Easily amused people is right! A lot of my friends and random peeps on the internet think I'm really good when I'm just using the most basic tools. One day if I take a Photoshop class, people will see the difference!
Photoshop is a great program, learned it back in high school, had tons-o-fun. I'd say you'd be on the dark side of the Photoshop, not that that's a bad side to be on as the dark side has cookies. good luck with future restorations, just remember there's easily amused people in the world :P
