A message from Apple:

Apple reminds users that Aperture is going away

I am not looking forward to this. Aperture has been central to my photographic workflow for years now, and one way or another I’m going to have to learn a new way of working with images. I’m waiting to see how good Photos proves to be – and how fast it improves – before I stop using Aperture.

If the answers are “not good enough” and “not fast enough”, I may have to buckle down and learn Lightroom. We’ll see.

The Photos beta is promising – but at a pretty early stage still.
