    I was in on the beta for Lightroom and at the time (about a year ago) preferred it to Aperture. Now Lightroom is complete and Aperture has been updated.

    The question is... which one do you prefer and why? :noes:

    Lightroom doesnt recognize matched pairs when you shoot in RAW + JPEG mode. Additionally, ANY changes you make in Lightroom need to be exported to be viewed outside of Lightroom (it has no "save changes to original" feature). It's annoying exporting crops and minute changes.

    Dear inkblot

    Please do your homework before anwering questions.

    Thanks

    The Management

    You can have auto "save" enable (auto update xml data), arbitrarily "save" it at any point (metadata - xml - update), or when exporting.

    LR will recognize RAW and jpeg, just not int he same folder. Who wants to deal with both anyways, they require seperate proccessing, and trying to figure out which is which via thumbnail is a waste of time.

    So you're stating that Lightroom can "save" any edit made within the program, and these edits will be made to the image file, regardless of file type (RAW, JGP, etc) and viewable outside of Lightroom?

    Also, I use RAW + JPG to generate a RAW for processing as I see fit and a small jpeg for use on the web or medium quality BW images for a coworker, etc. The annoyance is that Lightroom will not import these files into the library from the camera. It's failry easy to import to Lightroom and the sort by file type.

    yes it updates the xml as you go if you select it to, or have it write the changes manually without exporting
     

  9. Every time I plug in a CF card lightroom pops up and wants to import the files to library from the card. I am not that advanced with LR so I usually just close lightroom when It trys to open up.
