Last week, Apple made an announcement that they would no longer be developing the popular photo management software Aperture and have instead decided to discontinue it. The reason being was that the company wanted to focus its time and energy developing the new Photos App. Since the Photos App is still in the works, there has not been a lot of information released to the public but it is known that the app will offer “professional grade features such as image search, editing, effects, and most notably, third party extensibility.”
With some of these features, it will be interesting to see what the final product will look like and if it will become a full fledged replacement for Aperture or possibly something more. What will prove to be interesting is the third party extensibility feature and what it means for the users as far as editing capabilities go, but I guess will have to wait and see what unfolds for Apple’s new Photos app.
