So, being a heavy Lightroom user on windows and mac since it came out I really never expected to switch to Aperture. I tried Aperture 2 and even though I liked it, I didn't think it was as powerful as Lightroom especially since it lacked the brushes. Well, I tried Aperture 3 and have been using it heavily since it came out (I was using the trial version) and in the 20 (or close to it) days of heavy use I made the switch. Its just much faster than the current Lightroom and the Lightroom 3 Beta. I do think Aperture has a little more of a learning curve, its really helpful to be proficient at the keyboard shortcuts but everything else is just great. If anyone is thinking about switching give it a try. Make sure to download the new trial that has the memory leak fixed. Anyone else have a similar experience?
