Unless it's been added in the latest version of Elements, it's the full blown curves function. I find that I need to make rather subtle use of curves.
My total PS repertoire is levels, curves, crop, clone tool, unsharp mask, history brush (rare), lasso tool. On rare occasions I will flip an image, and on even rarer ones rotate slightly. Using a large format camera on a tripod with a spirit level means I do quite often get thrings straigh at the outset.
I think that that's complete. But note that I am a black and white film photographer who scans his 5x4 negatives, not a digital camera user who makes use of colour. I can see the value of layers and masks, but have yet to actually need/use them. I have tried the healing brush, but the clone stamp is superior for my work.
