I know most people use LightRoom, but I'm sure some people liked Aperture.
Yea i was hoping this would be out soon. as my D300 was getting ronery not being able to use RAWs.
I've got a D300, but why can't you use RAWs?
I'll check it out.
before the 10.5.2 patch and Aperture 2.0, D300s and D3s and lots of new cameras had no RAW support unless u used Adobe.
I thought ap was going to die.. if they are going to keep supporting it I might give lightroom the flick
Apertures interface/shortcuts/loupe > LR * 11ty
uh no. no global presets ftl
lift and stamp
but yes, the adjustments and speed is where it has been lacking.
Lightroom is definitely king of the workflow. but hey, aperture makes books
yeah, you are having enough book problems at the moment... you should give it a go
I really do miss it's interface. oh well, will try this later in the week.
Glad to see an update. I would hate to see this die and be forced to use lightroom.
ACR > lightroom + aperture.
what is acr?
Adobe Camera Raw
beat me too it.
Exact same image engine and functionality as lightroom, but faster and without all of the extra 'pretty' bullshit.
Its also really for working one photo at a time, and doesn't have an extra functionality, like split toning.
so no, its not better than Lightroom ,its lightroom's newborn baby, same blood, bu really doesn't do anything
for my needs it is. Guess I should have specified.
For a fine art photographer or someone whos shooting for fun and working on individual images to create perfect prints, it's better.
I can see how lightroom would > ACR if you frequently work with batches or apply global presets though.
So yeah, fair enough.
Oh, and it sure does have split toning.
The ONLY additional functionality that lightroom has is in the organization/bulk editing department. The photo editing engines are identical.
ACR can work more than one photo at a time, be open more than once at a time and be hosted by Bridge or PS. ACR is dope if you take the time to learn it and want something that is not a RAM hog. I don't deny the power of LR or AP but because it does not have a fancy GUI does not mean it sucks. IMO Bridge > ACR > PS is the most efficient workflow. To each their own.
