Free Aperture to Lightroom Migration Tool

With Apple recently announcing they will stop developing Aperture many users have been wondering what they are going to do next? Some people have said they will keep using Aperture for awhile and others have said they are going to make the move to another software like Adobe’s Lightroom. Apple or Adobe haven’t announced any plans yet for a official migration tool however a developer (Adrian Grah) took matters into his own hands and created his own. It’s a Beta version right now and is free for anyone to download

The tool is in it’s 4th Beta release right now and includes the following features:

  • Export your Aperture library to a set of folders.
  • Retain meticulously crafted project hierarchies.
  • Keep all your metadata including ratings and comments.
  • Original/Master images saved with XMP sidecar files for ultimate compatibility.
  • Aperture adjusted images saved as TIFF or JPEG depending on image rating. Adjustments are baked-in the image.
  • Exports images contained in your albums and smart albums.
  • Converts Aperture flags and colour labels to keywords.
  • Your Aperture libraries are unaltered and unaffected.

  • Download it for free at
