Starting with Photoshop is pretty much like learning to drive a car. In the beginning, you are scared of the number of buttons, commands and tools. After learning the first instruments, fear goes away, but you start to get confused with them. When you get used to settings, here is the next question: "And what tool to apply to this particular picture?"
