If you are an Apple Mac user, Apple and Adobe offer two powerful all-in-one tools for editing and managing your photographs. Apple Aperture (hereafter “Aperture”) and Adobe Photoshop® Lightroom® (hereafter “Lightroom”) have a great deal of functionality in common. All of the basic and most of the most advanced editing features both programs offer are surprisingly comparable. That makes choosing one to use for your post processing and photo management difficult. There are some unique features in each application that differentiate them.
