One thing I have wondered about is just how smart is it to jump your images from one program/plug-in to another just to avoid using Photoshop. There has to be some loss of quality when you go from program to program, plug-in to plug-in instead of just doing it all in one program like Photoshop.

I don't think there's any more of a risk to that than if you opened the same lossless format image (e.g., TIFF or PSD) repeatedly in multiple sessions in just Photoshop.

What you lose is the ability to maintain nondestructive edits in adjustment layers, smart objects, etc. since even if non-Photoshop apps have nondestructive features, there isn't a common format between them that would preserve the nondestructive editability from app to app.
