Buenas Jordi

LR4 is pretty damn good, as far as I can see, and after very limited use appears superior to Aperture in several ways.

Better RAW conversion - noticeably better skin tones. I haven't pixel peeped yet but detail is reckoned to be better too
Automatic lens correction for vignette and distortion
Clarity slider and more comprehensive presets - these appear so powerful that I am not sure you need Color Efex Pro with Lightroom
Better integration with Nik plug-ins which now open full size
Arguably more intuitive in terms of what does what, the way you can slide the histogram is terrific; but harder to manoeuvre around as it does more
Better looking interface
Really like the history tool

I have a month to decide what I will do but it is a terrific tool, and with the educational discount the one I will recommend to my students. Lightroom appears to do pretty much everything I want and is a friendly tool too. I would not be choosing Aperture afresh today...

Aperture just heard that and crashed again, so am doing another database repair. Apple's mantra was once that the software worked.
