Improving one's photographic technique is much preferred over spending hours at the computer trying to fix a mediocre image. The old saying is, "You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear" and no amount of editing will turn a poor photo into a good one.
If you think that then you are deluding yourself. No amount of PP will repair a poor original.
I don't use Photoshop and have never found the need for it.

When was the last time you had dental work done? I just had one crown replaced for $1200. Not sure what it costs to have your teeth whitened, but it probably isn't pocket change. How to you explain to someone that their face is going to make a poor original, and unless they do something about it, you are not going to take their picture? You may find using Photoshop, and not having that discussion with them, is not only good for their self image, but also your own, if they are good with a right cross...
