LR is just slightly behind PS in my opinion, essentially with some of the more 'selective' editing stuff. I do occasionally bust out PS when I'm manipulating non-aviation pictures, or even aviation shots that aren't being held to editorial standards, but I've never had to go beyond LR for anything that A.net demands. Global edits don't hold you back, and the non-destructive nature of the catalog/editing process actually makes for a very A.net-suitable workflow – you can edit on multiple copies of the same image to account address rejection reasons as they come in.
