i can't do all the fancy stuff with photoshop that my graphically advanced husband can. i'm an iphoto girl at heart and find that everything i need to modify pictures to my liking can be found right there.
(i love 'antique' mode.)
(and blurred edges with sunlight...priceless.)
(and of course, the ol' 'black and white' mode...perfect for cracks in the sidewalk.)
(and the 'crop' and 'boost' modes are great when you really want to punch up color. still not sure who that ball belongs to...)
but sometimes... straight out of the camera is just as good as anything.
