I am running 10.13 beta (macOS High Sierra) and successfully opened a handful of old Aperture libraries using the latest 3.6 Aperture version. I didn’t spend any real time in the app doing anything but I was happy it didn’t immediately crash. :)

Yes Aperture runs fin and my Plugins is still running so all good

and just a small side note the Photos app is getting closer to aperture the DAM is now as it is in aperture 

I am very happy Maybe that will way to go once Aperture dies 

but yes with 200K plus photos Aperture just runs

Hi Henrik,

Thank you for the info and update on photos.

I am curious on what aspect of DAM that photos is now close to Aperture

- does it let you move your files around (from managed to referenced)?

- does it allow me to see the photos as a list to dig into the  metadata?

- can I import images into an external drive and make a back-up copy somewhere?

- star rating (I personally don't use this as much… but know lots that miss that)

- can I create version?


I have not used Photos (or Aperture) for a while, but when I got the phone call regarding Aperture's dismissal, it was mentioned that some capabilities would be incorporated back. I am really hoping that we may get something close. Question is if it will be close enough to Apple gain my trust back.

And the speed with the file system is fantastic 

I see many places that people are say full screen is broken, min was until did a clean install then is is flying 

I am so clad that I kept my Aperture lib even while using Capture one pro 

and Capture one pro well the sucription  is up so off it has gone, and Yes Photo looks promising I will guess next major update of Mac OS  lift and stamp tool will improve and brushes will be there  

Apple might come clear one more time
