An Exit Ramp For Apple’s Aperture and iPhoto In Favor Of New ‘Photos’ App

By on

Almost all of us are fond of taking pictures, whether we are walking in a park, shopping in a mall or simply inside ?our house. We want to capture every moment that we spend with our friends, family and even with strangers. Since we take pictures every day, we would want to store those captured moments in a safe place anytime and anywhere without any hassle at all.

Apple is now making it possible with their new Photos App and?iCloud?Photo Library. Each video and picture you take will be stored in?iCloud?which gives you easy access to your photo library from any device.

This new Photos App will replace Aperture, a professional photo-editing software. Apple told news site The Loop that they have decided to ditch Aperture, which is not really good news for heavy-duty photo-editing Mac users.

“With the introduction of the new Photos app and?iCloud?Photo Library, enabling you to safely store all of your photos in?iCloud?and access them from anywhere, there will be no new development of Aperture,? Apple said in a statement to The Loop. ?When Photos for OS X ships next year, users will be able to migrate their existing Aperture libraries to Photos for OS.”

These new apps from Apple are expected to debut with OS X Yosemite this fall. It guarantees to be more user-friendly and intuitive. These apps were presented and demoed at WWDC 2014, the OSX 10.01 built in Photos App will permit users to modify their photos and save it through the cloud.

Apple’s choice to drop Aperture will probably baffle numerous users who’ve depended on the product for a long time. It is said that Aperture users would still be able to migrate their libraries to Photos app OSX 10.01. And other apps like Final Cut Pro and Logic Pro will continue as normal.

Now the question is, will these pro products have a limited life span?

No doubt, Apple is making our lives easier with the use of our?iPhones?and?iPads; however, with all the?optimization?going on, I doubt that they have a long shelf life.
