    Has photoshop taken away the true art of photography and made it where anybody can take a pic and call it a masterpiece after doctoring it up for hours that it doesnt even look like a photograph anymore.

    Define the true art of photography!

    Most of what Photoshop is, is just the digital equivelent of darkroom techniques that have been used for over 100 years in photography.

    There is not much you can do in Photoshop, that you could not do in a dark room if you know what you are doing in there.

    Hi

    This is really a question of personal preference, style and workflow. My own preference is never to use Photoshop other than for creating post shoot contact sheets for client. I make all of my image adjustments as RAW files in Capture One and then process them into JPEG and TIFF. This doesn't stop me from having massive admiration of the photographic style of others who use Photoshop creatively to enhance their images. For me it's just a question of a faster workflow.
