PSDTuts+ : Inspiration
First of all, which ever image-editing program you decide to use, you should always stock up on resouces as you go along and as you mature your skills. Simply create a 'Resources' folder and you will save so much time and effort trawling the deepest ends of the internet looking for that one texture.
If you decide to use Photoshop, it has many settings available to you. You can change your performance settings and User Interface settings which can change the colour of everything you work with. (E.g your rulers and so on.) You can also change which windows appear, create and save your own layouts and such. Photoshop comes with the default 'Essentials' Layout setting, but you can adjust this to how you like. Once you have your Photoshop tailored to how you want it, you can work at incredible pace, you will know where all your tools are etc. I really reccomend you take the time one day to simply organise yourself, especially if you decide to take a career in design, as having a smooth workflow is key.
Also you should really learn the shortcuts as you will save a vast amount of time if you know all the shortcuts.
Here's a link to a sheet containing the Shortcuts. (Large + Printable)
(⌘ on the shortcuts means CTRL on Windows OS's)
For actually learning the tools of the trade. PSDTuts+ have an excellent series called, 'Photoshop Basix'. This is a series of videos created by Photoshop master Martin Perhiniak. This goes in detail every aspect of Photoshop for a inexperienced beginner. I definitely reccomend going through this series because your skill will flourish.
Also, just start using the links provoided in the thread, most sites have sections for beginners. Just pick which one you like best! If you ever become stuck, please don't hesitate to post in the 'General GFX Discussion Thread' and one of the users will be glad to help.
