    ... as far as I can tell what this proves is that if you don't use photoshop, all your advertising will look like it came from 1987...

    Yep... too many 6 day wonder MWACs! They have seriously lowered the scale of what is acceptable. And most of them use prints SOOC, because they can't afford photoshop, or it is "too complicated" for them to bother learning...

    So you can do selective color without photoshop... with a careful choice of subjects, and a little glitter. So?

    You could do selective color in the darkroom, too. I'm guessing it involved a sponge?

    there's no need to wonder if photoshop exists, there's plenty of evidence to support that it has existed since 1988...

    I can afford photoshop, and I know how to use it VERY well. Its not the problem. The problem is that many photographers have today don't know the basics of photography - Light. Again, I have no problem with photoshop, and in fact use it often. Nice list of equipment in your signature Charlie... very classy...

    But Gary- you're giving them too much credit. FB togs use Picassa or the now defunct Picnik.

    30, 40, 50, 60 years ago, photographers used masks, brushes, filters and another "new Photoshop tricks" on film as well, everybody should know it.
