Lightroom is my primary. I use PS Elements 6 (Mac) for the rare occasions I do pixel-level editing.

Thank you to all for your thoughts and contributions...

With Lightroom being the obvious favorite, I am surprised that Canon DPP is seldom used

I used to use CS4 for everything. Then I tried Lightroom 2 and use that now.
I use it for 98% of my editing, only use CS4 for resizing and sharpening now.

iphoto for me, with DPP as support. Before switching to Mac this past spring, I used DPP as my primary, and Elements 5 as support.

Time is the factor for me. I'd rather use one tool, Aperture, versus two tools, DPP and iPhoto. DPP on the Mac (iMac and MacBook) works just fine. It's just limited as to what it can do. The DPP/iPhoto combo is very powerful, but time consuming to work across two applications. First I RAW convert and light adjust in DPP and export in jpeg. Then I import jpegs to iPhoto and do remaining edits, such as straightening, blemish removal, and any additional light adjustments. Sometimes I need to return to the RAW image and reimport to iPhoto. That takes time. I'd rather simply do everything in one application, which for me at the moment is Aperture. Aperture works pretty well, and is potentially a single photo application for me.

I doubt it. PSP is an excellent app however, one I enjoyed from when it was a shareware program and when I did desktop computing in Windows. I bought a license to PSP when it was in its infancy. It was a good program.

Photoshop and bridge for everything, I've used Photoshop since version 3. I use it everyday in my job, I've tried the others but always come back to Photoshop. I guess it's a comfort zone thing.

I use DPP for processing, Lightroom 2.5 for file management, Photoshop CS4 for more heavy duty editing (and use Photomatix for some HDR)

Lightroom 2 as storage, for keeping those raw files in order and Adobe CS3 for editing.

As being new to RAW processing, and just needing the basic editing tools...I am down to two choices:

A. Adobe Lightroom

B. Canon DPP / Adobe Elements 8


Having never used Adobe Post Processing Products, I have two questions:

Question 1 - For RAW processing and editing in Lightroom, do I need Adobe Camera Raw (ACR). Can I directly import from my CF Card into Lightroom?


Question 2 - Shooting more landscape photography, one of the main areas I desire to edit is the background sky. Sometimes they are just dull and lifeless. Will Lightroom allow me to do local edits / adjustments to the sky?

Thanks
