    Doesn anyone have a tutorial on workflow for using both together? I love the editing features of Lightroom but the elegance of iPhoto when viewing or posting photos. Thanks in advance for the help!

    I don't there really is an efficient workflow to use both.

    If you want increased editing capability that LR offers, have you tried Aperture? That offers more editing and being an apple product it may have the elegance you want.

    Lightroom, iPhoto and Aperture are all designed to be asset managers as well as photo editors. That means you can't easily go from one to the other without confusing things as they all expect to be the program managing your photos.

    @maflynn I use both Lightroom3 and Aperture 3. I go between both because LR3 window flows similar to iPhoto and the adjustments are easier to navigate.

    @OP Using LR3 After editing photos, I simply export the best photos to a folder on my desktop and then import to iPhoto to use. Its a small step but the easiest way to get there.
