Both. Lightroom for the quick stuff, Photoshop for the finer detailing if needed.

Photoshop CS3. Never used Lightroom, though I hear it's great. I have a pretty standard format of using CS3 even for the "quick stuff". Primarily, I adjust curves/levels and do any cropping from the RAW image and then "Open Copy" into CS3 for other small stuff before saving it out as a JPG.

Photoshop 90% of the time and Lightroom the other 10%.

Just to confuse the issue, if you have a Mac don't forget about Aperture :)

It all depends. I've had a DNG/Adobe Bridge/Photoshop workflow for several years but converted to a more Lightroom/Photoshop workflow with the release of Lightroom last year.

But recently I've started saving my CR2 files and converting in Digital Photo Pro then finishing in Photoshop if necessary. To a large extent my workflow depends on how important the photos are to me.

lightroom and CS3 are all I need for the vast majority of my work... though Autopano Pro helps me out when stitching panoramas together.

Photoshop 100% of the time. One of these days will will open and use my lightroom but I am having a hard time with the whole "why mess with something if it is not broke" saying. I know that lightroom can really bring things to a photo but I am still just trying to totally get cs3..

I use Photoshop/Bridge/ACR CS3 almost exclusively. I've been playing with Lightroom and Aperture, but haven't adapted to the workflow yet. Been meaning to go back and try DPP processing on previously PP'ed pictures. I don't like DPP's TIFF/PSD output options though.
