    ...and the other CS2 apps? I'd love to learn how to do this. I know there's a bunch of guides out there but I'm curious if this forum has any recommendations.

    The ones that come with CS2 when you buy it. There are also the ones you can get dirt cheap on amazon. Adobe's own "Classroom in a Book" series, you have to buy them as well.

    My favorite free internet Adobe guides are and

    From beginners to advanced users, lots of cool tricks and effects and I like the fact that most of the guides actually show how to accomplish a given task instead of pages and pages of theory that most people get bored with as everyone wants to see the results damn it :p

    Finally I have arrived.....
    I have used:
    Adobe's Classroon in a book series (PS, Illustrator, and Indesign)
    How to cheat in Photoshop (this is a good book to learn good techniques) Real-world Photoshop CS2
    Deke's Adobe PS CS2 one-on-one
    Photoshop Restoration & Retouching (this is a good solid book)
    Photoshop Masking & Compositing
    Adobe Photoshop CS2 for the Web H-O-T (I used H-O-T series for Dreamweaver, Flash, and Actionscript)

    I am almost done with the last one (CS2 for the Web H-O-T) and am going to start "Adobe Phhotoshop CS2 for Photographers by Martin Evening."

    All of the above books come with some practice files to try out what you are learning as you go through the chapters.

    I tried to read PS Gone Wild book; but, it was a little difficult to follow the steps as the author does not spell out the steps clearly.
