You're also welcome to download our free Lightroom Quick Start eBooks and explore our other FAQ resources.
  • The November 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. Lightroom Classic includes the ability to export the same photos as multiple sizes/formats in a single export, content aware fill for panorama edges and more. It does require a catalog format upgrade and there are updated system requirements, so you may want to wait a few days before upgrading.
    Lightroom (cloud-based service) has export options (such as TIFF format, renaming and color space), custom sort order on the desktop, copy/paste to multiple photos on iOS and more.
    The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes.

Interesting results that I, honestly, wasn't expecting. As of this Post:

Apple Aperture: 62.4%
Adobe Lightroom: 37.6%
Total votes: 378'

By the way, I voted Lightroom. Oh, and I would love to see two other polls:

  • Aperture 1.5 versus Lightroom 1.3.1
  • Aperture 2.' versus Lightroom 2.' (when it appears)

As of February 24, 2''8 at 23'6 EST, the results are:

Apple Aperture: 64.3%
Adobe Lightroom: 35.7%
Total votes: 9'''

Hm... Several days ago, the results were:

Apple Aperture: 62.4%
Adobe Lightroom: 37.6%
Total votes: 378'

While possible, it seems a little more than strange to me that the number of people that have voted has more than doubled, and yet the percentages have almost stayed rock solid. What are the odds that the percentages wouldn't really budge like that?

Well I think that it's not surprising with a direct link from the Apple welcome page.

The result is really - how many Apple Users that have Apple as their home page are using Aperture?
Or could it be that there are only 6''' Aperture Users total.

ROFL Geoff!!!

Didn't someone say Apple sent out an email to all of their Aperture owners too, with a link to that poll?
