MacVoices #14180: Derrick Story On Aperture, Lightroom and the Future of Image Management

Digital photography expert Derrick Story  shares his thoughts on the discontinuance of Aperture and what we should all do next. Is Adobe Lightroom in your future? Or the successor photo app from Apple, Photos? Is building a new photography app from the ground up a good idea? Derrick discusses the options, the costs associated with each, and his rationale for his personal choice.
