Too frequently, we don't. This approach has dramatically reduced the photography skill set during the previous couple of years and it's going to get even worse.
Rather than learn to be amazing photographers, we're learning to be great at 'fixing' photos in Photoshop.
I 've nothing against Photoshop, but nevertheless, it should be utilized as a 'tweak' in photography. Not a fix.
Among the 'tweaks' we will frequently use Photoshop to add is the effect of filters.
Should you simply need a color wash across the full image Photoshop is excellent at that!

Polarizers, give us much better heavens, and remove glare from shiny things. It's tough to envision shooting an outdoor photo without one.

There's less protection if you keep your own wallet in a purse, but it still makes it more difficult to get the wallet from your bag surreptitiously.
