Aperture Exporter

There are plenty of guides on the internet detailing how to get your images out of Aperture and into another photo manager such as Adobe Lightroom. It's a multistep and complicated process that is easy to get wrong. Aperture Exporter consolidates the process into just a few clicks and provides features not possible with any manual process.

Aperture Exporter is also a great way to back up your Aperture Libraries in a format that is not reliant on the future use of Aperture.

Exporting will always generate files for your originals without adjustments. Versions with Aperture adjustments baked-in can be generated optionally.


Making your workflow easier
Aperture Exporter was designed specifically for Aperture users who have decided to move to Lightroom. With only a few options and a click of a button, Aperture Exporter re-generates your Aperture Library as a set of folders and subfolders containing your images.

Moving to a photo management tool other than Adobe's Lighroom? Don't worry, we probably have you covered too. Capture One Pro is just one example.

    We'd love for you to give it a try and give us feedback on how well it worked (or didn't) for you. Of course we will continue to keep on top of all bug reports and add new features based on your feedback.

    Documentation is coming along nicely with more on its way.
    When you first try Aperture Exporter it will be running in demo mode which places restrictions on the number of images that are exported into each folder and the number of faces that will be tagged. To remove these restriction you must purchase a license key.
