I'm only using a 3rd of my photoshop's capabilities at best because Adobie's help files lead me in circles

very helpful and informative! thanks for taking the time to make this! I know my way around Photoshop alright, but there's still a few features I'm not familiar with, or I saw in the trial version of CS5 and didn't get figured out in time ^^; this is a very helpful resource!
