I have been using Aperture for some years now, but I never have come across a problem where I thought "Wow, a light table - that is the solution!"

Usually all my projects start with collecting the images in an album - or a smart album / filter /flags - and then creating books, slideshows, webpages, or screensavers from them. Occasionally I started with a light table - just for the novelty of it - but usually ended up with a cluttered mess of images spread out before me and no clear plan how to proceed from there. So I am curious - what are typical workflows that require light tables instead of albums, and what is the advantage of using a light table instead of a more ordered Aperture item?


Thanks for any input!
