I just got CS6 - where should I go for In Design and Photoshop "How To?"

I would love to get a book or good website or tutorial series to start working on how to use In Design or Photoshop.

Any help would be awesome.

this whole series was ported to youtube with captions. i imagine it's even more enjoyable if you're from the d division.

season 1 episode 1 You Suck at Photoshop - Distort, Warp, & Layer Effects - YouTube

TF, Photoshop and InDesign are two completely different programs, and while they will work in conjunction, they have very different end results. InDesign is great for creating magazine articles, CD covers, flyers, posters, brochures, etc.

Photoshop is a very useful and very powerful software program so there is also a large learning curve. But once you get, it's AWESOME! I'm in my 4th Photoshop class and I thought I knew something before I started. I still have two more to go as well.

As with anything, you get what you pay for. There are a lot of great videos on YouTube but I find a lot of them to be lacking or rudimentary. There are some great websites dedicated to tutorials, but most require a financial commitment. Check out, and in no particular order;
  1. Photoshop User | Learn Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom and Digital Photography | NAPP (National Association of Photoshop Professionals)
  2. lynda.com | Online video tutorials & training
  3. Online software tutorials, training CDs, Photoshop Tutorials, Dreamweaver Tutorials, Apple Tutorials from vtc.com (Lots of great intro and beginner videos and you can watch some videos before signing up)

CD,

Thanks - I knew they were two different programs. I just got them both loaded on my computer and wanted to start learning on both.

I figured you were aware of the differences. I found InDesign to be a much easier program to learn.

One thing to keep in mind about PS, there are as many ways to accomplish a goal as there are tools with which to accomplish it. Also, try and learn about non-destructive editing early on.

Find a list of shortcuts and learn those. They are very handy in the long run. I'd suggest more but I'm nowhere near my stuff. Have fun with it
