macOS 10.15 "Catalina"

As of macOS 10.15 "Catalina", Apple has discontinued support for Aperture® and iPhoto®. macOS 10.14 "Mojave" and earlier can still run both Aperture® and iPhoto®, but if you upgrade you will lose access to previous photo book projects made in both of those programs. We suggest you at least back up all of your photo book projects as PDF's as described below if you want to ensure you have access to the photo book in the future if you want to update to macOS 10.15 "Catalina"
