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.
Oh, well if that's all, you can get free Curves Actions for Elements (and lots of other Actions as well). I've been using one on my PSE 6 for about five years. It's exactly the same as the Photoshop one...........
. This isn't the one I've been using but it looks just as good. You can also get 'Channels' Actions and many others......... check out
it's a whole suite of Actions - there's a free trial and that's probably got as much as you need.
