I have been playing with a Mac Mini for about a year and recently decided to switch to the Mac full time. I am typing this on my shiny new Mac Pro that just arrived today. One of the things I need to get set up is a photo editing program. I currently have Photoshop CS2 for the PC and understand that I can get a cross platform upgrade from Adobe for cheap. I have been hearing good things about Aperture and wonder if I should give it a try. I'm not a pro, but would call myself an advanced hobbyist. I've shot about 10k pictures in the past 4-5 years on a Digital Rebel and my current 20D, almost all in RAW format. So is it worth dropping money on Aperture or should I just stick with Photoshop. What do you veteran Mac photo wizards think?
