Apple stops development of Aperture

Jim Dalrymple:

Apple introduced a new Photos app during its Worldwide Developers Conference that will become the new platform for the company. As part of the transition, Apple told me today that they will no longer be developing its professional photography application, Aperture.

End of an era. Thank God.

I loved Aperture when it came out, but Lightroom got better exponentially faster than Aperture — right now Lightroom 5 is absolutely great.

I’m excited to see the new Photos app, but I am tempering that.
