  1. Help!
    Aperture 2.0 or Elements Six??????

    Nikon D80

  2. Is this the “Big Adobe News” that you spoke of in the podcast?

  3. Chuck… I have the same question… :)

    I’m looking at upgrading to a better photo editing/cataloging software package. I’d love to see a comparison of the following applications: iPhoto, Elements 6, Aperture 2.0, Adobe Lightroom, and Photoshop.

    I’m on a Mac, currently using iPhoto. I’m actually seriously considering Aperture 2.0 because its only about $100 more expensive than Elements—-and it seems to be a more feature packed application. I’m looking for an application that does a good job at photo editing and cataloging my photos. Right now, iPhoto is OK—-but I find its limited when it comes to actually editing the photos, now that I’m shooting a lot more RAW.

    Will, Nikon D40.

  4. I had been using iPhoto for all my photo organizing and photo manipulation, but recently upgraded to Aperture 2.0. After a couple weeks of using Aperture, I love all the image adjustment options that Aperture gives me and when I go back to iPhoto, it seems limited. Aperture is great for organizing your photos and doing 90% of my editing, but sometimes I want to do more. I am thinking of getting Adobe Photoshop Elements 6 for some of the tools available within photoshop (like layers and combining panaramas). I think Elements is a good option if you already have Aperture (or Lightroom) and are not going to be doing a ton of Photoshop editing to justify the full CS3 purchase.

  5. Does anybody know if Photoshop Elements supports RAW. This would be a deal breaker for me.

  6. So does that mean if Elements supports RAW – you won’t buy it?

    It does support RAW.

  7. If it supports RAW, I probably buy. In the past Elements was enough to ease my desire to buy Photoshop.

    I’m also waiting on something really exciting from Adobe this week…

  8. Scott…. What all do you use for your primary editing/cataloging application? I’m pretty sure it’s Apeture…. but what else do you use?

    I’m thinking that I am going to settle on Aperture at my main application. Then, I’m going to use apps like Bracketeer ($29), maybe PE6 ($89) for when I want to do something Aperture doesn’t.



  9. I don’t use the same app for editing and cataloging. I edit with Photoshop and I am deciding whether or not to stick with Aperture or switch to LightRoom.

  10. Thanks Scott… BTW, I really enjoyed the Video’s you did on Camera supports.

  11. I would love to see/hear from the TWIP staff on how to decide between Photoshop & Elements. I’m a Lightroom user and love it (although I saw some neat features of Aperture 2 in Boston at the Aperture 2 Tour) and I need to complement Lightroom with an editor.

  12. I’d also love to hear what the TWIP panel suggests between the above options.
    What does Aperture 2 do that Lightroom doesn’t and vice versa – and what does Aperture 2 do that Elements doesn’t (and vice versa).
    Thanks all for these excellent podcasts!!
    ps. the brief comments about explaining photography jargon are very much appreciated.
