I am just wondering: I have all of my photos in the iPhoto library, but I just (finally) installed my copy of Adobe Lightroom. I am going to import all of my photos to Lightroom and I am wondering if there is any need to keep iPhoto on my computer.

Any Mac users out there who can offer any advice on how you manage your photos?

You don't need to keep iPhoto (or its library, which will take up much more space than just the application itself) regardless of whether or not you have Lightroom.

I just use Finder. iPhoto mucks things up too much in its "database" and I don't approve of how Aperture does basically the same thing. Finder and Photoshop work well for me.

Sounds good then! So Aperture attempts to "organize" things like iPhoto does? So it's maybe a good thing that I went with Lightroom then. I am not sure what it attempts to do with the photos as far as organization is concerned.

Thanks!
