So I bought Photoshop recently, mainly because I was convinced to by some crappy salesman.
But Ive never used it in my life and have no idea how to.

Has anyone found any good tutorials for photoshop in the past?

I googled, but found nothing but shitty ones that expect you to pay to learn.
So if anyone knows of any good ones, it'd be great!

Didn't know Adobe was selling of their flagship.

Oh, you mean you 'bought a licence to use'?

If you don't know what to do with it, then you should have downloaded 'the Gimp' and used the money to buy more gear.
Just because I have some strong opinions doesn't mean I agree with everything I say.

I find it odd that you would buy something before you knew how to use it.

I would look for tutorials on Youtube.

Erm...we buy stuff all the time before knowing how to use it. That's what instructions are for.

Very successful or very handsome?

Well it depends on what you actually want, but my school has loads of them just on Word documents. I'm happy to save them and e-mail them to you (some are shorter than others!)

Anything to help a fellow Adelaidian!

Youtube is your friend and it helped me a lot with Adobe tutorials.

I'd get used to basics like setting light levels and removing red eye in some old photos but after that you can start doing face swaps.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D3p3OJIiGFY
Drawing stuff is a bit of a pain until you get a dedicated drawing pad for your PC/Mac but you'll be able to make some really awesome stuff.

Basically, almost anything rasta-based you want to happen, will happen in photoshop.
There's a good chance that what I've written above is useless and if you take any of the advice it's your own fault.

Googling 'free photoshop tutorials'
Or '___ in photoshop' with ___ being the technique you want to use works for me

first, congrats... Photoshop is the a very powerful and deep program. I have used it for many MANY years and still find hidden gems. Most important don't get overwhelmed by it, at first it is going to be crazy confusing but as you get used to it you will get better. Try to find a local "adobe user group" either online or one that holds meetings, we have one where i live and i always come away with really awesome tips and tricks. Other than online searches find an easy to use book at your local library, take as many as you can out and find the one or two that fits your level. from there just play around and experiment.
1) layers are your friend! once you learn layers life becomes much easier
2) take your time and play around with different images and effects
3) just like a guitar the only real way to get better is to practice practice practice

I would find a classroom text book or a lab book on ebay.

Learning photoshop helps teache you how to use a lot of adobe's other products too. Things like adobe flash have a lot of the same features.

From experience, it takes years to really get to grips with what Photoshop can do. I'd start with some tutorials on youtube, then just experiment yourself.

I'm not sure why you bought it though.... there are much easier/cheaper options for people who aren't doing anything complex/professional.

I have Photoshop software in my personal computer and i also use it to make perfect every image. Real photos can not look good without editing with software. I have Photoshop CS4 and it works very well. You can search in youtube to learn about any software. This site give you full detail of it.
