The best place to learn photoshop, or any piece of software for that matter, is on-the-job. Nothing really ups the learning curve like a deadline.
I'd set yourself challenging goals if you don't have a live brief and try and meet them.
Almost everything I've ever wanted to know about image manipulation was quite easy to find online - there are simply thousands of good tutorials about photoshop, just need to wade about until you find a site you find useable.
it may seem bad but the only way to get expertise in photoshop is doing changes in someother PSD Files and learn the styles they have used.
More importantly the passion to learn PS and Web Design is far more worth and will eventually lead to the sources.
Try books like Katrin eismann ,scott kelby and indepth knowledge in ps compositing will be jus fine.

Loads and LOADS of video tutorials, practical exercises and so on. You pay for it (I think it's either $300 for a year's access, or $25 monthly) and you'll be astounded how quick you can progress.
Thoroughly recommend it.
