I posted this on the apple community forum and Apple took it down. So I thought I would try it here: I just downloaded the beta of Photos for Mac. Its being advertised as something way better than iphoto but short of Aperture. I am a profession microstock photographer and Aperture is a great solution for that work. I have been using it for about 4 years. So I was excited to see what the new Photos program was like. Well... its like iPhoto to me. Its not even close to Aperture. One of the main tools I use a lot is a curves adjustment and there are no curves in Photos. There is a levels adjustment but I find it clumsy and confusing and levels adjustments are not as good as curves. Also missing is edge sharpening. They have a sharpeness adjustment but its not the same. I also did not see any burn and dodge tools. My hope is that Apple adds curves and some other functions. Otherwise I will stick with Aperture. And it Aperture ever gets buggy with future OS updates I guess it will be time to change to Light Room or other software. Come on Apple....... Your loyal customers are languishing here. BTW I have provided feedback on the Aperture and Beta feedback forms. Bottom line is that, in its present form, Photos cannot be used for professional photo work.
