In Photoshop 6, if you have several extracted layers and you need to marquee just the item, hit the ctrl button and click on the layer. The item will automatically be selected. (Saves all that magic wanding the clear space and inversing!)

Does anyone have a specific request on how to do something? I have learned quite a bit but there is still plenty to learn. If anyone has a specific question on how I have done something I am willing to share!

Hi debozark - when I try to make brushes, especially with gradients they turn out semi-transparent and the back ground shows through, any ideas how to made them 'solid'. I was trying to make a brush that looked like a bead. I tried merging it with a white copy but that didn't work. I'd love some advice if you've any ideas - Shannonsnan

Two of my favourite sites for tuts are
www.peachpit.com and
I've learnt heaps from both.
One of my most used kepboard shortcuts is
Alt +backspace : This fills current layer/selection with foreground colour

i'm bipolar so very hard for me to follow tutorials, i get agitated or sleepy. so i just experiment. play around with filters, effects and blending options. re effects, i play with gradient overlays and gradient maps a lot. don't be afraid to be adventurous, afterall you can always undo. the very first and most basic things i've learned about photoshop:
1) do things in different layers. so for example, if you're painting a face. put the nose on one layer, the eyes on another, etc.
2) where is the eraser? (the first question i called a friend to ask when i first opened photoshop)
3) how do you undo things (the 2nd question i asked *lol*). "control-alt-delete" remains one of my favorite commands.

Instead of using the eraser I use a layer mask. I find this more adaptable as you are not actually erasing the main photo layer and I find it more accurate.
