The UI on both are very similar.. I used aperture for about 3 months, because I'm an apple fanboy.. I found it a little difficult to learn.. So I tried LR1 (this was 2 years ago now) and was happy that it looked the same.. Then found it a LOT easier to use than aperture..

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)

Lightroom 3 user here and loving it.

Also a quick search would have resulted in a few threads on the subject already on ehMac.

Like this one: http://www.ehmac.ca/anything-mac/873...lightroom.html

Lightroom 3 all the way for me. Very powerful and intuitive to use, plus if you have Photoshop the integration is great. I also believe it is less intensive on system resources, but I could be proven wrong on that point... just something I seem to remember having read somewhere.

Oh, and welcome to ehMac NasserRadi.

This is very true.. But I will also say, once I learned some of the more advanced features of LR3 I hardly EVER go to Photoshop (CS5) anymore

True. Photoshop has become the application for more "esoteric"/"design" based photo manipulation rather than a straight up photo editor.

Yes it is a very good price for those on a budget.

Hmmm.......I have both Aperture and Lightroom but haven't installed either for i have been putting it off until i decided which one i thought might be easier......but i like what i hear about not really needing PS once you got more familiar with LR......

Sounds as if Lightroom just won
