Introducing AVALANCHE​

PHOTO
MIGRATION IN A SNAP…ON A MAC​​

New Release!

Unlock your photo libraries

Free yourself from the constraints of having your photos in apps you no longer want to use, no longer own, or cannot run on your latest OS version. Let Avalanche help you transfer your managed photos from one application to another without losing any data, and while preserving all your edits. Want more ? Avalanche does not even require for those photo apps to still be able to run on your computer.

Time for a change?

Whether you want to start using a shiny new Cataloging app, or simply want to ensure that all your cataloged photos travel through time safely, Avalanche is the solution. Avalanche will analyse your existing catalogs and safely migrate all your images, complete with metadata, annotations, custom organization hierarchies (albums, stacks, keywords…) to their new home.

Built to learn new apps

Avalanche has been designed to understand the inner workings of many apps used by photographers. As we add support for more apps, we will open new migration paths for your photos. Avalanche currently supports Aperture and Lightroom as an source for photos, and Adobe Lightroom or Folders as a destination.

Even a utility app can be beautiful….

backup photo

Avalanche was designed to look great on a Mac and perform great on any Mac running MacOS Mojave(*).

(*) System requirements : Mac with macOS 10.14 and higher, 145 MB of free space, 4Gb of memory (8Gb recommended). Available in English and French for now.

Powered by AI

crop tools

Avalanche uses Machine Learning to automatically adjust the edits you made on a photo in order for it to look exactly(*) the same after migration.
Not all adjustments made to your photos require AI. Some, like the geometry adjustments (straighten, crop) are carried across very precisely. Avalanche uses AI for : White balance, Exposure and light, Color and Tint, Highlights and Shadows.

(*) we really do our best. If you are unhappy with some results, you can contribute to train our ML algoritm to fit your needs.

Fast…and safe

If you’ve tried other applications and plugins that were designed to export your photos into a new catalog, and are tired of waiting for never ending progress bars, you’ve come to the right place. Avalanche is fast, because it runs natively on the Mac and has been tuned for performance (*)

It is safe too...because it never writes into an existing Lightroom catalog, but creates a new shiny catalog ready to be merged...or not.

(*) Actually this is why the product is called Avalanche : it moves tons of material in a whoossh!. We have benchmarked Avalanche on Aperture libraries up to 100,000k photos, and it typically exports them to Lightroom in less than 1 hour.

Simple, and yet it talks to the PROs

While we worked hard to make Avalanche simple to use, it was built from the ground up with PROs in mind. Avalanche understands non destructive editing, masters, virtual copies and even PRO features such as RAW+JPEG workflows.

The case of Aperture

Starting with Mac OS Catalyna (to be released in September 2019), Aperture won’t launch anymore on your Mac.
While it’s very sad for many of us, it does not mean that migration will be impossible after that date.
Indeed, the good news is that Avalanche will still be able to open your Aperture libraries and migrate them to all destinations it supports.
