    Hello everybody.

    Let me preface that I have used iphoto since iphoto 2 and test-drove Aperture for the 30-day trial period. Both awesome programs.
    Yesterday, I installed the Lightroom 30-day trial and wow, not too shabby.

    I loved Aperture but in my case Lightroom seems to be a winner because
    A) much faster on my trusted G4 PB 1.6Ghz
    B) supports RAW for my Leica D-Lux 3.

    But I miss my loved and much-used e-mail and photocast actions that are so seamlessly integrated with Aperture and iphoto. I hate having to export first as an intermediate step with Lightroom.

    What is the easiest workflow from Lightroom to
    A) resize and e-mail with Mail.
    B) Photocast with my .mac account/iweb.

    Thank you for your input.

    To use mail, select Mail as your secondary editor. Then, choose the images you want to mail, do export, enter your jpeg quality and size values, and choose open in Mail from the after export options list.

    I doubt apple will let the competition (Adobe) get their hands on the .mac API for photocasting, though.
