FZ18 Photos edited in IPhoto 08
Since starting to use it (upgraded from iLife06 version), I've found myself using Photoshop much less frequently. iPhoto v7 (the iPhoto component of iLife08) is now at v7.1.1. Its "Shadow" & "Highlights" tools I find to be at least as effective as CS3's "Shadow/Highlighting" tool. I also use the "Noise Reduction" slider, but it's not as effective as Noise Ninja (through CS3) on the problem photos.
Just cruisin' ...
