    1. PS CS2 and CS3 (my main app is CS3)
    2. Adobe Lightroom (recently upgraded to v.2.0 from 1.4)
    3. Elements 5 and 6
    4. Picasa
    5. Nikon Capture NX 1.01 and 2.0
    6. Nikon View NX to cull the RAW files initially
    7. MSPaint (yeah, I tried it... lol)
    8. Bible Pro
    9.DxO Optics Pro

    There are a few others that I played with. I decided on CS3 and a lot of people are working with LR 2.0 for speed reasons. My LR skills are freaking weak and I am a lot faster in CS3 to date.

    I'm sure CS4 will fall in there at a later time, I;m just not even at the stage where I can exploit a lot of what CS3 has to it's fullest... yet.

    Edit: I forgot to add DX0 and Bibble Pro and DxO Optics Pro... lol

    PS. It's the only way to go unless you're doing high-throughput editing. And even then I think batch editing can have an advantage in some cases over "workflow" software.

    I use CS2 with the Noise Ninja plugin. I have Photomatix for HDRs, but don't do those much.

    Yeah, I have lightroom. How does everyone edit a big image? The place I print with tells me not to resize my pics if I want them printed because they lose their MB's. But when I edit a big image its so big I can't tell what I am going.
