NSFW: Don't throw out the Aperture baby with the bathwater

Just because Apple's pulling Aperture from the Mac App Store doesn't mean you have to pull it from your workflow.

Apple sent out an email to Aperture owners this week reminding them that as soon as Photos for OS X goes into general distribution, Aperture will no longer be available for purchase from the Mac App Store. The usual gnashing of teeth and tearing of hair erupted soon afterwards. I have just one thing to ask people who are complaining about this: Why are you so anxious to get rid of Aperture?

Photos for OS X first look: The future of ubiquitous photography approaches

At WWDC 2014, Apple showed off not just a new Photos for Mac app, but an entirely new approach to photo and video management. Combined with Photos for iOS 8 and iCloud Photo Library, it promised to store all your visual assets safely up on Apple's servers and make them available across all your devices — iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV — and via iCloud.com on the web. It also promised both speed, storing your most frequently accessed photos and videos locally and in full fidelity, and storage efficiency, leaving your less frequently accessed photos and videos on the cloud, a tap or click away.

More importantly, Apple promised all of this as a part of something greater — photos and videos as core components of the company's operating systems.

Now, some seven months later, Apple has seeded the first Photos for Mac beta to developers and testers. There will be a public beta at some point, and a full release this spring, so this is really just the tip of the Photos iceberg. But in the meantime, we've got an FAQ written by iMore's Serenity Caldwell to tide you over along with some of my first impressions, and an answer to the question we've been asking most — in a post-iPhoto, post-Aperture world, how well will modern Mac owners be served by the Photos app?

Keep calm, Photos for Mac still on

Apple's Photos for Mac was for shown off last summer at WWDC 2014 but isn't scheduled to ship until "early 2015". Apple hasn't said anything more specific about the schedule than that, but today some concern arose when people realized that, at some point, information about Photos for Mac had disappeared from Apple.com.
