Last week, I mentioned that I wanted to provide a resource to help people understand two of the most popular digital asset managers on the photography market. With that in mind, I’ve started a new blog called Aperture vs Lightroom. It’s just getting started, but I think I have the back-end elements in place and now I can start providing some relevant content by evaluating features in Aperture and Lightroom.
My initial idea was to do head to head comparisons. For example, compare subjects like Importing or Tethering in each article. While I may do that on occasion, it turns out that probably won’t be the best approach. There are some features in both products that may work for such comparisons, but it also leads to very long articles. Also, what would I do when it was time to review features in one product that didn’t exist in the other? Most importantly, I don’t really want to take sides. I just want to provide information that people can use to form their own opinions about these products. My needs and your needs may be completely different. I’ll try to point out instances when I see a clear benefit to one product or the other. However, I suspect some of you will be able to bring up issues I hadn’t considered.
If you have questions that you’d like me to address, or questions about features, please let me know in the comments. Both products are excellent tools, which makes the choice difficult for plenty of folks. I want to make this a useful resource, so your input is very much appreciated. Thanks!

I have a number of friends who live in Colorado who are dealing with the wildfires burning across the landscape. Some have let me know they’re alright, others haven’t been able to respond to me and I don’t know how they’re doing. During The Grid yesterday on Kelby TV, Scott mentioned that photographer Dave Black has been evacuated twice and fears he may have lost his home. Many more people are in a similar predicament with no idea how things will turn out.
Although many of us feel rather helpless, there are still ways to lend a hand. One of those ways is to make a donation to the Red Cross, Salvation Army, Goodwill, or another charity of your choosing. The people who had to evacuate their homes will need food, shelter, clothing and other basic necessities of life. Please help if you can.
