Why I Switched from Apple Aperture to Adobe Bridge
You may have noticed during my most recent tutorials and in my new Photoshop training, I have been using Bridge instead of my old standby, Aperture. Many of you have asked why I made the switch. Well, here are the top 11 reasons I switched from Apple Aperture to Adobe Bridge along with a video to explain it all.
- 1. Workflow: Aperture is an island.
- 2. Backup: Confusing and untrustworthy backup solution.
- 3. Other Apps: I use photoshop for everything.
- 4. Version Control: Aperture saves too many versions when going back and forth to Photoshop.
- 5. Organization: My old way of organizing (by folders) made more sense to me.
- 6. Cluttered: Too easy to get Filled up with old projects.
- 7. Performance: Slow to launch and hangs often
- 8. Cost: Bridge is free with Photoshop. Aperture is $199
- 9. Batch Processing: Bridge allows me to use Actions from Photoshop when preforming batch processing.
- 10. Versitility. Bridge works with more than just photos.
- 11. Color Correction: CURVES!!!
