Okay, I'm still trying to decide between Aperture and LR4. I have downloaded the trial version of LR4 and I can see where there is a significant learning curve in order to be able to use the program and accomplish the desired results. I do think LR4 may have the edge on technical quality, and certainly commitment to the future, but I still think both are very close for my use.
I believe Aperture is going to be better for what I need a PP program to do, and certainly a more user friendly interface, but I have some concerns. I hear quite a bit about the program crashing and running slowly or getting bogged down. If this is true, that alone would be a deal killer for me, although LR4 is not particularly fast as I understand either.
I hope some of you that use Aperture will give me some feedback on your experiences with it. I am running a new iMac OS X with 8 gigs of RAM and a 1 TB hard drive along with a Lacie 2TB external hard drive. This alone, coming from a windows machine running vista has been a learning experience in itself and my brain is a little tired, LOL.
Any input would be greatly appreciated ladies and gentlemen!
