99% of my work is done in Lightroom. I use photoshop only for very special photos and experiments.

For a photographer I would say that photoshop compliments Lightroom. Work gets done in Lightroom, and is then optionally pulled into Photoshop in some cases.

Personally I've been getting into video work as well, so I bit the bullet on a CC Subscription.

I'm in the same boat as Luckless, almost all of my work is done in LR4, with some work done in Photoshop.

Thanks everyone. So from what I gather, Photoshop is a good compliment to Lightroom, but most all work starts in Lightroom.

Time to go shopping!

I only have elements, and I like it. It has a good organizer and good photo editing.
So it really replaces both lightroom and photoshop.
I donīt usually edit large quantities of same photos, like sports photos, so I manage more than fine with PSE.

I use elements at work too, cause PS CS version is not really needed by anyone else than editing pros, working in the publishing industry.
Iīm a 3d designer and my editing needs are pretty big daily, but still the PSE fills all those.

Photoshop vs Photoshop Elements

This isn't entirely accurate. Lightroom is PIEWare, or, Parametric Image Editing Software. Unlike Bridge, which allows you to view files, Lightroom allows you to catalog, rate, keyword, adjust, etc. Having a couple hundred images, you may be able to keep up with them and where you put them. Having a few thousand and it gets increasingly difficult to the point of impossible. By Keywording and placing images into Collections, it's a LOT easier to find a specific image, or even similar images. I do a large portion of editing in LR and only export to Photoshop if I want to really get into the image, though this isn't typically needed.

Peter Krogh (sp) has an excellent book and website devoted to DAM (Digital Asset Management) that I recommend every photographer look over. My workflow has increased exponentially because of DAM.

Photoshop is the better editor. You can do more to the photo.

Lightroom is the more practical program. You can do everything you need to do 99% of the time, and it's a better organizer hands down.

After owning both, LR wins.

Never used bridge, I was talking about elements organizer which allows you to catalog, rate, keyword etc. It also stacks the images so that you can keep the original, and save the adjusted jpg to the same place.

Hereīs a snap of elements ui

Bit of a threadjack, but for the people who have lightroom, how does the licensing work per computer? Is it basically one of those install once and it's stuck type programs? Reason I ask is I hate to spend 100 bucks on a program, install it then end up having my computer crash and I'm pretty much SOL for installing it elsewhere.

I have installed my LR4 on 2 PC's - when we got a new one i used my code and it installed like it had before.

I didn't do anything special just used the disk and ran the install. Input my code and when it worked i wiped my old desktop and sold it
