"At Adobe, we’re working on a migration tool to help you bring your photos into Adobe Photoshop Lightroom from Aperture, but if you’re eager to switch before the tool is ready, this guide can help ease your transition. We recognize that this migration may be a challenging process and offer the following resources and methodology to help get you up to speed with Lightroom and provide a road map for successfully migrating your photos.
The first challenge is that the terminology, layout, and controls of the two applications are different. It’s a good idea to start processing photos in Lightroom and become familiar with it before you migrate your photos from Aperture. You can do so by taking some new photos, importing them into Lightroom, and then using Lightroom.
Here are some resources to get you started with Lightroom:
- The best way to get Lightroom is as a part of the Creative Cloud Photography plan.
- If you would like to try Lightroom, a free 30 day trial is also available.
- Learn the basics of Lightroom with this tutorial: How to manage your digital photos
We are providing a workaround solution for the second challenge of switching: Aperture and Lightroom use different image-processing engines, which means that Lightroom cannot read adjustments made in Aperture. For any photos you have edited in Aperture, you should transfer the original plus a .tiff file with adjustments applied. Then, in Lightroom, you can organize the original and the .tiff file so that they appear alongside each other.
In addition, Lightroom cannot read Aperture color labels, flags, or custom metadata fields. So, before you export your originals, use Smart Albums or the search filter to find images by those attributes, and apply corresponding keywords (for example, Color-red, Flagged, or Meta-ModelRelease-Yes).The steps that follow provide a generalized method for migrating your photos from Aperture to Lightroom. Please keep in mind that this guide outlines a basic workflow: you may need to tailor the steps to fit your particular setup."

The new Canon initiative gives users access to inkjet print media that satisfies standards for the popular Canon A3+/13”-wide PIXMA PRO printer lineup: the PIXMA PRO-1, PIXMA PRO-10 and PIXMA PRO-100. Print media that meets these criteria will display the PIXMA PRO Partner mark.
Users will be able to purchase paper carrying the PIXMA PRO Partner mark with peace of mind, knowing that the product has been tested for use with the PIXMA PRO printer series. Accordingly, users will have an enhanced printing experience as they will not only be able to use Genuine Canon Paper, but also select from a variety of art and specialty print media according to individual print needs. To ensure optimal print results, the ICC profiles for paper offered through this initiative by other companies can be obtained on paper manufacturer and seller websites and elsewhere.
By combining Genuine Canon Paper along with paper from other companies that satisfies Canon standards, Canon provides users with an extensive selection of specialty print media to meet the diverse print needs of professional and advanced-amateur users.

"Now that I’ve seen the insides I’m very optimistic that this lens will be less likely to deteriorate optically over time, and will be more easily corrected when it does. We won’t know for sure until we’ve got a year’s experience with it, of course, but from a design and assembly standpoint it looks really, really good.
I know I’m beginning to sound like a Fanboy, especially considering I hardly ever mount a wide-angle zoom on my camera. But I guess the corny old line from the Most Interesting Man in the World works. 'I don’t often shoot Canon wide angle zooms, but when I do, I prefer the 16-35 f/4 IS.'"
Users have more control over their workflow with access to editing functions such as invert, mirror, and black and white point adjustments. Custom presets help users control the scanner and increase control over printer settings.
SmartWorks V3.5 Plus gives users the ability to scan and print multi-page PDF documents on the fly. This allows users to take multiple drawings or documents, scan them in using the M40 scanner and either save or print the set as one multi-page document. In addition to this added feature, users can now perform color corrections and automatically crop the borders on their files using the preview mode and large touch-screen monitor, to ensure that they will be obtaining the desired output. The Plus version also supports PDF/archiving functionality.
PosterArtist with a new low MSRP of $395, includes essential features customers need to easily create posters, signs and banners. To make sharing simple PosterArtist now offers the ability to save posters including custom images, clipart, and fonts, to a new file format. This complete file can be exported directly from PosterArtist to Canon's Direct Print & Share cloud portal software for sharing between users.
In addition, there are a host of independent software vendors that have made software available for use with these new imagePROGRAF printers. Cloud4MPS allows users to web enable compatible imagePROGRAF printers for Remote Device management, Status & Usage Readings, Consumable Management and more. Other companies include SA International, Technesis, Sepialine, EFI, Shiraz, Caldera, ColorGate, DEV Studio, SCP and PosterJET.
These new imagePROGRAF models are scheduled to be available on July 31, 2014 at manufacturer's suggested retail prices of $4,995 (iPF785), $4,495 (iPF780), $3,195 (iPF685), $2,495 (iPF680), $8,995 (iPF785 MFP M40), $8,495 (iPF780 MFP M40 and $395, for PosterArtist. And ($595) SmartWorks MFP Plus software.

"We’ve all heard the line: 'Oh, I must get an agent.' But what do you actually need an agent for? The person representing you is not, according to respected manager Mark George, someone who’s going to be working the phone getting you bookings. The role is much wider and far-reaching, as CPN Editor David Corfield discovers...
Note the noun: ‘manager’. Mark George is not an agent. He hates the word, and shuts me up in a puff of cigar smoke as I sit down and sip my coffee. 'An agent to me sounds like someone who just gets you bookings, like a rep. I hate that term. I might represent somebody in a managerial way but there is a difference. I look after people who are too focused on what they do to understand that the world around them needs looking at as well. And that’s where I come in.'"
