I needed help

Well, I've een looking around and I can't find a good Photoshop guide for beginners, and I was hoping you guys could help me out. I was blown away by the stuff you made in Flickr. I looked at Adobe's own guide but it wasn't very useful to me.

I really don't know a good PS Book...maybe the Dummies series? I kind of learned by playing around with it and trial and error...but if you have any questions you can e-mail me at I know the answer I'll send you a step-by-step. I am around the intermediate to semi-pro level.

When you get more familiar with PS there's a podcast called Photoshop Guys that's really nice too.

Did a search on and it looks like Photoshop Classroom in a book had a lot of good reviews.
