Photoshop for heavy stuff, Lightroom for quick and easy.

Most of my editing is done with Lightroom. If I want to do a lot more to an image, layers, masks etc. then I will also use Photoshop.

I usually use LR4, and occasionally use Photoshop CS6 for extra editing.

I used to use DPP for my conversion because I liked the colour better than ACR but Adobe has made big improvements. So now I use LR for mass edits and PS for my hobby shots. I have sharpening actions I like to use and often don't want to export from LR in PS for that.

LR4 and photoshop for tough images.  For quick and dirty ebay auctions or Craigslist, I use ACDSEE.

If I'm getting PAID, I use LR4 primarily.  If it's one of those jobs we all get where "Aunt Tilly" feels entitled to have photos of her doggie taken and I owe her because she once did something for my grandmother, well, I use whatever is available and simplest.

Heck, there are some very easy options which are free such as Paint.net and Picasa.  The best thing about Picasa is simply that once I've done the quick "auto color" or crop options, I can upload them to a web page where she can go get them herself and I never have to deal with her again.  =)

...if you can't tell, I come from a large family and they all feel entitled to my skills, experience and equipment.  It's getting old.  X(

DPP, like 70% of the final image, then Photoshop for the tweaks - even slight edits.

I've used LR before and uses it sparingly til now - but I'm learning, I can see it has quicker/straightforward controls than PS.
Tsk! Come on son..

Most of my PP work are done in LR coupled with the Nik Software bundle. I only use photoshop to PP my infrared shots.  :)

LR4 for RAW files from my 5D3 and sometimes my S100. I got it egen I picked up the body in May last year. I only looked at LR and PS and LR seemed easier to learn and more fitting to my needs. I am very happy with it 11 months later and feel I have started to get the hang of it.

LR4: organization and global editing, PS CS5 for local editing, fine-tuning for printing, onOne PPS and Nik Complete for special effects, noise, and so on.  Depends on the image; mostly I can use just LR, but on other occasions while I always start off in LR I may use any or all of the other softwares to complete the job.

Currently, I use Photoshop for everything.  I expect to get LR soon for more "everyday" use.  The reason I use Photoshop is because I've been using the program since version 4 (from LONG ago in the 90s), so it's familiar to me.

Thanks everyone for sharing so far.

I'm currently using LR4 for PP. I'm more looking for EDITING software - allows to remove background, bleending, layers etc...

I'm leanning to Elements 11 Editor and I'm not sure if this is a right choice.
