I am a long time paint user, and can do wonders in paint, but there is only so far you can go with paint....time to move to photoshop...

I am looking for some very simple tutorials, as everytime i try to do anything, I can never figure anything out....(btw, I have already seen the you suck at photoshop vidoes, and they look really good, but I am not even able to get that far with my lack of skills...

Please check my Photoshop FAQ. It is outdated, but will still help you as a beginner for what the tools do, how to install brushes/fonts. There is also a list of great tutorial sites listed there.

P.s. Splodge, any chance of updating my faq with the extra tools and stuff? I dont have CS3 so there are a few tools missing :thumbsup:
