There’s a really great series of totally free Photoshop basics tutorials on psdtuts+ , for those interested in learning the basics or just brushing up on stuff not used in a while.
They are taught by Martin Parhiniak who is a graphics designer and Certified Expert Design Master by Adobe where he worked for three years.
Anyway, Martin’s vids are free on the website: http://psd.tutsplus.com/sessions/photoshop-basix/
What’s really nice about these vids is that they are 5-10 minutes in length and cover 25 topics starting with “Your First Rendezvous With Photoshop” and going through a wide variety of subjects: Layers, masks, Bridge, etc.
Mr. Parhiniak is originally from Hungary, so he does have a slight accent in his English (which is excellent) but he’s very easily understood.
