While I'm mostly self taught, the book I learned the most from is "Adobe Photoshop CS2 for Photographers" by Martin Evening

That's the book you showed me when I was out to visit, yes?

What do you want to learn to do, and I can come up with a quickie guide.

A number of things, really... off the top of my head, selecting an area and being able to stretch/skew it without affecting the rest of the image.

Use the Magic Wand to select areas by similar color, or use the Select Tool to select a shape, or use the Lasso tool to make a selection by hand. Then, copy this selection, and paste it right away, which will make a new layer. Now you are free to manipulate this part of the image without affecting the image below.

Shouldn't there be an easier way to do it?

I'm getting to the point where my hackery will not stand.

My father took a class & really likes it, but thinks that some things are really cumbersome. He has a book though & I can see if he will lend it to you if you want...

If he can spare it for a couple weeks. I can find my way to one if need be.
