What software do you use for image processing? This would be the software you use to make adjustments to your raw images (white balance, exposure, etc).
What software do you use for image management? This would be the software you use to apply meta data like IPTC data, keywords, location, contact info as well as use to later search for images in your archives.
I use Lightroom and Photoshop (mostly Lightroom). In Lightroom I do all my image adjustments and apply all of the initial meta data. I have also been working with Aperture lately to see how it compares to Lightroom. I save all my raw files in Adobe DNG format and use MediaPro (formerly iView MediaPro) from PhaseOne for image management.
