In the short time since my last post about migrating from Apple Aperture to Adobe Lightroom, several new resources have emerged to make the switch even easier.
First, there is now a dedicated app called Aperture Exporter than retains metadata like ratings and comments, project hierarchies, and image settings and adjustments. It’s available on the app store for $14.99.
Also, Adobe has published a detailed guide to migrating as well, with an upcoming migration tool to be released soon.
While switching from one editing application to another is never an easy thing to do, I think it’s great that these resources are appearing and providing real options for making a switch without going crazy. And if any of you are having a difficult time with Lightroom, I’m always happy to help.
