    Though i got some things covered, like layers and such. And i had a mess about with my FF wallpaper
    Though its not nearly as good as some people on here, i think its alright (i guess) for my first time [​IMG]

    You're much better than me when I just started out. When I first used photoshop I only knew how to use "Drop Shadow", "Outer Glow" and "Scale Image". [​IMG]
    But I kinda lol'd at you using the rubber tool. [​IMG]

    EDIT: Damn, stupid "503 Error" thing. [​IMG]

    Very bad, you're not even supposed to use the rubber for rendering images... Pen tool or lasso works great.

    Avoid the eraser or the lasso when cutting out images.
    Use da pen tool, it is much easier, and if you make a mistake, CTRL+ALT+Z.

    oh well, nothing really, I use it a lot, but I prefer not using it on large cutouts because I can mess up and not undo

    C4D...
    Some abstract thing for effects... I dunno. I don't use them much. I usually use abstract brushes.

    Yes you do [​IMG]
    It's a C4D and it's like a transparent background, look on Planet Renders for them, and there's nothing special about dropping a render on top of a background, anyone can do that, be a bit more creative, layer effects, brushes etc.

    Don't worry, you are great for a beginner. It just is experience that gets you around [​IMG] But get to know filters and plugins, they are awesome [​IMG] There are some nice places to get started at:

    FilterForge - A nice plugin to use to create your own custom filters. I haven't used it yet, but it looks VERY nice.

    Tutorials are nice places to get to learn more of PhotoShop's features.

    Planet PhotoShop - Nice tutorials that help you with designing really awesome graphics [​IMG]

    These are just starters, but Google is a great help with this. Search up 'PhotoShop Tutorials' in Google, and you'll be amazed.

    Have fun [​IMG]

    CTRL-Z is Undo and Redo, which only can go one step forward or backwards.

    CTRL-ALT-Z in PhotoShop is "Step Forward" and "Step Backward," which allow you to undo or redo up to as much as you want depending on your system's memory (I think it's 10-20 by default, I could be wrong). It allows you to even go up to 200 History steps, if I'm not mistaken.

    i'd suggest you wont go directly to wallpapering for that is the hardest skill to master.

    Go with signatures and avatars , i'd personally work this way (helped me a lot)

    Avatar (watch other's avatars and see how they made them and make one of your own pretty much like that )
    Signature ( Learn the basic ideas.)
    Huge Project (Work on it A LOT and hard , I built 3 sites just for practice..)
    Wallpaper
    Work with photography(camera ! Not video game photography , you can do that whenever you want)
    Drawing and photoshopping it
    Create Stuff From NOTHING.

    I actually coverd all of these except Photography.
