My suggestion is to try some trials of the programs you are considering (if available) and see which format suits your workflow the best. It is a tough choice. Good luck.

Excellent advice.

I would add further: Make sure you use the software sufficiently during the trial period. At first, I didn't like LR4 because I was misunderstanding the workflow. Once I corrected my misunderstanding, I found this fit my needs best. So, don't give up on any of them until you've really worked through the logic underlying their workflow.

No trials anymore of Aperture. It is in my mind the best one out there when it comes to organizing. Editing is more or less on par with LR. I think most people that work a lot with either AP or LR will get 3rd part plugins that will enhance editing a lot.

Actually there is still a trial available for Aperture 3.1 (not the latest version). There is  a link in this knowledge base article: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS4412?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US
