With the announced coupe de disgrace of the superb Aperture and the waffle about a pig-in-a-poke that will replace it(thanks Apple…) I’m making the shift to Phase One Capture One Pro 7. I’ve got a steep learning curve, and a lot of recovery work porting my back catalogue. At least this way I won’t have another year’s photography to shift.

This is the first image to come out; so far, though there are usability losses over Aperture, especially with the browser and metadata, I’m impressed. The image editing features are really rather superb; there’s no going back.
