I just bought a “real” camera for personal and professional use, and realized I needed a good photo organization and editing tool (beyond iPhoto). I purchased PSE12 with the camera, as I’m somewhat familiar with it and it was a bundle deal, but have since been reading up on options and realizing that I’d rather have the great organization capabilities of Aperture or Lightroom. I won’t need the heavy-duty editing tools of full-size Photoshop.
On further reading about options, Aperture sounds really appealing. But then I came to this site and found out it’s no longer being supported in favor of the forthcoming Photos app.
SO – should I go ahead and get Aperture, then wait to possibly migrate to Photos in 1.5-2 years? Or should I just start off with Lightroom?
(Have not opened the PSE box, so I can still return it!)
Thanks for the help!
