VeryKross: Really, the killer combination remains Lightroom 4 + Photoshop Elements. Use Lightroom as your organizer and [absolutely killer] RAW converter and you can then easily jump from LR to PSE with images that you want to do deeper editing with (layers, etc.). This gets you an amazingly solid workflow, stellar RAW processing, and a powerful advanced editor for a fraction of what the full Photoshop CS costs.
Agreed. Lightroom + Elements = :)
