As expected, Adobe today launched version 1.0 of its Aperture Importer plugin, enabling users of Apple’s Aperture photography app to import their photo libraries into Adobe’s Lightroom.

This news follows Apple’s controversial move to kill Aperture, a widely-used photo editing and management app first released in 2005.

Lightroom for Mac users can download the free plugin here.
