Re: Aperature or Lightroom?

Aperture can share a library with iPhoto. So, if you're already using iPhoto, migrating to Aperture is pretty simple. Also, Aperture costs only $80.

As for which is "best", well, there are strong opinions on both sides, but the question simply defies a definitive answer. Both have advantages. I strongly prefer Aperture because of its very efficient and non-modal editing workflow. I shoot high-volume jobs and need to quickly edit and process hundreds, sometimes thousands of photos. For this, Aperture is superb. On the other hand, Lightroom has built-in lens correction and, apparently, better noise reduction.
