Aperture Is Dead. Long Live Photos! —Aperture Expert
Undoubtedly Apple will lose some users to Lightroom. That’s inevitable, and I’m not going to say “they’ll be back!”. But they probably will :-)
As before, for most of us diehard Aperture users, we’ve added plugins or other apps to enhance the Aperture experience to do everything Lightroom does, and more. There’s no reason for that to change. At least now, finally, we can see the future, and we don’t need a crystal ball to do it.
Timera 2 is the second iteration of a rather unique then-and-now compositing app that crowdsources photographs from around the globe and allows you to easily document the changes that have taken place in the world around you over the decades.
Through a massive user-generated database of historical images, appropriately geotagged to their location, Timera users can create unique then-and-now photos by overlaying the archive photo with a photo they just took. Read more…
Google’s acquisition of Nik Software some time ago caused quite a stir in the photography community. Creators of a number of plugins, filters and the editing app Snapseed, Nik Software had a lot to offer Google in the world of photography.
And little by little, as Google has continued to improve its photo platform and services, more and more influence and integration from the acquisition is making its way to the end user. Case in point is Google+ Photos’ latest update, which features a number of Snapseed-esque editing tools. Read more…
Although still far from its public debut, more and more information about the new Photos app for OS X is making its way to the public.

I stuck with Aperture for so long for one feature: Photo Stream (now called iCloud Photo Sharing). It works like this: I snap a photo on my iPhone (or iPad) and it’s immediately synced to the cloud and available in Aperture or iPhoto.
It sounds simple, but it’s the reason that I didn’t migrate to Adobe Lightroom years ago.
When you’re working with multiple photos in Photoshop, one of the biggest pains turns out to be management. Despite being around for over 20 years, Photoshop’s approach to dealing with multiple documents still feels rather archaic or, to put it technically, a pain in the butt.
In a sneaky move that the company probably hoped nobody would notice, Adobe turned on “Desktop App Usage Information” by default in the most recent update to Creative Cloud. This means that, unless they manually go in and disable the feature, CC users’ app usage data is currently being shared with Adobe.
Fortunately, disabling the feature is pretty easy, assuming you don’t want that info shared with Adobe. Read more…
Last year we featured StreamNation: a cloud storage solution built with photographers in mind. Well, a few days ago, StreamNation released a new cloud storage tool to the photography world that builds upon their existing services.
Called Shutter, it’s a new iOS app that will woo you away from your stock camera app by offering automated and unlimited storage of your media (plus a bunch of other useful sharing features)… for free! Read more…
