Photoshop CS5 Intermediate. I don't use layers. I do use many other tools. I have used Photoshop since the 90's.
I learned by dogged determination, by endless hours in the U of R multimedia lab. Trial and error, mostly. Help menu, occasional help from students running the lab. Arghhh...
Portrait touch-ups, web, artistic, photo repair & restoration, color correction, removing objects from photos, major alterations, (drying a dress, fertilizing grass, weeding, hairstyling, that sort of thing). I'm not sure what compositing and HDR are.
Layers and lots more! There's plenty I don't know in PS! I can look in the manual and find lots of things.
I'm a musician (cellist)and an amateur photographer.
