Hi Guys,
Firstly,
I do most of my editing in CNX2, and am now "testing the water" in photoshop elements for some other options, although I find CNX2 usually all I need, there are some occasions, only PS has the added "tricks"

At present, my browser and catalog has only been ViewNX2, I have been tempted to start with Lightroom but do not know enough about the program to make an informed decision

I'm thinking Lightroom?
Is this my best option? I understand all my edited NEFs remain as is in this program?

FWIW,
I'm upgrading from windose to iMac with 16GB ram in 2-3 weeks, (wife says, maybe 4-6 ), As I'm coming from 32bit, some new software is needed, (my old activation code for CNX2 went out with the rubbish!
Regards,
Gary

I used to have a photographic memory but never got it developed
