    I have photoshop cs3, and have just been messing around with it lately attempting to learn what the heck I'm doing. I've noticed a few of you mention something called lightroom. What is that? What do you prefer to use for photo editing?

    Lightroom is also an Adobe product. It's a post processing program and catalog system all rolled into one. While not as powerful as photoshop for image manipulation, it does 95% of what most pros need to edit and enhance their photos. It also ties nicely into PS for additional editing. I use LR for the vast majority of my work and use PS for additional editing when necessary.

    LR is so much easier to crop, why would you use PS?

    But really, listen to these guys and check out lightroom, or aperture if you're on a mac. It will speed up your workflow bigtime.
