Hey everyone! So here's the deal: I am pretty much decided on a 27" iMac i5, and am just trying to figure out which route I should go as far as photo-editing. I have just gotten into DSLR photography about two years ago, and shoot primarily in RAW, but I have not had a reliable computer so any editing and post-processing has been done on my friend's Mac Pro using PSE 8. I am just trying to figure out what type of program(s) I should include with my iMac purchase for the best of both worlds in workflow and editing and artistic capabilitites. These are the choices I have: (I will be taking advantage of my educators discount wherever possible, and I am in Canada if that helps....) -Aperture 3 for $199 pre-installed -Photoshop Elements 8 for $79.99 -Lightroom 3 for $89 -CS5 Design Standard for $219.95 -CS5 Photoshop Extended for $189.95 I want to be able to do RAW editing, as well as some more creative-type editing and artistic stuff. What should I go with, and what should my workflow be? I would also like to use iPhoto for photo management, at least for snapshot-type stuff. Thanks in advance!!
