    Does anyone know of any good online tutorials, or books, that explain photoshop CS2 in a way thats easy to understand? I just got the software but am not very familiar with it's advanced capabilities. Thanks for everyone's time.

    I have been using the cs2 book by scott kelby as far as doing a specific task. It doesn't tell you what to do to achieve the effect you want or tell you about specific features of the program. It just says, gives you step by step instructions for specific tasks such as removing something from your picture. Does that make sense? Not sure I explained that very good. I am interested in finding a good book that will teach the ins and outs of CS2.

    Just wanted to let you know that that book is only $25.19 at Amazon. A lot better than paying $39.99. You could also read the reviews at Amazon to get a better idea about the book if you haven't already. IF you end of getting it, let us know how it is.

    There is also this one that has better rating and since you are new, it may help you as well

    Sorry about linking you to Amazon, but I am obsessed with finding the best deal ;) If you have amazon prime or can get a trial if it (if you place the order, you may get a trial) you will get 2 day shipping for free.
