Most of your list could be supported by either MacBook you listed. I think if you are a heavy user of Photoshop that you will find the MacBook Pro to be the better solution.
You version of Photoshop that you have on your Toshiba will not run on the Mac and will have to be replaced with the Mac version. Adobe may make you a deal on the Mac version. Call an ask their sales staff what they can do for you if you want to stay with PS.
Seeing as how you are planning on switching platform, you may want to check out two applications from Apple before you switch which are iPhoto and Aperture.
The first iPhoto will come with you Mac and is a way of storing photos and doing simple editing on them. It is very well integrated with the rest of the software on the Mac.
The other is Aperture. This is an extra cost item that is for the more serious user. It is capable of much more powerful edits on your photos.

Okay, so, if we set aside the whole photoshop thing for a second, which is better for the other things? Like internet, memory for photos, running fast with loading internet and computer itself [start up, loading photos, etc].

Without the PS, the MacBook Air should be able to handle that other work fine. It would also be lighter if that is important.
Loading photos into iPhoto can be handled by the MBA also.
It would be heavy hitters like Photoshop and Aperture that would need the MacBook Pro.

Okay, well, all in all which is the better laptop?
It's a lot of money to be spending, and considering they're the same price, I want to get the better one.

I have said everything I am going to say. It is now up to you.

you mentioned putting discs in your machine so that should eliminate the air.
