Giving Photoshop to people who don't understand the basics of the craft and what's considered good taste in a photograph I.M.O. is like giving an electronic calculator to a person who doesn't know what addition, subtraction , multiplication and division is, and instead of improving their work they make it worse, because the skills and knowledge required to be proficient in Photoshop are as stringent as that of darkroom work.
So take crayons away from kids because they don't know how to draw?
