Shayne from Edmonton, Canada is switching from Lightroom to Aperture and contacted me with the following question:
How do I get my LR DNG files into Aperture 3? I cannot seem to get my RAW file out of the DNG containers. I do not want to export from LR to jpg to import into Aperture 3.
Here’s the answer Shayne:
If a you export images using the Lightroom DNG export preset then you can import those DNGs directly into Aperture 3. The DNG contains the IPTC metadata and even the star ratings from Lightroom (but not color labels or adjustments).
UPDATE: Several of my readers inform me that Lightroom would save adjustments into DNGs if you check “automatically save XMP” into the settings, which makes DNGs portable. Thanks.
