OK, I have used Photoshop since 2003. Added NX 2 in 2006, and various other software/plugins from mostly Nik. So I'm not exactly new at this. When Apple released Aperture on the App store, I bought it at the $79 price, since it seemed a bargain to try. I used Aperture quite a bit and liked it. However, I still think NX 2 does the best job with NEF files. Recently, I read a lot about LR 4 and tried it. It seemed to do a better job with RAW conversion (almost all that I shoot) than Aperture so I decided to try to switch. However, I just cannot get used to the work flow/interface. I've purchased Victoria Brampton's and Scott Kelby's books, but the LR 4 UI does just not seem as intuitive as Aperture or as familiar as Photoshop or NX 2. I just came back from Yellowstone with 2000+ photos and was hoping to run most of them through LR 4, but after a long and frustrating day, yesterday, I'm about to give up. The latest version of Aperture seems to have improved the RAW conversion for my D7000 files and I feel a lot more comfortable using it. Long-term, I still wonder about Apple's and Nikon's commitment to their respective Apps, which is why I wanted to switch to LR 4. Maybe I should just stick with what works for me and wait until I'm forced to switch? Any thoughts/suggestions appreciated.
