The Photoshop Book (insert version here) for Digital Photographers by Scott Kelby is my personal favorite

I wanted to second ohenry's suggestion. I have The Photoshop CS book for digital photographers. It is thin on words, and BIG on pictures (of menus and the like.) It isn't the deepest book on the planet, but it's a good one. I've learned some very good stuff from it. And I'm very new to Photoshop as well.

Is it for ps 7 or elements? I'm having a very difficult time finding the time to learn elements. I have two small children. I wanted to find a class (as I learn best that way), but I'm not having any luck. Thanks...

hmm i've heard of a Adobe Photoshop 7.0 For Photographers that looked REALLY good...if you don't have CS....i don't have it (the book or CS) so i can't tell you "how" good it is...but it looked like it covered alot.....it is written by .....hm....i can't remember the first name! shoot! sry .,...well the last name is Evening.....enjoy

most of photoshop is learned by practicing and playing around.....(at least the creating graphics part.....which is the part i like to do...as you can see by my signature)

Can enyone recommend a good video training course for PS6? I seem to fall asleep these days any time I try to read for more than a few minutes. I think it has something to do with the aging procezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Check out Adobe's Web site. I believe they have videos. They also have some free online movies. Anyway, they did the last time I looked, which was a while ago.

Odd. The aging process in me has worked differently. Stick me in front of a video and I pass right out. Better than barbiturates.
