She is wowed by photo (and video) editing. When I'm working on a photograph, she likes to sit on my lap and tell me to get rid of red eye, remove spots, fix lines etc. She has a good eye and it's helpful to have her by my side when I'm editing fine details in an image (using the Clone Stamp or Spot Healing Brush tools in Photoshop etc.)
