Photography Workflow with Apple Technology


Lots of good information on how to integrate all of your images, from your iOS devices to digital cameras, using Apple technology such as Photo Stream, iPhoto, and Aperture. This week, I join David Sparks and Katie Floyd on the Mac Power Users show to discuss photography workflow.

I cover iPhone photography, Photo Stream, iPhoto, Aperture, back up, and more during this 30 minute podcast. It's a good conversation with lots of tips. I think you'll enjoy it.

just listened. great version of the podcast!

Derrick, I really enjoyed your appearance on MPU. The Lightroom/"Apple Ecosystem" issue has been frustrating me for years—there is just no good way to incorporate LR with iOS/iPhoto/Aperture. I know that as a dedicated Mac user, Aperture is my best bet, especially on the organization end. The problem is on the editing side: I have been using Lightroom at work for years and have grown fairly proficient at it (not to mention that features like noise canceling and lens correction are awesome). So much so that every time I try Aperture, I quickly get confused as to what does what.

What is needed is a guide or (long) post on how Lightroom's panels/features/concepts map to Aperture's. Sort of like one of those Mac "switcher" guides for users coming from Windows. Honestly, I'd pay for that. I have searched high and low, and am really surprised that no one has written about this. Surely I'm not the only one... Given your experience, it seems like you're uniquely qualified to help!
