Probably the fact that you are using a computer program to manipulate pictures, designs etc in a two dimensional medium that does not have an actual light source...and that what we think of as photography is a 3rd dimensionally rendering in that 2 dimensional difference asthetically. For example: You see a lot of people's PS artwork use dropshadow effects. But since they are not thinking in terms of the photographic principles if they do not actually take the photo - they might make the error of causing the shadow to drop in the wrong direction from the way something would cast from a light source in reality. It might not be even something they think about, but to a trained eye it looks horribly unnatural, and can ruin the picture. All effects in photoshop were originally things that were done with a camera, flash, darkroom, or chemical processes by hand. Yet we take this very for granted these days. My answer : It is difficult to use PS without making unnatural effects, the hardest thing is to make PS maniuplations not detectable and therefore effective.
overall, PS is a very challenging program to use. Most of the time, complicated effects = more difficult. almost all tools require familiarity and lots of practice in order to be used effectively. I'd say the most difficult thing bout using photoshop is fusing your creativity to your familiarity of the tools plus your resourcefulness. You need to materialize what you want inside your head, then(difficult part) painstakingly transfer it to photoshop by utilizing the -available- tools. For example, you want to draw a girl; you need to visualize her and then draw her just as you imagined her. Every effect/special effect you can imagine is achievable, the question is how. Do you want to make her look real? Do you want her to be cartoonish? or maybe 3d? it becomes more difficult base on how you want it. The tools are limited but if you use a combination of tools then it becomes possible, you just have to find a way > which is harder than it looks.
I wouldn't say Photoshop is difficult - it just requires a lot of time and patience - and that is about the only difficulty it poses. One cannot come up with stunning photo manipulations over night. To learn the consequences of different effects and filters is one thing but to know how to combine those effects to get a particular effect you want will take time and a lot of practice. For example, you may know what the "Noise" tool does or what a gradient tool does or how to use the transform tool and change the perspective of an image; but you may not know that these three things can be combined in a certain way to create quite a realistic ocean surface from scratch. Photoshop requires a lot of experimentation and exploration to discover its potential and there's always more to learn about it. A good way to get started and discover exactly how far-reaching each and every filter is, is by going through online tutorials. Get a hang of the basics, and then use the more complex tutorials to achieve more advanced effects. As you keep discovering different ways in which the filters can be used, you'll be able to combine your knowledge and use it start implementing your own original ideas. Take some time and lots of patience over it and Photoshop can do wonders
Its not easy to design a professional art but anybody can use Photoshop for basic designing such as photo retouching and also there are thousands of tutorial available on the internet. Using online tutorials we can create good looking art without having knowledge of Photoshop.
