What about Aperture?
"Apple's Aperture is so cool .. who needs Photoshop?"
So began a recent e-mail. Without getting into too much detail about how I responded to the e-mail, let me just say this:
In other words, if you like working with images in a non-destructive (forensic/government) workflow ... you won't like Aperture. Some people like it vs. Lightroom. I'm really not one of them, though I wish Adobe's products would handle metadata like Aperture.
If you want a decent look at Lightroom vs. Aperture, check out Inside Aperture.
