    I just thought I'd mention, for those that don't know... there are several manufacturers offering online photography training units:

    http://www.betterphoto.com/online-photography-short-courses.asp
    TONS of different courses for a little under $200 bucks each

    http://www.kodak.com/US/en/digital/dlc/index.jhtml
    Kodak offers a lot of mini-trainings on "family oriented" type things

    http://www.photocourse.com/title-textbook.htm
    For $12, looks like quite an extensive beginner course - on CD - almost 300 pages!

    http://www.usa.canon.com/content/eos_guidebook/index.html
    Canon provides a hell of a manual (FREE) for those shooting Canon - but some topics are applicable to all.

    http://www.photoworkshop.com/adobe/software_cinema
    Photoshop Training Videos online (FREE).

    http://www.photoworkshop.com/sandisk/index
    Sandisk offers a few tutorials on asset management, camera maintenance, and shooting sports. Kindof an odd combination of topics, but FREE

    http://www.photoworkshop.com/photo101
    Has a nice little writeup on the Art of Seeing

    http://www.photoworkshop.com/rooms3d
    Lots of different training resources for FREE

    http://movielibrary.lynda.com/html/modListing.asp
    Has a few videos on Photoshop you can view for FREE to see if you might like their multimedia video style of training.

    http://www.lexar.com/dp/tips_lessons/index.html
    Lots and lots of articles on a variety of topics - Shooting Kids to Getting Started as a Pro Photographer, Selective Focus, Filters, etc. FREE

    http://www.shortcourses.com/store/index.html
    Offers books specific to your camera model. I have this book myself for my camera... takes some of the things that were hard to understand in the user guide and makes them easy to use.

    http://www.webphotoschool.com/all_lessons/free_lessons/index.html
    Three FREE sample lessons: lighting glass, strobes, and macro.

    http://www.luminous-landscape.com/tutorials/
    One of my very favorite sites! Check out these tutorials! FREE

    http://www.photographytips.com/
    A site I just found, but offers tons of things for the beginner... and maybe for advanced too... tons of information. I'll have to look more.

    Hope this is helpful to others,
