Tome gun: As a newbie, I have a question. I have Aperture, Lightroom 4 and Elements 10. Can Elements 11 now replace them all?
I have been a System Administrator for several years and have never seen anything like this. I have wiped this system and all software is set to update automatically. This behavior is not normal. I was talking to a friend last night - another System Administrator and Apple convert - and we associate this with Honda Accords: they are supposed to be reliable and you are almost hurt when they are not.
I have an iMac that is 6+ years old and a 2011 MacBook Pro. The older iMac doesn't have Aperture and Lightroom on it, but the MacBook does. I have never seen anything like this on my Macs or even <gasp> on one of my Windows machines.
I understand, that is kind of the way I work. However, you are the first person I have heard that says a Mac user should use Aperture. Is there a reason for this? I thought Lightroom was universally considered superior. Can you tell me why you think a Mac user should use Aperture instead of Lightroom?
Aperture does seem to have less of an impact on my system and that is saying a lot considering what I have. Lightroom 4 can bring my quad-core i7 with 16GB of RAM to its knees.
So now, the question is, how to I ensure everything from Lightroom is now in Aperture if I go that route?
