Apple has begun sending emails to Aperture users, promoting the upcoming Photos for OS X app. The email reminds users that Aperture will not be available following the release of the Photos app.
The email notes that Photos for OS X will launch “this spring,” and reminds Aperture users that their Aperture photo libraries can be imported for use in the new Photos app.
“You can migrate your Aperture library to Photos for OS X, including your photos, adjustments, albums, and keywords. After migrating, your Aperture library remains intact. However, Aperture and Photos do not share a unified library, so any changes made after the migration will not be shared between the apps.”
