    lightroom for batch processing! now i really just shoot in RAW, it's pretty convenient.

    but im sure that aperture is at least as good too!

    No money to buy lightroom. so using the free DPP software that comes along wif the Canon DSLR purchase. has the usual batch processing, contrast, brightness, sharpening, NR, etc. Havent used lightroom nor CS2,3,4 so dunno what I'm missing. maybe some bros can fill us up on the differences.

    If you know someone in the education field. You could purchase CS4 Web premium for just $99. It's pretty cheap.

    No education discount for Lightroom though.
    Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst.

    I bought education LR2 for $152. So far I find it is good cos I've beed using CS3 for a while and only use those tools can be found in LR2. And LR2 double up as browser and organiser. I'll switch over to CS3 for creative processing tools like, mask, layers... etc... then switch back to LR2.

    It's always recommended to use the manufacturer's software, e.g. Nikon Capture

    CS4? Is that a new offer, because I thought it was CS3?

    To TS, I tried GIMP, DPP and CS3. The first two are good considering they are free, but I think I would pay more for CS3 for its added functions.
