Another vote for LR here. I only use photoshop for a couple of things these days. Soft proofing (it's really really annoying that we STILL cant' do this in LR) and panorama stitching. That's about the only reason I've opened PS in the last several months.

If you are willing to pay the price differential, the choice is obvious, to me at least...

NOTE: It's been pointed out that the reason for the big difference in speed in "gang" adjustments is because Aperture isn't just re-rendering previews but re-rendering the masters (or versions of the masters). So now the question becomes, does Lightroom offer a faster workflow or are you being "cheated" by not adjusting the RAW image in real time?
note that the information is not entirely clear about the processing speed. if you are getting accurate info from adjusting the previews, then it is better. but at some point, the machine is going to have to render the master, and that presumably is going to take time...

I did a brief trial of each and liked the feel of Lightroom much more. Never looked back.

You should be able to run both at the same time.

Another very happy Lightroom user here. I don't know what I'd do without it - the only things I do in Photoshop these days are cleaning up scans of really old photos, and creative stuff for web site headers etc. Even have my Nik filters available in LR.

LR here too. Been using it since LR1 beta. I tried Aperture a couple times, once for the first release and again on the most recent. I found it slow which seems to be proven in the above mentioned comparisons. LR also handled a multi-display setup much better. Not sure if Aperture is doing better now or not as my last use was on a MBP.

The price differential is huge now though. $300 vs $80. Wow. I wonder how Adobe will respond?

Well if they are like Apple you could expect maybe a 10% price drop.

I think it's smart to get the trial of each, and try them side by side.. And make the decision yourself... I haven't regretted the switch to LR and I use LR3 on a daily basis as a professional photographer.

I also found a lot more ppl out there making filters and such for LR so that is really handy! (check out lightroomkillertips.com)
hey dear, I used Aperture 3 about one week but I couldn't use it very well, I felt it is difficult
so I use the lightroom 3 and i saw some features are great such as effect (to make black on the edges) and control the colors. well, I did not learn every thing about lightroom even though has another features. at last there are some people using aperture and they are praise it


thank you dear

I still use Lightroom 3 and I haven't used CS5 I use CS4
so, I asked you about those apps because I am not certain which one is better
