    Has anyone used Aperture Exporter from Blue Pill software in their conversion from Aperture to Lightroom? Did it work well? Any caveats?

    Welcome to the forum. Until you posted, I had not heard of this app. Lightroom comes with a plugin that will convert Aperture libraries to import into a Lightroom Catalog.

    Have you tried it? I have read comparisons of these two options and it sounds like the Blue Pill product is better. I want the simplest solution as long as it does the job.

    I have no reason to try it. I've never used Aperture and have only use LR's plugin to import a Photos Library into LR just to see how the plugin works. All the "comparisons" that I see on the net are product hype. We've been helping Aperture users convert since before Adobe released their plugin. I see no reason to pay money for a product when there is a free solution that does the job.

    Thanks so much. I will have a look at the plug in. When you say "we have helped Aperture users convert.....", are you a consulting company offering services in this area?
