I thought this may be of some interest to those who are
new to Photoshop and maybe to some who seek to learn a
few new tricks.

The kind folks at are proud to present

This guide starts right at the very bottom, assuming no knowledge at all,
and walks you through all basic aspects of the application. The guide
even comes with three full pages of shortcuts, cheat sheets covering all
the application’s possibilities!
