The best way to learn, in my opinion is to learn the basics, then try some tutorials and finally mess about with your newly found knowledge.

A few essential things to know are layers, but I’ll assume you already know about that (Window → Layers) and well, it depends on your styles.

The useful Paint Bucket may be hiding behind the Gradient tool (it’s a rectangle going from black to white) and the Pencil is hiding in the Brush icon. Lot’s of useful tools hide behind others

A fun thing to do is to do a massive gradient on a blank document and play around with the filter’s in (strangely enough) the Filter menu.

Once you’ve learnt a few filters and so on and so forth, try heading to www.good-tutorials.com and check out the Photoshop section.

Hope that helps!

Photoshop’s real function is for enhancing photos and faking photos but you could make some.

Learning the layers, how to use the brush and the pen, filters as Venzael said, and your creativity is all you need.

It’s fun but I prefer Illustrator for drawing and then, I’ll use Photoshop to enhance it.

just a question… people use photoshop to create image and edit photos right?

I personally use photoshop for web-design and such things like logos’s. I don’t find it hard to create something from scratch.. You just need ideas and the ability to make your own brushes,textures, and whatever you need to make something that is completely yours. But certain images are hard to make without sources.

wich i don’t have

if is that easy, write me a guide telling me the basics and not how to do a giant bat with blood in the teeth …

Many tutorials on Photoshop/Illustrator/Flash starts like this:

1. Artistically sketch the bat.

2. Trace it via the pen tool (Which is very usable in Fireworks, I believe)

3. Put shading and use filters.
