Default What does everyone use to work on your pictures?

My friend recommended to me Photoshop Lightroom 2 and Photoshop CS4.

Right now I have Photoshop CS2 and the software that came with my Nikon.

Default CS3 i feel has all we need. But i think its only got the the b/w tool over CS2.

at least...as far as i use the app. Im sure we only use about 15% of the whole application anyway.

CS4 has the stretching tool....which might help for crappy lens correction.

Default Aperture 2 and CS3 with ACR but I'm learning that none of these handle Nikon NEFs as well as...

Nikon's own NX2 software. I even tried Lightroom 2 and Nikon NEFs still don't quite go through the same as they do on NX2.

This is disappointing because NX2 has no organizational or cataloging abilities whatsoever. Aperture and Lightroom do (although I prefer Aperture's interface) yet neither handle Nikon raw images properly.

I've found that NX2 is by far the best and only piece of software that import Nikon raw images properly while retaining all the camera's raw profiles and settings during the transfer. I'm guessing this has everything to do with both Apple and Adobe's lack of access to Nikon's proprietary raw image algorithms.

Default I forgot to mention that it may just be my camera model....

since it's one of Nikon's newer models, I'm thinking that perhaps neither Adobe nor Apple have quite ironed-out the camera raw profiles for it yet. With models that have been out for over a year, like your D80, this may not be an issue.

Find out for yourself. Download 30-day free trial version of Aperture 2 and Lightroom 2, then set your camera to record images in both raw and jpeg and see if the import results in huge differences between the raw and jpeg images. I have a feeling it won't be as bad in your case as it is with my camera. And if you happen to record in jpeg only then it won't be a problem at all.
