Apple drops Aperture and iPhoto

Aperture and iPhoto
Apple has just announced that it was abandoning the development of Aperture the photo management software. It is software for photographers and iPhoto which can be used by the general public.

Many people were waiting for Aperture X for many years. Rumors are that the Cupertino Company is working on a new version of its software for photographers. It was also believed that it would occur shortly after the release of the Mac Pro.

 However, the professional application of Apple - unlike Final Cut Pro X - has never been revised to exploit the potential of new workstations from Apple. With the latest version - 3.5.1, Aperture is still available on the Mac App Store at a price of € 69.99.

 Instead, Apple will offer a brand new software that will be available next year, suitable application for iOS 8 (which it will download in the fall). It will be obviously optimized for OS X and in the meantime, of course still possible to use Aperture and / or iPhoto on your Mac.

 Aperture had attracted many professionals at a time; many of them had ended up opting out for competitor software, including Lightroom. The main complaint about Aperture is that the pace of updates too slow.

Along with this announcement, Apple has reassured its professional customers that Final Cut Pro X and Logic Pro will continue to evolve. Its main advantage is that is its integration with iCloud. This application will see all photos stored in the cloud.

It incorporates the concepts of iPhoto while drawing operation photos for iOS. This application will require OS X Yosemite to work. Craig Federighi showed that the application would have a good number of tools to rework its images in real time. Photos will probably have no trouble to go further iPhoto.
