Aperture job posting

I noticed a new job posting from Apple yesterday. This sure sounds like a job description for an Aperture engineer.

The new tagline: Aperture -- It's not dead yet!

I figure that one developer has been keeping Aperture alive as a side project during their lunch break the past few years. Maybe they're finally getting a sidekick?

Better yet, maybe they're getting serious about a Photoshop competitor in light of recent events.

That would be a big job since Aperture is only a Lightroom competitor right now and the job is apparently only for Aperture.

What does this say about Lightroom? Pretty sad for Adobe if one Apple Engineer is all it takes to keep Adobe busy with upgrades....

I don't see Adobe having having to worry about a neglected Apple product. Besides, overall Lightrrom is far superior.

I must be missing something. I don't see it mention Aperture anywhere. The job title is for a Sr. Image Software Engineer - Photo Apps.

That's just an opinion....matters less. It's like kids in the playground...my dad is a Fireman. Now run along and play with your Lighrrrrrrrrom;-)

Re: Aperture job posting

It could very well be for Aperture. At first I wondered if it might be for iPhoto, or the iOS mobile apps, but actually reading the description, it contains all of these important words:

- Advanced (i.e., probably not iPhoto)

- OS X imaging technologies (i.e., not iPhone apps)

"Prior experience optimizing image editing and processing pipelines for use on the largest photo libraries is a strong plus."

Sounds like whatever app this job is for, is not for wimps.

Re: Aperture job posting

Maybe if you took the time to read the thread you would see I mentioned it was possible they were looking for some sort of Ps competitor. I didn't say it wasn't for Aperture, just that it might be for something else. Reading comprehension isn't your strong suit, is it?

Many tools (some of which do not exist in Aperture) and capabilities in Lightroom are objectively and factually better. Nothing to do with opinions.

Re: Aperture job posting

How does adobe pay the salaries of all the engineers on the LR team: make a few minor changes, call it a majot upgrade and charge you more to upgrade  than what a new AA costs.

And the LR user interface sucks, mush have been designed by engineers who worked at microsoft, just a clutter of boxes and modules.  Creative people need a much more intutitive interface like mac.
