Since there is a long thread relating to cats I don't think this is too out of line.
I'm curious what everybody is using to manage their digital images. Workflow, programs, add-ins, storage, etc.
I recently migrated to a Mac and just purchased Aperture 2. So far, I'm pretty happy with it. I'm letting Aperture manage all my image files and right now I am just backing up with Time Machine, but may consider making "vault backups" to an external disk (the vault is an Aperture specific feature).
While Photoshop is the gold standard and comes with very powerful tools. I really like the slimmed down Aperture. I like how it manages versions and never touches my master originals. Photoshop was almost too overwhelming that I spent more time worrying about file management than shooting images. I think Aperture will change and also get me back to shooting in RAW full time now.
