Every time I pack up and move from one house to another, I say, “I’m never doing this again!” Moving is laborious, tedious, and at times, frustrating.
Switching from Aperture to Lightroom can feel the same.

Adobe’s Lightroom Mobile app, introduced in April, was notable for two things: it brought many of the editing capabilities of the desktop version of Lightroom to the iPad, and it opened a connection for synchronizing photos between both destinations. You could add photos in your Lightroom library to collections on a Mac or a Windows PC and mark the collections to sync with Lightroom Mobile via Creative Cloud.
Lightroom Mobile 1.1, released this week, adds a few new features but, more importantly, now runs on the iPhone. That development doesn’t just add one more device on which you can view and edit your photos. It could fundamentally change the way you work with the photos you capture using Apple’s camera-that-also-happens-to-be-a-phone.

Aperture or Lightroom?
Some photographers just can’t decide. And to be honest, for image editing, they don’t have to.
That’s because both Aperture and Lightroom can be configured to share the same collection of master images. Keep all of your photos in one directory—on your computer or external hard drive—then “point”each application to them.

A recent Gizmodo article, “Are Colorized Photos Rewriting History?”, discussed the popularity of colorized historical photos on the web. Author Matt Novak expresses a fear that these photographs distort history and may eventually be perceived as the original image.

When will we see Aperture 4?
I get this question all the time.
The implication is that users want new tools for their favorite photo management app. I have no idea when we’ll see Aperture 4. But on my Mac, I’m exploring new image editing techniques all the time thanks to the app’s plugin architecture. Companies like onOne, Google, and Photomatix are supplying me with the ingredients to spice up my existing pictures.

One of the real advantages of digital photography over film photography is metadata. As soon as we capture a photograph digitally, we have a tremendous amount of information available about that photo. This information is generated automatically by the camera, so it relates primarily to the equipment and camera settings used to capture it.
For example, you can easily review which camera and lens were used, as well as the aperture, shutter speed, and ISO setting. These details can be helpful when evaluating images later or searching for a particular photo. They can even help you improve your photography by letting you identify the settings that worked best for a particular situation.
