5.0 out of 5 stars Just wonderful - HUGE improvement over iPhoto. July 31, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
I decided on this over Aperture due to concerns with Apple dragging their feet on their latest update. When I ask myself, which photo database system is more likely to still be supported 20 years from now, my gut tells me: Adobe.

I just love the way Aperture works. It doesn't hog a bunch of storage and memory. With all the keyboard shortcuts and presets, basic photo editing is about as quick and efficient as it could possibly be. I feel like I have plenty of control with file management.

Image quality is of course a major consideration. Coming from iPhoto and a few other basic programs, the difference in exposure compensation and highlight and shadow recovery is enormous. I don't mind losing old changes as I migrate all my images from iPhoto - Lightroom processing looks so much better, I'd rather go ahead and redo the important stuff.

Great as it is with RAW files, Lightroom also seems to have a very potent algorithm for adjusting JPEGs. That is a big bonus for me - it lets me do the bulk of my art cataloging shots in JPEG again.

Non-photo-savvy friends of mine were dismissing this program as an unnecessary expense. At least for this photo enthusiast, they couldn't have been more wrong. I wish I'd made this move years ago - there is certainly no way I could ever go back.

Use Lightroom 4 all the time. Took a lot of on line tutorials to learn as it is different from Photoshop. In my opinion it is the best program to make your photos the best they can be. Fun to use. Like the way Amazon lets you download this program immediately and they keep a copy for you to download later if needed.

As I started to get more serious about photography, I wanted to find something a little more sophisticated than iPhoto for organizing and processing my digital photos. Because I started using iPhoto, I was naturally drawn to Aperture, which allows for a relatively seamless transition. As I read more about photography, I kept hearing about Lightroom, so I decided on a whim to give it a try (30 days free trial). By the end of the 30 days, I was hooked and had stopped using Aperture completely. Don't get me wrong, Aperture is nice and has a few features which I like better (for example, I do miss face recognition as a way to organize and locate photos). In terms of organizing, I think both programs do a great job. In all, however, I felt Lightroom's processing tools are much more intuitive and simpler to use, even if there is somewhat of a learning curve. For example, the ability to "drag" the histogram makes processing photos that are over / underexposed a snap.

As I said above, both are good programs, but in the end, I found that I like Lightroom better than Aperture. In addition, I was sold because I felt like Adobe would continue to support LR, whereas I worry about Apple's emphasis on mobile devices and whether it would continue to give programs like Aperture the attention they deserve.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wanted to like Lightroom, went back to Aperture September 24, 2012
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
I have been using Aperture since version 1, but lately I have been a little frustrated with Apple not dedicating more resources/effort into refreshing their pro apps. Adobe Lightroom has some features that are appealing to me, including lens correction, better publishing/export & significantly better noise reduction sliders. I felt at the time it was the best option moving forward.

So I purchased Lightroom for Mac and dedicated the whole weekend to learning the software. The first issue (which I knew going into it) was getting all my Aperture photos into Lightroom. Files edited in Aperture cannot be imported into Lightroom w/ corrections (unless exported as jpegs). This is not a knock on LR as much as it is a simple incompatibility with the software. I overcame this and moved on.

Immediately I noticed the organization and overall flow of LR was significantly different than Aperture. Simple things like drag and drop to the desktop were not there. Smart folders (or smart collections) were extremely limited. The library view was very clunky and space was wasted w/ oversized photo icons. Jumping in and out of these modules just seemed unnatural. I am sure with time many of these things would become second nature, but overall the library organization was just unbelievably bad.

The Develop module has Aperture beat on many items, and with powerful photoshop features built in how could it not? But then simple things like previewing different B&W settings before you apply were not there (as they are in Aperture). A simple but very effective first line edit - pro auto enhance in Aperture, does not exist in LR. Aperture also beats LR in brushes. Editing photos just seemed so much easier in Aperture.

4.0 out of 5 stars Moved from iPhoto to Aperture to Lightroom October 24, 2012
By Mr C
Platform for Display:Mac Download|Verified Purchase
Used to use iPhoto but found its processing capabilities very limited. Aperture had enough functionality but was really slow (unusable) on a relatively new Macbook Pro. Lightroom is a bit too advanced for me, but significantly faster. Now that I have gotten used to it I find it really useful. However it does not integrate well (or I have not figured out how) with the Apple eco-system. Like syncing with Photo stream or viewing on Apple TV or syncing with my phone... That is the key downside.
