    I mean 100% newb, never used PS before. I downloaded CS 5 and am just a tad lost.

    Are there any tutorials that you can watch and do at the same time? Kind of like hands on?

    So far I am using the Adobe tutorials

    Hey I'm a noob too and I have been doing things like searching on youtube for things I'm trying to make like sun rays, or deeper colors, or anything really. IE Photoshop sun rays.

    Also I have been searching tools like "Photoshop Brush Tool" and theres pretty much a tut vid on EVERYTHING on youtube.

    You can use the line tool. make it a thicker stroke. THen you can blur it a bunch in a side to side motion with a bigger brush.

    There is not a whole lot on CS5, since its pretty new. I have found some stuff and worked with it. I can now cut faces, and paste them onto other bodies, and make rain :D

    Is CS5 built on CS4 with some new features?

    Basically if I watch CS4 videos, those should work in CS5 right?

    I am also thinking of doing the Lynda videos. I have watched some samples on adobes site and I like the flow, and how the instructor explains clearly step by step.

    You tube seems like you have to have a basic understanding or at least know what you are looking for, which I dont, not yet.
