No you don't NEED it, but you may well find that you'll wonder how you did without it if you start using it.
For me the biggest advantage of Lightroom (and Aperture) over Photoshop is the fact that I don't ever have to create a single TIFF file for any edited photo and I can create multiple different versions of the same photo and I can do all of that without taking up any more disc space than the original RAW file uses.
Lightroom isn't just about RAW processing though as it organises your library of photos (personally I still think Aperture's Library functions are still way better than Lightroom) making it easy to find and group your photos. It also can greatly speed up your processing by being able to either batch process of copy just one of several adjustments from one photo to any number that you choose. This is a big time saver.
The best thing you can do though is to download the trial version and give it a try for yourself
Ooh I have a new
