Aperture —> LR? #1

Hello all,

I was a long time Aperture user and loved it. I was resistant to migrating away and then when I was busy w/ school the past few years, I went for a long period of not having an opportunity to use it at all.

I’m now faced with having to migrate about 38,000 photos out of Aperture before upgrading from OS X Mojave.

I know that in the past LR had some issues importing from Aperture (e.g. not importing some files with certain special but otherwise legal characters in their file name).

Joseph’s live interview with the developer of Aperture Exporter made a pretty good case for using Aperture Exporter as the intermediary for that import to LR. But that interview is about 4 years old. Is Aperture Exporter still a preferred way to go? Or has LR improved their import capability to make a direct import from Aperture the preferred route?

While I’m at it, can anyone make a good case for using iPhoto instead of LR?

And finally, any other nuggets of advice are always appreciated. [grin]

Thanks in advance,


Frank Kurzawa
