    Hi, problably it's been ask before , but i'm a switcher and still thinking to choose the best software for organizing photos and pictures on my MB,

    which one is better ?
    aperture or iPhoto ?

    i'm not a proff photographer, just casual one,
    and i just need software to organize my photos and pictures neatly.

    most of editing i do it on Adobe CS2.

    please guide me here, thx.

    iPhoto will be best to start with - but since it comes with it then why not use it first and if you want more pro stuff then Aperture will do for you

    don't worry iPhoto is so simple you will only have to learn how to scroll - aperture is a different thing all together -

    for viewing and organizing photos , iPhoto is king - for editing them and other wonderfull stuff Aperture is a fine product

    For what you want iPhoto is the best way to go. Aperature is a different beast altogether - meant for professionals whose needs are entirely different.
    I use both, but prefer iPhotos for organization.
