Just get the program and fool around, that's what I did and now I'm the department manager for graphic design for the company I work for.

The best way to learn Photoshop is by teaching yourself via the means of the internet. I learned the basics at school but I can tell you right now, you need to practice yourself if you want to be efficient and effective. The basic's are not that difficult though. Have fun!

What are you trying to do with Photoshop? Are you using it more for design, or digital painting, or something else?

For Photoshop as an art media, you might find some of the tutorials here interesting. Some of the contributors are especially well recognized Game artists.

Also, I'm sure there are a million tutorials on youtube.

To learn at home:
Option 1: Pure experimentation. Create new documents and experiment with different tools, filters, blending modes, etc. If there's something you don't know....

Option 2: Get a subscription to Lynda.com and apply yourself. It's a wonderful resource for learning a lot of software, including the Adobe Suite.

Option 3: Online tutorials from various sources; youtube, graphic design websites, wherever. These can be awesome, or terrible.


You might also consider higher education facilities, or continuing education. Community colleges often offer courses that will teach you Photoshop, either in Art, Mass Communication or Photography, depending on your focus.
