What's the best way to learn Photoshop at home. Any recommendations on books, videos or websites. Currently reading Tony/Chelsea's Lightroom book and love it. Finally challaged myself to learn Lightroom and Photoshop

Thanks
Scott

My case may not very typical because I started with Photoshop Elements 11 to 13 and, at that stage, I found Scott Kelby's book on PSE extremely helpful. Then I simply had to make the transition to the full Photoshop. My experience is that, if I go to YouTube and search a specific topic (e.g. Photoshop Clone Stamp), I am likely to find several video tutorials. Adobe also provides numerous Photoshop tutorials.

Yep YouTube will have plenty of video's some in depth and some to just get you by . But theirs plenty if you want the visual route.

I would be surprised if Scott Kelby doesn't have a book on Photoshop because he has a magazine on Photoshop and has founded the National Ssociation of Photoshop Professionals. He also provides online training.

I found Anthony Morganti's vids on youtube to be good.  He has Photoshop and Lightroom stuff.

His approach and personality suits my learning style.
