    Photographers - Aperture vs. Lightroom

    I'm curious which program photographers are choosing to use. I know a lot of people have photography as a hobby, but might not consider themselves photographers, but that is not of importance. I am just curious if you use lightroom, aperture or some other software and why you picked that software.

    I would appreciate any comments!

    I have both lightroom and aperture, after using both of them I thought lightroom better accommodated my professional needs. The integration with photoshop is great. I still use aperture for my personal photos, I like "Faces" and "Places" for organizing photos of me and my friends, and different places I have been.

    Lightroom is better in my opinion, but only for pro users. If you want using it for homegrown photo creations - aperture is faster and more acurate. :)

    Lightroom for sure, I find it really intuitive and user-friendly (and fast) and I get some pretty great results - although I do tend to finish off any "fine" tweaking in PS.

    To be honest, right now I only have Lightroom... so I may be biased. But I'm thoroughly happy with it. It's not overly complicated, I love being able to save multiple versions within the program (no more having to clutter my harddrive with 30 versions of the same photo), etc But I've never used Aperture so who knows.

    I will say that I frequently forget to even open Lightroom, though. After so many years of PS I still seem to default back to it.

    Lightroom all the way. And the VSCO plugin pack is a big staple for me.

    Maybe I'm misunderstanding you, but this is pretty much what Lightroom is best at. You can use the "Sync" feature to apply the same treatment to a number of images at once. And you could also just create a preset to apply the same adjustments every time.

    Lightroom for sure! Also a crossplatform suite, so if you want to open your collection on a pc or mac: that doesnt matterr
