I just got my first Mac and wanted some editing program suggestions. I've used various versions PSE for the past 6 years. It is great for what I do but I was curious if any others might be better in the same price range...mainly asking about Aperature. <BR> <BR>Also, are you able to <b>edit</b> RAW in iPhoto with the new iMacs? The Apple Store folks have given me different answers.}

not sure about aperture but why not stick with photoshop?

I'm tempted to just because that's what I'm used to. I was just curious if anything else in that price range is worth checking out. This will be my first Mac so it's probably best to not be learning a different editing software AND operating system at the same time. <BR> <BR>I did just watch a video on the updates to PSE with version 8.0 (I have 5.0) and it's pretty cool! I believe you can get the new version for $70 for the Mac which is pretty cheap. <BR> <BR>Thanks Joe.

PSE as in Photoshop Elements? For the same price range there is PixelMator, <a href="http://www.pixelmator.com/" target="_blank">http://www.pixelmator.com/</a> <BR> <BR>iPhoto isnt a bad app for the price either. <BR> <BR>I have iPhoto 08 and it supports RAW format but I use Photoshop CS3 to edit my RAW files. <BR> <BR>I have never used Aperture since I have been using Photoshop almost daily for the last 9 years.

I use Aperture 3 and like it a lot. It is much more powerful than iPhoto 09. You can work in RAW with iPhoto. When you edit the RAW file a duplicate version in JPEG is saved with the changes. A3 also allows plug-ins and I use a lot of NIK Software stuff that works seamlessly with Aperture 3. I used iPhoto for 2 years but am very happy now with Aperture 3. It took a while for me to get comfortable with it. Call me with any questions man.

I use CS5 Photoshop and Lightroom 3. I really like both of them! And both support RAW.
