Apple Pulls iPhoto and Aperture From the Mac App Store

Apple has pulled iPhoto and Aperture from the Mac App Store following the launch of Photos for OS X.

The new Photos app launched as part of OS X Yosemite 10.10.3. While the app is considered a 'vast improvement' over iPhoto, Aperture users will miss some of the professional image editing features they're accustomed to.

If you're an Aperture user you can still use the app and access it from your list of purchases; however, it will no longer be updated and you may want to consider a switch to Lightroom. Adobe updated Lightroom with an integrated Aperture and iPhoto import utility as of version 5.7.

If you've tried the new Photos app, let us know what you think of the application in the comments!

the best are the users commenting to relax because it is the first version. NO NO NO, it is not the first version, Apple has having Software for photos over their intere life, this is the poorest release for a Photo software they have done until now. It looks 100% like iOS version, that is good just for pack the photos together in a catalog NOTHING ELSE. did they fire the Aperture team? and reduce the people in iPhoto? that is what it seams, just personal schrinking

So what? I'm one of those that have kept aperture and iphoto in case photos isn't ready to have me use it to its full potential, but once it's updated (in which we all have patience for can we not) I'm ready to dump iPhoto's and aperture.

Not impressed, and cannot use IPhoto without updating it from the App Store (It is not on the App Store) I cannot sort my large library by title (I renamed all my photos in each event by a specific title) - sorting by date is no use I also cannot select whether to view hidden photos or not.

Not impressed with the 'missing' features, being able to manually add location in particular and the ability to sort is somewhat limited compared with iPhoto (and Aperture). OK for those of us who still have iPhoto until (if?) Apple return the functionality. For those buying new Macs they may well be in for an unpleasant surprise. One of the most annoying things with Apple - fanfare for the new product but no warning as to what's left out from the old. At best I'd consider this iteration a 'beta' and will stick with iPhoto until this App has missing functionality added back.

It's only the first version. I don't see how it can be wrong. I meant give it a break this is only the beginning like a fresh new 1st generation of it.
