iPhoto and Aperture no longer available for purchase from the Mac App Store
Following the release of OS X 10.10.3 earlier this week, which included the new Photos app for OS X, Apple has removed iPhoto and Aperture from the Mac App Store. Both apps are now unavailable for purchase, though they can still be downloaded from the Purchases tab in the store by those who already own the applications.
While Photos will serve as the primary way to manage and edit your photos on OS X going forward, dedicated users of iPhoto and Aperture might want to hold on to those apps for right now. If you're feeling ready to make the jump, however, check out the links below for instructions on moving your iPhoto and Aperture libraries over to Photos.

1) can't I sort my Albums (e.g. the Albums in the 'iPhoto Events' folder) by date? Having 1300 iPhoto Events not sorted by date is quite useless.
2) I assume that the ability that iPhoto had to export photos as a simple website (that I could adapt to share with colleagues on our company's intranet) is now gone? That's a disappointment and has broken my workflow Overall, Photos for OS X seems nice, but I doesn't do for me what iPhotos used to do. I am disappointed :-(
