    For those of you that have use both of these suites, which one do you rate hire and why. Please don't use price as a comparison or reason. I'm specifically interested in the software and which is better and why.

    What does one have that other doesn't and what will one do that the other won't?

    Thanks,

    RW

    I don't use very much Lightroom (though I have it) and work within Photoshop CS5 extended. I also own OnOne's suite previous to the latest version. It is a very good package and it is a matter of learning how to use it and leverage it. I have also used a couple of the Nik offerings and what I find is that there is an overlap but also some that are not the same at all. In this that means one is not a replacement for the other. At the latest price of Nik (now 149) I would suggest you either get both or see if trials are offered. I will be probably getting the Nik software for two of their apps within the suite.

    I thought Nik Software was a bargain when I paid $425.

    I know you are not interested in price... and have no idea about onOne. I am a Nik Software user... convinced to go this way by several pro photographers, and photo enthusiasts.

    From what I can tell... Nik is the standard to beat.

    I have both, and use them extensively. onOne's Perfect Layers and Perfect Portrait get heavy usage, along with almost all of Nik's suite in my workflow. They're both a bargain at $149 each.

    How did I know you'd have links to offer information?:D

    They were actually quite helpful and to everyone else who replied with opinions, thank you. I will in fact buy the Nik package as the price can't be beat and the consensus seems to be that some if not most of the tools are superior.
