I loved using Aperture and it's organizational structure and hesitated until earlier this year to finally give it up and go to Lightroom. Aperture was just becoming too buggy in Mojave and when I got a Canon 5D Mark IV, Aperture wouldn't read the RAW files and so the time was right to switch. It's a process, but I'm finally to the point where I've figured out how to replace the Aperture Projects structure with Collections. It took a while to discern the difference between the Library panel and Collections and where and how master photos are stored (don't move anything on your hard drive!) and Lightroom, though not perfect, really does work a lot better and I love getting it regularly updated.
With the window for a Mavericks event closing on the 31st, it looks like it'll be another year (last one was in Feb. 2016) without an actual contest. There were still some good opportunities for Mavericks-like waves in Half Moon Bay last Saturday.
yes, the big problem I'm anticipating with the move to Lightroom is replicating how Aperture organizes every import into Projects and then you can build out albums, folders, etc., from there. I do a lot of work where I'll shoot a Little League game, for example, and have several individual packages that I produce from one shoot and in Aperture it was very easy for me to organize with albums. I anticipate big changes trying to do the same thing in Lightroom, though I'm looking forward to all of the enhancements Lightroom provides compared to an application that hasn't been upgraded in five years.
I love Aperture, love the way it works organizing images compared to Lightroom, so have continued to use it organizing my 100,000+ photos while using plug-ins like Luminar 3 for the heavy editing. But Aperture has been quirky on my 2015 iMac since I upgraded to Mojave (haven't upgraded to Mojave on my 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro and it still works great). I recently got a Canon 5D Mark IV, however, and Aperture doesn't accept its RAW images so I'm finally going to bite the bullet and move to Lightroom. I'm in the process of using Aperture Exporter to move everything over. Wish me luck!
I still use Aperture/iPhotos and had some major problems with Mojave, but things are working fine now after installing several updates. iWeb works as well. Those are the two older programs I'm most worried about.
I paid $1600 for a pretty flawless version from a credible seller two years ago and love it. But $1000 for a flawed version? Nah.
does sound very fishy. No reason to ask for an iTunes card; that's something they can get at any store with gift cards.
Only time I shot rugby was a couple of years ago when Sacramento had a pro team. Shot at the time with a Canon 7D Mark II and mainly a Tamron 150-600 and Canon 70-200 2.8. You can get some great grimaces with a long lens .. .
I had a couple of pretty awesome seats (literally first row for one game) for a Dodgers-Nationals doubleheader in D.C. in May 2018 and used the 18-400 exclusively (it's easy to get into a game) along with a Canon 7D Mark II. I usually shoot full-frame and with better lenses, but I was pretty happy with the results.
yep, same here. My iMac is late 2015 and it crashes repeatedly, especially in Safari. Plus this is the first Mac OS where Aperture doesn't work right. I've tried everything, short of a reinstall (though I believe Aperture is finally done). Luckily I have a MacBook that I haven't upgraded to Mojave so I'm still functioning photo-wise. I'll probably wait to see if the Luminar DAM works for me (due in mid-December) and if not, go to Lightroom, which I've tried and don't like at all.
