Online Photoshop tutorials and digital imaging discussions

I’ve found the following online tutorials enormously useful in learning some of the basics of Photoshop, as well as some more sophisticated techniques:

Adobe TV Learn Photoshop CS5 covers many of the basics

Julieanne Kost’s Blog has tons of tips and tricks relating to Photoshop and Lightroom

Mark Johnson has an extensive series of free video tutorials on his Photoshop Workbench

Glenn Mitchell of The Light’s Right has lots of excellent in-depth tutorials available as free PDF downloads, including this superb overview of digital dodging (selective lightening) and burning (selective darkening) techniques:

Tony Kuyper also has a series of excellent tutorials on more sophisticated Photoshop techniques such as luminance masking (which allows highly selective dodging and burning of particular tonal ranges within an image)

I have appreciate the accumulated wisdom and experience available in the searchable discussion archive of the Photoshop Users Support Group an Flickr:

as well as the Digital Photography Review forum on software and retouching

and PhotoNet’s forum on digital darkroom issues
