Make the move from Aperture to Lightroom

by Aperture Presets in Aperture presets Comments: 0 tags: adobe lightroom

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom lets you organize, edit, share, and perfect any image, anywhere. Superior tools give you amazing levels of control to do just about anything — remove objects, reduce noise, correct lens distortion, sharpen images, adjust perspectives, even edit video. And it’s from Adobe, the leader in digital imaging.

Importing all your images from Apple Aperture to Adobe Lightroom is extremely simple and only takes few clicks. This simple migration will give you access to the best professional photo editing application, Lightroom.

As announced by Adobe, we are proud to introduce the Aperture and iPhoto import plugin for Lightroom 5. The plugin allows Aperture and iPhoto customers to migrate their images and key metadata (such as keywords, events, project structure) into Lightroom catalogs in a seamless way.

If you are using Lightroom 5.7 and above, note that the Aperture and iPhoto import plugin is integrated into Lightroom and you do not need to install any plugin. Please ensure that you are using Lightroom 5.7 or later by using the Help->Check for updates menu option in Lightroom 5 then proceed as per image below.

If you are using Lightroom 5.6 or lower, please follow the manual installation instructions below.

  1. Ensure that you’re using Lightroom 5.6. You can check your Lightroom version by going to Help->System Info inside Lightroom. If not using Lightroom 5.6, please update to the 5.6.
  2. Download the plugin zip file to a known location (such as your desktop)
  3. Double click on the downloaded zip file to extract it.
  4. Navigate to the Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom folder. To do so, use the Go menu item within Finder. Please note that the Library folder is hidden by default and that you will need to hold down the Option/Alt key to make it visible.
  5. Check to see if there is a Modules folder. If not, please create this folder.
  6. Copy the extracted aperture_iphoto_importer.lrplugin file to the Modules folder.
  7. Start Lightroom.

Apple Releases Aperture 3.6 With OS X Yosemite Support

by Aperture Presets in Aperture presets, Yosemite Comments: 0

Apple has released Aperture 3.6 for Mac bringing support for OS X Yosemite.

Aperture combines the control and speed pros want for demanding photo tasks with the easy learning curve iPhoto users need to step up to an advanced photo tool. It has been fully optimized for the Retina display on the new MacBook Pro, letting you browse and edit high-resolution images with remarkable clarity and resolution. And with a new unified photo library, you can now move seamlessly from iPhoto to Aperture — and back — without having to import, export, or reprocess your photos. Aperture is packed with innovative adjustment tools to refine your images, including a revolutionary Auto White Balance that uses skin tones to correct color casts, and a professional Auto Enhance that applies Exposure, Vibrancy, Curves, and more with a single click. It also includes powerful Brushes for painting image adjustments onto parts of your photo, and dozens of ready-to-use professional photo Effects. You can share your photos directly to Facebook, Flickr and SmugMug and add them to shared photo streams using iCloud. You can also showcase your best work as an impressive coffee table-style photo book or as stunning slideshows that weave together photos, audio, text, and HD video.

What’s New In This Version:
• This update addresses compatibility with OS X Yosemite and stability improvements

You can purchase Aperture from the App Store for $79.99.
