    The Adobe classroom in a book series are excellent and cover a lot of bases without being highly technical or too advanced. I highly recommend them. There are also a ton of websites that are devoted to photoshop tutorials.

    www.moesrealm.com (my site, I don't update the Photoshop stuff anymore)
    Do a search for Photoshop tutorials and you will find all the information you could possibly want.
    If you have a specific question I will do my best to help you.

    I havn't read anything on Photoshop 7, I've learnt everything just by playing around. It's amazing what you can do with this program.

    yeah....i like what the program can do and i know it's uber-powerful.

    problem is i don't know where to even start. it's just too overwhelming for me.

    i must be gettin' old...or lazy....or both!

    There are usually a few tutorials right on the Photoshop disk. Might be a decent starting point.

    I have Photoshop Elements. Could someone briefly explain the differences (limitations) as compared with Photoshop?

    Cool effects, Moe.
