I am now using the lightroom beta 4 and have been trying to learn it. I don't have a previous version. I think I have decided to buy lightroom 3 when beta plays out and maybe upgrade later. My question. Right now I have my pictures imported from my camera into iphoto then eventually move some of them to an external drive in folders. I have also photoshop elements 8 for post processing. Where does iphoto fit into this? Do most import into folders on your hard drive with labels on them and not have them in iphoto? I am not making catalogs yet in lightroom till I buy it. It is at $149 now, I wonder if that is the lowest? I understand Black Friday it sold for $99.
