advice on Elements 9 vs. Lightroom
I'm asking for some basic advice/comments regarding what would YOU think would suit me best between the these 2 programs, given my primary usage, cost difference (as of today), and computer.
I plan to starting shooting raw ( Nikon d50 ), and editing mainly the basic stuff (WB, contrast, etc.), correcting color & tones, with a REAL desire to capture & work with the dynamic range.
I DO PLAN to do some HDR work also (probably with Photomatrix).
Today only, Elements 9 costs $70, and Lightroom 3 for $120.
I have some concerns about compatability with my old computer (processor = AMD Sempron 2800+ 1.6GHz with 1.5MB RAM ), running XP - although I'll quickly upgrade memory.
Thanks in advance to all responding!
