    PSE is aimed at amateur photographers and new users, whereas PS is aimed at pros. For pros, functionality, and version to version consistency (some have been using PS for a decade or more,) trump ease of use and prettiness. PSE is pretty and easy to attract new users and people who don't want to spend hours and hours (weeks, months?) learning how to get the most out of their photo editor.

    I dont know about that. I think PSE is aimed at users who only need to touch-up photographs, adjust hue/saturation, brightness, crop, etc. regular PS is for users create and modify images past general retouching

    there is photoshop CS4 which is aimed at the "prosumers" so there isnt a need to simplify and make the interface more prettyful however, PSE has a quick and easy interface for the more average user

    oh yeah, adding some lens blur helps make it more realistic. only a little bit, like in an old photograph. and while in the lens blur dialog, increase the noise a little to make it look grainy. I made a picture using that technique, I think it worked out really well:
