    Tutorials I tend to find as and when I need to learn a feature.

    Step 1 with proper image editing is learn what layers and how to use them.

    Step 2 is learn selection options and how to use them (especially in conjunction with layers)

    After this everything is so much point and click and memorisation of keyboard shortcuts (shift for straight lines sort of thing).

    Some stuff is covered in http://docs.gimp.org/2.6/en/ although it is more of a reference manual than I am new to image editing which is probably better covered by http://www.gimp.org/tutorials/

    Similarly many of the photoshop tutorials do cover image editing in general so have a look there as well.

    Never practice. Just sit down and make stuff. That way, you discover what works best for you. Look up the tutorials as you need them.

    There are hundreds in YouTube. I learned all my skills there and some websites of course.
