    Hi

    I have just started to learn Photoshop V7 at TAFE and would like to
    know what users believe are the basics that need to be learnt first.
    Then what sort of thing are needed to be learnt for website
    development (common).

    Also a list of good sites with Photoshop tutorials (Info & videos)
    that you would recommend and any magazines suitable for website/image
    editing etc.

    Computer Arts (uk graphics mag, that you can usually pickup at any major
    US book store as an import) - has an annual PS tutorial compilation.

    Also, Adobe has an excellent book series called "Classroom in a Book",
    which you can also find in most major bookstores. These lessons /
    tutorials will get a person up to speed in no time (IMO). I think that
    instructors can download the chapters in pdf format from Adobe. They just
    have to register with Adobe as a teacher.

    Look at the Adobe Classroom in a book series. That will teach you the
    basics.

    The sort of thing you need to learn for web site develo[pment re.
    Photoshop is DON'T USE PHOTOSHOP.
    I can't recommend any magazines as I don't know what you can get in
    NZ. if you can get British magazines though, Digital Photo is a good
    place to start - they have excellent tutorials.

    Web sites:

    This is a really good intro. It is OK reading the books and web sites but a
    lot of them get you into bad working habits. Eg not using keyboard
    shortcuts. IMO most of the web are very bad. The 'Teacher' is usually self
    taught and is really only passing on nice effects that please them. Always
    look to see if the author has any photoshop qualifications and examples of
    their work. (No reference to the above, I havn't looked at them) I have been
    using Photoshop daily for over five years and been on two courses. I would
    not feel I was qualified to write a web tutorial or teach it.

    work. Usually for quality reproduction. To use it for Web work is like
    working as a butcher with a set of surgeons instruments. I'm sure many can
    steer you towards a Web tool.
