John Nack on a survey of 1,026 professional photographers in North America regarding their RAW processing software:
- 66.5% using the Photoshop Camera Raw plug-in
- 23.6% using Lightroom
- 5.5% using Aperture
To be fair to Aperture, it might be helpful to remove Windows
users from the equation for a moment. Even after doing so,
Lightroom’s usage among Mac-based pros is still nearly double that
of Aperture (26.6% vs. 14.3%).
What’s really interesting is that Lightroom’s use among Mac-using photographers wasn’t just higher than Aperture’s — it was higher than the number of Lightroom users on Windows. I think Mac users are more likely to try new apps.
