You use photoshop to composite stills. Compositing plays a large role in how good the quality of your final shot is. Look up information on effects and tricks you can do with compositing and multipass rendering.

But when exploring rendering I think it'd be better to get a dedicated compositing program like fusion or shake.

Yeah, as mentioned above, you can use Photoshop to enhance rendered stills, by adjusting colour balance, contrast, saturation, even adding effects like blooms or depth of field (using a zdepth pass), or compositing together various passes. However, this is only really effective if dealing with single images. If you're going to be working with entire rendered sequences, you're going to want to consider investing in a dedicated compositing application, such as After Effects, Combustion, or more high end tools like Digital Fusion, Shake or Nuke.
