I'm sorry I can't give concrete examples, but I constantly use Reduce Noise, Add Grain and Gaussian Blur if that helps...

Yes! Most of the photos I take and edit I use filters on. The right filter can make a good shot an amazing shot. Just because it makes your job easier and quicker doesn't mean it's a cheat, but unfortunately there are a lot of people who feel that way about it.

Sure!

I used the gaussian on this one to make a softer look, plus a few level and curve tweaks.

This one has just your basic blur/smudge tools.

And this one uses a few curve and level changes along with saturation and I believe there is also a photo filter over it.

Yup..
When I used to click with a point nd shoot.. :D..
I was crazy for the filters (present in the filter gallery now)..

here's one example from my very old edits.. :)

(I don't really use them now.. I think because I want my pictures to look more realistic.. but I might use them for creative purposes in future)
