You get a tutorial with the Photoshop package...  It's pretty good and goes through most of the main functions.

Here is a page with loads of links to Photoshop tutorials:

There are also some tutorials on the adobe site:

Instead of a web page i would recommend The Photoshop Bible published by IDG. Yes its huge but its easy reading and is LOADED with good info. I still use it as a reference. Otherwise the adobe site is probably your best bet.

Its not too bad...i think i paid $40 for it. Worth every penny. 830+ pages of reference material as well as a CD containing useful bits. Beats the tar out of the Photoshop manual.

Some other great books include "The Photoshop Wow Book" and "Photoshop Text Majic."  I use the first of the two all the time.

but offcourse the best way to learn Photoshop still is trial and error, that's how most of us learn. I did it that way, and it has worked for me, and i really never was a genius when it comes to Graphics.

I've never read the manual, or any book on photoshop...  Even found out the short-cut keys by mistake   8o)

Not reading the manuals and working by trial and error does have its merits. But 500 monkeys on the moon all typing for a million years wouldnt find ALL the keyboard commands. It does help to have reference material for that type of thing. BTW the photoshop manual doesnt even list all the keyboard shortucts.

Photoshop 5.5 Visual Quickstart Guide by Peachpit press. $20 great book for begin-intermediate. Not a bunch of crap to read through, they cut to the chase. Not as detailed as the "Bible" weed mentioned. But you get your $20 worth.

i still think wading through the program is the best way to get you started achong, i did it too, and it's not that hard to learn at all.

Just teach yourself the basics first and then keep searching for ways to make your life a bit easier....you can do it!! Even i could!!

Try www.alexdg.com, his tutorials offer a lot, even if it doesnt provide that "special effect" you are looking for. His site helped me get started, and to be honest with you, I'm a lot better since.
