    Wow. I was getting sick of the Canon software on my Mac... it was slow and kind of hard to use. Tonight I bought Lightroom 2 and WOW... now I know what it feels like to have a powerful PP tool.

    I can't wait to play some more!

    What do you guys use for PP?

    The provided software from camera manufacturer, and a very cheap version of Photoshop CS4.

    I couldn't stand LR when I used it. Seems to. I dunno.

    I use Photo Mechanic for my front end organization and selection, Capture One for my raw processing and Lightroom for dodging and burning, with occasional Photoshop for more intense editing.

    I'm currently using Photoshop Elements while I save up the cash for CS4. I currently have CS2, but I'm not able to use it with my XSI and there is no "addin" available on the abode site for my XSI and CS2

    I have but am not smart enough to use Photoshop CS3 Extended and Lightroom 2.1. I also have Photomatix Pro, Portrait Professional, Photo Frame Show and Gimp 2.

    Photomatix Pro is great for HDR, although I haven't made an HDR yet that I like.
