Just curious, are any ehMacians currently using Aperture? Anyone done the switch from iPhoto to Aperture? Likes, dislikes?
I have been using Aperture for about a year. The last iteration fixed a lot of the issues (the initial version was dog slow).
- Aperture makes sense if you have a huge library of photos as you can organize your library the way you want to a lot better.
- If there are features in iPhoto that you do not have in Aperture, you can continue to use them as the libraries are available in each programme.
- I find that I do most of my editing in Aperture. I am not a Photoshop Ninja but I find that I rarely use it now. Great from a work flow perspective, in that you are just using just one piece of software. This trend is increasing as there are a lot of plug-ins that are becoming available.
- Check out this web page to get an idea of what you can accomplish with Aperture: Inside Aperture
- Many folks prefer the Adobe competitor, Lightroom. I do not have an opinion on this software as I have not really had a change to it.
- Not as intuitive as iPhoto. You have to invest some time to learn the software; but, I found that it was worthwhile.
I believe that you can download a trial version - hopefully still the case, if so, give Aperture a spin.
More generally, iPhoto is increasingly a 'show' application with core editing and filing done elsewhere. I love the ease of use and synch with my various gadgets, but I only put my 'extremes in it" very good pics and those not worthy of serious editing but whic hcorrespond to fun events.
It is also - obviously - the place of choice for those short video clips. I wonder how this will cahnge when we *all* have high-end video SLRs in a couple of years...
