The Adobe Blog writes: Apple's Aperture News. In it, Jeffrey Tranberry says "We're looking into a way for Aperture customers to more easily migrate to Lightroom." The current solution, frankly, sucks:
We’re working on a way for iPhoto and Aperture customers to more easily migrate to Lightroom. As of right now, your best bet is to save any metadata to your files, then import the files directly from disk. (Note: Aperture develop settings aren’t compatible. If you want to preserve the look of your image edits, export rendered versions of your files from Aperture to import to Lightroom).
This article was also linked at John Beardsworth's "Lightroom Solutions."
I'm going to hold off for a bit, but it is still very sad to me that Aperture is done, dead, deceased.
P.S. Apple Stops Development of Aperture - Good stuff there too about relying on Apple with our data. Other good pieces: Aperture is Dead. Long Live Photos! and Comment Follow-up on the Demise of Aperture.
