[COLOR=blue]Hey, I'm really into Graphical / Fantasy and 3D Design stuff, but don't really have much experiance, I've got a copy of Photoshop CS, which i do use on a regular basis (mainly for changing image sizes, saturation and sometimes cropping etc) - Just the basics, however, i wish to know more![/COLOR] [COLOR=blue][/COLOR] [COLOR=blue]I'm at college at the moment, and hope to go into one of a few things once left (one of them includes Graphic Design), i figure if i learn about it now, it will help me in the future![/COLOR] [COLOR=blue][/COLOR] [COLOR=blue]I know my way around the basics of Photoshop, and i mainly use it for the reasons above, i mess about with items usually to see what they do (and there has been the odd occasion when i have cropped some mates faces onto dodgy looking pictures and made them look somewhat good - but thats for another time :p[/COLOR] [COLOR=blue][/COLOR] [COLOR=blue]I just wish to get more involved with the graphical design end of things, i don't know if you need any other software or if you can simple doodle around on Photoshop and create a masterpeice![/COLOR] [COLOR=blue][/COLOR] [COLOR=blue]Teach Me :p[/COLOR]

Here's a tip: Just experiment. Try to do something by yourself and then come back here if you get stuck. Most, if not all, of us have never received formal training. We just got the program and then started to experiment. Tutorials also help, but the main thing is getting your hands dirty.

What he said. I followed a total of two tutorials in me learning process and never received any form of training from a third. The graphics department has learned me a lot.
