Aren’t planning to use Photos? Don’t even want to see it, lest you or someone else accidentally launches it, converts your Aperture or iPhoto library, or connects it to iCloud Photo Library? There’s a way to hide it.
Some advanced Aperture users have libraries north of 1TB in size, but iCloud storage plans only go up to 1TB. So what happens if you want to move more than that to the cloud? For now, you can’t. But read on to see how to handle this.
One of the great features in Aperture (but not iPhoto) was the ability to merge libraries. There isn’t a merge feature in Photos, but there is a workaround. This will be critical to know if you want to play with Photos today, then later combine this with your existing Aperture or iPhoto libraries.
