    Simple question:

    Which one do you think is better?

    Also, what has a smaller learning curve?

    Thanks for the help,

    To clarify its Aperture 2 or Photoshop Lightroom 2.

    It's a choice thing. I prefer LR myself, but others swear by AP.

    I like the LR interface better and there are far more resources available for LR in terms of plugins and information. I daresay LR is more feature-rich as well. Still, either will manage your photos and allow color and contrast level editing.
