I would like some suggestions on some good web sites/books for learning photoshop cs2 9. I am a total n00b when it comes to photoshop. My only experience with graphics is limited to MS paint. I am totally lost trying to figure this program out, please help!
There are a bunch of them around. I usually just play around with it and see what it does or just google the tutorial I am looking for and learn it from the site. If you really want to experienced in photoshop, you should buy the tutorial books.
I recommend Photoshop Bible and reading and working through it slowly over a couple of months. Books like that cover everything - they explain all the tools and filters, everything. Read through, take your time, underline important things and just keep working with it. Treat it like a college course. It is hard, but it can be learned. In 3-4-5 months, you will have a good understanding of PS.
It will be the best $ you ever spent. Tutorials are great once you know the program
