    ok comes to PS, i am a total dummy. before i know anything about PS, i only used it for image resizing and cropping as well as auto constrast, auto tone etc.

    i did not pay to attend classes... but i did buy a second hand CS4 book (by Scott Kelby, its a good book, full of screen shots, simple sentences which makes understanding easier), i opt not to borrow from library cos i know this book i will keep very long (after all... CS4 is so huge to learn!).

    after reading a few chapters, i realised that Adobe Raw and some features from CS 4 formed up Lightroom!

    next book i am getting will be Lightroom 3 by the same author.

    I find that using software its tough to do trial and error especially u had no prior knowledge. so a tutorial book will always comes in handy to guide you on the correct path.

    Shooting wise, you can do trial and error and learn pretty fast once you have some basic understandings.

    I bought the "Classroom in a Book" by Adobe and found that to be quite good. Every chapter has exercises so that you can practice the new concepts being taught.

    When/if I ever get the time, I am thinking of subscribing to the online courses offered by a few companies. My niece uses Lynda.com and says that it is very good.

    But by far, I've done most of my learning through on-line sites like this one.

    There are tons of tutorials (youtube videos) in the net. Just google for them. BTW I only learn the workflow I needed from the tutorials and books from the library.
