adobe says it would take about 5 years and 5 more versions of LR to include the entire list....sorry...can't wait that long...
i switched to aperture for the moment...
because NOW it gives me:
dual monitor support
on par conversions with LR (aperture 1.5 was way off)
moire slider (that works well and simple)
all these features are here today and work!
what i am missing:
presets/looks (there is a workaround, but come on...)
snapshots (there is a workaround for this as well, but again...)
why i am switching: the features i need most are in aperture TODAY...no guessing when they might come....conversions are great...which is really the most important thing....it seems like aperture needs some fixes at this point, LR a whole list of features, by the end of the year aperture might have what i am asking for, LR definitely won't (according to them i might have to wait 5 years)...apple has proven to provide industry leading pro-apps (video, music) and with this release showed that they are serious about aperture as well....if anyone can take on adobe on that level, it is apple
also: the integration with apple os and all ilife/iapps is just amazing and this is only the beginning....adobe will never have this....
both apps are great, do yourself a favor and check them both out.....
Two questions :
1/ Do you feel skin tones on A2 are more real than LR's ?
2/ Isn't A2 still much slower than LR ? (on a PPC G5 2x2,5 Ghz - 3 Gb RAM, I experimented real slowness).
