I would bite the bullet and get both. But if you only can get one, depends what you need. If you just need to make simple-medium edits then lightroom. If you need to do a lot of major things then I'd go with Photoshop.

Yeah, lightroom will make your life easier, but anything you can do editing wise, in lightroom, you can do in, CS5, plus a lot more.

wow thanks a lot guys, I might just have to get both. the only thing i cant figure out is if i can just buy photoshop cs5, when i look on the sight it looks like you have to buy the CS5 as package. Any one know? or should i just get them all?, I know when i had CS2 on my old computer i used some of the other programs.

Also what do you guys use each one for? I am trying to get better at photoshop at i know you guy are all way better then my self.

thanks again

I use lightroom to import all of my photos on to my computer and i do most of my edits in lightroom. I use PS very little anymore just for cloning things and if I need to use layers
