    I know most people use LightRoom, but I'm sure some people liked Aperture.

    I've got a D300, but why can't you use RAWs?

    I thought ap was going to die.. if they are going to keep supporting it I might give lightroom the flick :noes:

    Apertures interface/shortcuts/loupe > LR * 11ty

    but yes, the adjustments and speed is where it has been lacking.

    Glad to see an update. I would hate to see this die and be forced to use lightroom.

    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 :rofl:,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.
