    Probably not the best spot to post this - but a mod will be by shortly.
    My suggestion would just be to play.
    Open it up and play. I wouldn't do anything with layers if you're just starting out.
    Go to Google and type in Beginner Photoshop Tutorials. Hundreds of websites will come up.

    I don't think there's any reason to spend money on a book, there's already so much great stuff on the net. Whenever I find a good tutorial, I just save it in a Word document.

    People sell books on Amazon second hand if you don't want to pay the price of new ones.

    I am horrified how much half inch thick computer manuals cost. In Borders (British Media shop, books music etc) a half inch thick manual on HTML coding costs £59.
    For a book?
    lol

    Scott Kelby writes the best Photoshop books imho, and has some that are geared towards the digital photographer. It's always a good idea to just type "photoshop tutorials" into google.

    Here's a site I found that has heaps of Photoshop Tutorials (over 8000 actually so that should keep you pretty busy)
    http://www.good-tutorials.com/

    Some of the links are dead but there's so much stuff here you're bound to get some ideas. Just don't get distracted everytime you go there like happens to me.
