent sharpness and shadow detail, Aperture’s most recent Canon RAW processor easily beats Lightroom’s. PLEASE don’t kill Aperture. If you do, PLEASE at least include the features above in Photos before Aperture no longer even runs on any future version of OS X. Many of us have tens of thousands of dollars invested in photograpy libraries with ratings & adjustments, such as retouching and skin smoothing, that can’t transfer to Lightroom. Thank you for such a brilliant product.

Don’t Discontinue! (3.6)

I am a professional photographer and chose Aperture over Photoshop years ago! I really hope Apple will reconsider the decision to abandon this program.

you are making a mistake to delete! (3.6)
3/11/2015 5:12:00 AM 5/5 By monkeyjunkey
I spent so much time and money on plugins for aperture! What about future updates? will aperture continue to work with those? Im afraid to update my computer. I can barely afford what I managed to purchase already and now its going to be obsolete? This is insane!

Please don’t discontinue (3.6)
3/10/2015 5:56:00 PM 5/5 By Paulus Stupefactor
While Photos is a nice replacement for iPhoto, Aperture’s extensive capabilities continue to matter to those who need or want something more than a basic photo editor. Aperture is a wonderful program and it would be a terrible shame to see it go. This is one of Apple’s best software products - please don’t impose a less capable option as the only choice.

Don’t change Aperature! (3.6)
3/8/2015 2:51:00 AM 5/5 By Sa Kay
I love this app. I use is all the time. I love that iPhoto syncs with Aperture. This just is devastating!

Why the RAW Compatibility Updates? (3.6)
3/7/2015 8:33:00 PM 5/5 By Oltman-Nebraska
I wonder why, today I received an update for RAW compatible cameras. Why would Apple do this update for a dead Aperture program? One has to wonder……..what is the logic here?
