I know these are a couple years old and may have been posted before, but Lynda.com has 40 FREE videos on the Top 40 tools in Photoshop CS4 as presented by Deke McClellend a very knowledgeable Photoshop guru who counts down these extremely helpful videos a little in the fashion of Casey Kasem.


Start at page 4 for the first video, #40 and go up. These are extremely helpful and fundamental videos to watch to learn Photoshop, and are broad enough to apply to CS5 and even to older versions of Photoshop.

Bookmark and happy watching!

Keep in mind it may be a good idea to watch some of the videos about tools you "already know," because he mentions a lot of things like shortcuts, special options and other advanced stuff you might not know.

I can't find a list, but google "Photoshop Top 40 Countdown with Deke McClelland". I think they may be hosted, or at least linked on other sites.
