    I can't help with which of the two to choose (since I've never used Acdsee Pro) but I myself have been using LightRoom and find it very easy :)

    I use ACDSee 6 Pro in combination with Adobe Elements 11 and think it's a affordable combination for the things I do.
    Especially when using the Nik Collection too...

    And the thing Adobe has in plan with his pro software (no more licenses to buy with unlimited use but something like membership fees per year) does not show any kind of user friendliness.

    But the learning curve with ACDSee is higher cause there are nearly no books or videos available.

    But the price is always interesting and much cheaper than Lightroom. There is a Special Sale these days again! ACDSee 16 was announced for release too.
    But remember to choose the Pro version 6 or upcoming 7 to get RAW support!

    The only problem I see with another system is its a slippery slope of lenses.

    I want to go full frame but the A99 is way too over priced.

    Saw a deal for a Canon 6D for 1500 but body only.

    I may just save my money.

    Lightroom is the easiest of those two to get information online. It seem to be the most widely used application for photographers both pro and amateur alike. There are mountains of tutorials, books, presets and examples to help you learn. Even on this forum, there majority use Lightroom (a guess) so advice is easy to come by.

    I'm not saying its better. I don't know, but popular does have its advantages.
