Wow. When the hear-say machine runs, it runs fast.
As an Aperture user, I am not able to test Light Room so I had always assumed that LR was faster than AP – as per most forum posts out there. I was telling myself that the AP integration into the Mac OS far out-weighted its apparent lack of speed.
Well well, here David Schloss runs this real-life test. And guess what: Aperture is faster!
