Aperture isÂ always â€œimprovingâ€ but never becomesÂ great. I often felt that I was fighting it to get my work done.
Lightroom is consistently good and very stable. I\’ve never felt that I was fighting it.
I haven’t tested Aperture since the very first version. That being said, I haven’t even had a desire to, because I love Lightroom. It’s fast, clean, and does exactly what I need it to do. And that’s only Lightroom 2. I haven’t even upgraded to 3 yet.
Throw in the SmugMug plugin and it’s almost perfect.
I’ve also just realized I’ve completely neglected my photography since I got my iPhone 4. I’m not sure what that means, but baseball season is right around the corner. I’m not coaching this year, so I’ll be able to take more pictures.
