- Which version of Photoshop do you have?

- All versions come with very good tutorials for beginners. Just look under Help (on the Menu bar at the top of your PHotoshop window).

- If you are more comfortable with tutorials from a website, here are a couple of links to good tutorials for beginners...

http://www.absolutecross.com/tutorials/photoshop/
or
http://www.planetphotoshop.com/tutorials.html

(The second one has very good video tutorials)

Good Luck!

There should be good tutorials on the installation disks as well.

You've got to check these out: http://www.imarc.net/blog/85/ahhhhh_oy_alien_invasion_a_photoshop_tutorial/ & http://www.photoshoplab.com/the-elegant-studio-shot.html

Just by doing one or both of those short tutorials, you'll learn so much about Photoshop. The best way to learn is by doing. I think you'll gain some powerful tools by completing those two.

As far as opening a Microsoft Publisher file (.pub) in Adobe Photoshop, you can't.

As far as editing content from a Publisher file in Photoshop, you can ... to a point.

BEST WAY TO USE BOTH PROGRAMS:
I always open my jpeg files in Photoshop, save them as a Photoshop file and do all my wonderful modifications. Once I have my finished image (or whatever) saved, I do a "save as" and save it to a jpeg file.

I then insert the jpeg into Publisher.

If I need to make any additional changes to the image, I open the original Photoshop file (.psd), make my changes, then do a "save as" to a jpeg once again, and insert it into the Publisher document.


APPLES AND ORANGES:
Keep in mind that Publisher is primarily for desktop publishing. Its Adobe "equivalent" (and I use the term loosely) would be InDesign (or before that, PageMaker). Photoshop is for digital manipulation in which I am not aware of any equivalent in Microsoft.


IF YOU MUST:
If I must extract something out of Publisher, the way I can do it is to go to the page I want, group everything on the page (or just components from that page that I would like to bring into Photoshop),
Right click on the item (or grouped items) and choose “Save as Picture”
In the next dialogue box, after “Save as type” - change it to .jpg
Click on the “Change” button and choose “Commercial Printing 300 dpi”
Then name the file.

Then you can open that newly created jpeg file in Photoshop and immediately save as a .psd file.
However, this does by no means guarantee great quality, but it can be done if it has to...

Again, it all depends on what in Publisher you are trying to bring into Photoshop and why.


Hope this satisfactorily addresses this part of your question!
