That is true, but I think most of us who are experienced and
reasonably skilled photographers screw up sometimes.  And there is a
place for tools that can lessen the damage somewhat, specially if it
is a snap of your late grandmother hooking a fish with a big grin on
her face. As for beating up on people who should improve on their
shooting, how many of us only work on our own photos?  I am always
being asked, "Can you fix this?" Nice to have a tool to do that
quickly and easily without engaging in a lecture to the offending
requester to improve their photography.
