  • I did suggest that 5 days ago.
  • Yes, all good here too. It's always been a common thing to see complaints of problems after a system update. More often than not though, they are more an indication that there's been an underlying ...
  • Ok, so it was a bit misleading. iPhones don't create DNGs natively, but software that uses the iPhone camera can create DNGs from the raw sensor data. FWIW, *all* cameras start with raw data, which ...
  • OK, so Photos itself isn't slow, it's the workflow that is for the way you work? Most operations I use are far faster with Photos, launching in the first place to viewing edited images in the browser.
  • Wow, how misinformed is that! It's definitely not slow, at least not here, most of it works much faster than Lightroom does (at least on my iMac it does anyway). Proprietary? - ALL digital asset ...
  • Might have a look myself, it looks promising. It's at a good price at the moment too. Likewise, I dumped LR, although I still have my library installed on a separate drive. I also moved to Photos ...
  • I don't think so, I believe the iCloud storage system works so that doesn't happen. All your master images are stored in  iCloud and only downloaded as required to each device, and even then I ...
  • Horses for courses and all that. I too found LR pretty awful as a UI, and currently about the slowest editor I have tried recently - worse when trying to simply view images already edited.
  • just open the Aperture library in Photos and it'll migrate it and create a new copy of the library (it doesn't take up any more space though, as it 'links' to the existing Aperture library). You ...
  • Not sure why that's happening, but moving to a new HDD is not too difficult. You are using a 'managed' library by the looks of it. Firstly, make sure you have reformatted the drive to MacOS HFS+ ...
  • I'm pretty sure we covered that it works as a Photos extension. Non-destructive editing is nothing unusual in a Photos extension anyway - however, once Photos applies any additional edits (or you ...
  • Looks OK, would seem to be a bit of overkill as a Photos extension though, as it duplicates a lot of the functions (such as organising etc.) I haven't found anything else works that well myself, I ...
  • I think the only options you might have are to migrate to Lightroom, and try it's Aperture Importer tool, or migrate to Photos. These, I think, are the only ways you have to maintain keywords and ...
  • To be even simpler, just use Finder to store in folders, and you you can also hit spacebar and use Quickview to scroll through a folder of images, hit Command-Delete to delete rejects. Then deal ...
  • I too have not used parametric to describe a what these are. Historically they are more commonly referred to as 'non-destructive image editors', and 'Digital Asset Managers' (or DAMs). Apps such as ...
  • Oh well, it might be not able to use the latest updates perhaps. Aperture was always capable of using older Raw processing versions (there used to be a pop-up menu in the Fine Tuning panel to ...
  • No, it's not wrong. Aperture uses the Raw processing engine but into the OS, as do Photos, iPhoto, Preview and Finder, and always have done so. Aperture is the only one to be able to switch ...
  • I'm not so sure it is just an Apple issue, as I found a lot of Windows users were reporting problems with USB3 as well when I first started noticing the issue. Having read a lot of articles and ...
  • Yes, I have used Jettison, and another similar app too, but I still felt the whole setup was flaky. I did forget to mention, that for me the problem is only with USB3 connection (hub or no hub, it ...
  • I've been trying to fix this for the last three and a half years, so good luck, and if you find a fix please do post it. Have a look here: https://discussions.apple.com/search disk not ejected properly
