Adobe Releases the Aperture Importer

Last week Adobe released a plug-in for Lightroom 5.6 (obviously Mac only) that let’s you migrate your Aperture (and iPhoto) libraries over to Lightroom. Probably one of the big questions is what exactly does it import. Well, here’s the list:

• Flags
• Star Ratings
• Keywords
• GPS Data
• Rejects
• Hidden Files
• Color Labels*
• Stacks*
• Face Tags*

*Color Labels, Stacks, and Face Tags will be imported as Lightroom keywords.

Another big question is what happens to the adjustments made to your photos in Aperture or iPhoto. Well, those adjustment scan’t be displayed exactly the same by Lightroom. So the plug-in will import both the original images and copies of the images that have adjustments.

Oh, and the plug-in is free and doesn’t require you to be a Creative Cloud subscriber. Here’s the link read more about it and to download the plug-in.
