    So the new Apple Photos app is a toy. What can you recommend me to eventually move away from Aperture?

    I'm not worried about having a tool to migrate away from Aperture. I also do not want to upload my photos. I only care about great editing tools.

    No, though it has been a while, so I probably should have kept my mouth shut :lol:

    I did really like it though, so idk.

    I have been investigating, and it seems that Capture One Pro 8 would be the best choice. However, I see that some ex-Aperture users are waiting for Lightroom 6 to be released before making a decision. I have no experience with Lightroom, so I don't know if waiting for the new version would put it at an advantage over Capture One Pro 8.

    I don't know what's up with Lightroom 6. IIRC it was supposed to be announced March 6, then March 20, and nothing so far. I'm waiting to hear about that before I decide if I want to try Capture One.

    I get by just fine with Lightroom 5, but I wouldn't say no to trying Capture One Pro.
