These are two completely different types of software. Lightroom is specifically designed for managing and processing raw digital photos and in my mind an absolute necessity for a camera like the 7D. Photoshop is graphic and image editing software and, although it can process raw images, I dont believe it is as good as Lightroom. It is best for post editing.
Sometimes you can get a good deal on them bundled together if you shop around.
I would opt for Lightroom. An absolute must, to compliment that camera, unless he uses an Apple Mac and then I believe the software of choice is Apple Aperture I think.

Absolutely agree with you, donmac. Both must offer products for professional use. Comparing the two products is nonsense

My son has just purchased the new Canon 7D and I want to buy software so that he can import CR2 files and edit his photos. I am familiar with Adobe Photoshop (I am web designer) but know nothing about Lightroom. I have read that the upgrade to Lightroom 2 will allow you to import CR2 files? Should I get both programs or will Lightroom allow him to edit his photos (size color light) ? Would love to hear anyone's opinions that have used both programs. This is a Christmas gift - HELP!

LR is designed primarily for photographers, Photoshop for graphics. It is an obvious difference between the two products.

Just joined so thought I'd say hello and post a link to my new architectural photography website. I also have a Smugmug website which used to be my only site but will now change back to being a gallery.

Off to have a look around now.....



Your photo galleries are very nice. The photos are very nice.

Hey, im new to this

Im not sure if this is the right place to ask even, but i am so desperate!
Im a 15 year old girl and i just want a digital compact camera, with some good features like beauty shot, skin softening?
I dont know what i want really, i just want a camera that i can be vain and take nice pictures of myself and friends, and also maybe take some photos for Art?

Shelbey, please get back to me!!

I was think maybe the Nikon s3000 or Nikon s4000??? ph34r.gif

Nikon D3000 is a good choice. But it is a DLSR camera!
Body with lens Nikkor 35/1.8 G - good performance ratio
