    Greetings,
    I am new to computer manipulation of digital photographs. Way back in my youth I was a very keen darkroom addict. I would like to rekindle my interest in photography and DSLR was the obvious way to go. I bought an entry level DSLR (Samsung G1L ( a Pentax lookalike)) and invested in PS CS3 Extended. I am now so totally overwhelmed that I hardly know where to start. I tried to purchase "PS CS3 for Dummies" but our South African supplier cant seem to find a copy. A friend mentioned an e-book 123ds but have no idea what it contains. Can anyone suggest reading material that will get me started and allow me to learn as I go? Thank you in advance for your help!

    Try PhotoshopForum.com. If you surf thru the threads, there are all kinds of links for online tutorials. I have learned quite a bit this way. Also, try this link: http://www.photoshopessentials.com/basics. Good luck!

    I was having some difficulty learning Photoshop 7 recently, and have many books and have looked at many websites. The best learning tool that I have found so far is a computer program by Keyko on the subject. I bought it from ebay for $9.99, it's very simple and makes it easy to learn. No problems running it on my windows vista computer. you may want to try that.

    Other places:

    - There are at least 15 photoshop forums that I googled on the net

    - YOUTUBE has at least a hundred tutorials and many hundreds more examples of how to do things in CS2-CS3

    - My fav is books. Anything with Scott Kelby is ok (if you can put up with his lame humor)

    - Lynda.com has many DVDs including one 11 hour series on how to use CS3 in a creative environment. I heard that video was very good.

    A google or dogpile will give you thousands of places to search. After that it is upto you to decide what is best for you.

    Walk into any bookshop and I guarantee you'll find a photoshop related book. I suggest though you look in the library first.

    I don't rate books for Photoshop. Not because there rubbish, I just picked everything up better from video tutorials. I payed for mine on lynda.com, it's cheap but there should be plenty of free tuts on Youtube. Experiment with different learning tecniques.
