QOTD from Ally: "Which Program is the Best to Edit in??"

Allison: Good Question

Tara: I use LR4 and CS5.

Brytknee: whatever you feel comfortable and confident with. i prefer photoshop (cs5 or higher)

Amy: What is the difference between the 2?

Brian: Depends on what you want to do. Photoshop can pretty much do everything that Lightroom can do as far as editing. But not vice versa. But Lightroom's controls and interface is designed for photographers. Look to see if adobe still has a trial version of creative cloud. You can try both.

Brian: I use Lightroom to correct things like exposure, white balance, contrast, black levels, saturation, etc. I also use it to organize my photos in collections. I use photoshop for major edits to the image. Removing stray hairs or an unwanted wrinkle. Putting in a new background, compositing multiple images, etc.

Rob:  I'm a total cheapskate & use GIMP, does a great deal considering it's freeware.
