Lend Me Your Eye

How much photo manipulation is too much? When I bought Adobe InDesign last year to produce Folded Word's books, it came with Photoshop. I'd always dreamed of having a "real" version of Photoshop because I kept seeing recipes for doing cool things to digital photos--recipes that called for features that Photoshop Elements didn't have. And yet, I ended up owning Photoshop for a whole year without once trying to use it. Until today. And now I'm torn.
