    Oh for sure! I think that noone who hasn't been shooting for 5 years at least should be allowed to use Photoshop.
    If anything, becoming a serious Photoshop user has improved my photography because as much as I love Photoshop, I'm there to make new things, not fix past mistakes.
    I kind of did it the other way around...
    I've been using Photoshop for about 5 years before I started photography. :P

    yeah I've been using photoshop for years and just got into photography in the last month

    My view is that lazy people will be lazy, regardless of the tools available to them. If it wasn't photoshop, they'd look for shortcuts to lighting, composition, etc.. or they just wouldn't bother at all. Photoshop/post processing is definitely an important tool and always will be until the world becomes flawlessly photogenic. Unfortunately as much as you can control light with flashes/strobes/whatever you're using, you can't move mountains and sometimes the shot you want just isn't possible without a little editing. I took a decent shot of some old cars in a field except for the powerline that ran right above them. I can't move the powerline and any angle that avoided it would be a terrible shot but I can edit it out in photoshop in a matter of seconds.

    Also, as far as editing rather than going back and redoing the shot, that's fine if it's an option, but often times, it just isn't.

    I try to get it right as much as possible the first time, but I'll do what I need to do in PP to get the results as close to as what I envisioned.I hate it when I have a complete photo fail and someone says "well you'll just fix it photoshop" To me, photoshop is about enhancing/tweaking what is in front of me, but I still have to have something to work with in the first place in order to create something successful in photoshop.

    Yeah I'm not a pro at all. But reading pro talking just make noob lose confidence on them self sometimes. After seen many backstage videos on pro photographers I don't feel as bad. One skill you need to develop is how to select the winners. Lol they come back with 300 shots to publish 5. Lol

    I keep watching and reading because I do want to get as much right in the camera.
