Hi there!

Could someone please recommend a good photoshop tutorial or podcast?
Im thinking about taking a basic course here in town but in the meantime Id like to familiarize myself with it and take it from there.Id like to play around with photos(cloning , etc) and make banners, etc.

Thanks so much in advance! :-)

Get a good book! There are TONS of them out there. Personally, I would recommend "The Photoshop Book for Digital Photographers" by Scott Kelby. An enormously informative book. It is of course targeted at dealing with photographs, not at vector art and other things you can do with Photoshop. However, within this very large usage category, it is one of the best I have read. When you're ready, the next "must read" is "Photoshop CS Killer Tips" also by Kelby. There may be a revised "CS2" version of this book by now - I haven't looked.

These books are all beautifully done on high quality paper with lots of color screen shots to demonstrate what he is talking about. I can't recommend them enough.

My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
My iStuff: 64GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPad4, 30GB iPod Video, 16GB iPod Touch
My OS': Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Mac OS X Tiger, Mac OS 9.2.2, openSUSE 10.3

you can browse the photoshop section if you only want photoshop tutorials. Well, that's usually my web reference when it comes to photoshopping.
just sharing it out.
