Cassandra: More from Apple on Aperture and Photo (link to external source)

Earlier today I put out an article that was in part on the news that Apple was to kill Aperture: "Aperture to end Development; and Arrival of PhotoMatte, Image Exporting Software". That item was also this week's eXtensions article in the Bangkok Post.

In an item just available online on the iDownload blog, Christian Zibreg discusses the reasons for the new Photo application and why Aperture was doomed. There is also an interesting comment (what I was expecting, with fingers crossed) from Apple, part of which reads:

When asked about what Aperture-like features users can expect from the new Photos app, an Apple representative mentioned plans for professional-grade features such as image search, editing, effects, and most notably, third-party extensibility.

There is much more in the Christian Zibreg article, available from iDownload, including some useful links to other sources.
