Hi,

Like all things it depends on what you want to do. Lightroom is excellent for managing your images and doing the fundamental editing stuff and it is not that expensive and works for Mac. If you want to really get into post processing then Photoshop is good, very well supported and lots of tutorials and demos but a fair learning curve and expensive.

I would think about what you want to do, how much time you want to put into learning and playing with the software and then go from there. I use Lightroom for organising and first level post processing and then Photoshop for more detailed work - much of this can be done within Lightroom but if you have Photoshop it is easier within Photoshop.

Scott.
