Lightroom Leaving Beta – Will Aperture Sales Increase?

Filed under: Announcements — Scott @ 2:24 pm

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is about to get a bunch more expensive. In other words, it will no longer be free. The retail price before April 30 will be $199. After April 30, it will be $299. That matches what Apple is charging for Aperture.

Since Lightroom has been free of charge up until this point, I believe that Aperture sales have been slower than would be expected. As of April 30th, when the two programs cost the same amount to purchase, I expect Aperture sales to increase, since the playing field will be leveled.

Now don’t get me wrong, I am not saying Lightroom won’t sell well, I am just saying Aperture will sell better than it has been, since it will no longer be competing against a free application.

iStockphoto Updates Aperture Plugin

Filed under: Announcements — Scott @ 4:51 am

The new version of Apple’s Aperture iStockphoto plugin is here. You need the latest version of Aperture (1.5.2), then download the iStockphoto plug-in.

Store, process, and organize your images in Aperture, and then batch-upload them to iStockphoto directly with the new plug-in.

Thanks for the great response. All the specially-priced Aperture training DVDs from lynda.com are gone but you can still watch or buy the videos from Lynda’s site.

Meantime, see you at MacWorld.
