An interesting take of the Apple Aperture decision...
 
Bummed about the upcoming death of aperture and iPhoto, announced today? I'm an Aperture user, so I was disappointed, but then I read this post at ApertureExpert that has me at least a bit hopeful. If Apple builds in extension support to the new Photos app, then the Photos app could really just be the starting point and central repository, with hooks into any other app you want (that supports it).

Great blog post. Have to say, I'm very optimistic about the new Photos app and ecosystem, but then, I'm not a Pro photographer ;-)

Any ideas folks?
 
Is there a way to mark a Tweet that I write with a # that then posts it/duplicates it using a different twitter account?

I can do something similar to selectively copy a tweet to my Facebook page, via IFTTT, but I think IFTTT only allows me to be signed in to one Twitter account at a time.

That's not a bad shout - I'll do some more digging to see what I can find.

So Apple have finally admitted that Aperture is a dead duck - I have so much time invested in the App, I wondered if anyone can share their workflows for moving across to Lightroom?

What has been your experience?

Thanks,

Paul

Apple have stated there will be a migration from Aperture to Photos. Adobe have suggested they will work on streamlining a migration to Lightroom but have already said it will not include edits.

Inside An iPhone

I couldn't stop staring at this gif for 5min straight. Fascinating. Found it here: http://imgur.com/RhxyqVu

After attempting to find the person who created it, I eventually gave up because I wasn't getting anywhere. Someone find the creator of this and let me know so I can credit them for this work of genius!

Hi all, love my XE-1 / 18-55 combo, but now looking to add something a little faster / smaller for wedding reception work, as a back up to my Nikon gear.

Has anyone have a view / experience of the 35 1.4?

Other options?

Thanks.

My go-to lens on my X-Pro1. Superb quality, in addition to being faster (wider aperture). The focal length is pretty versatile as well.

Not sure if it's faster in terms of focus speed since I've never used the 18-55mm. I imagine it would be much and such. 

If size is an issue, the 27mm seems to be quite a lot smaller, and not too much wider angle. Not as fast though (it's f/2 I think?) (Edit: f2.8, so actually not faster at all!)
