Practice, practice, and more practice on real images.

Actually, this site is pretty good:

Adobe CS5 - Everything about Adobe Creative Suite 5

Re: Best place to find new features in Photoshop

thanks Noel, well for example, Ben's point pointed out my favorite features, with Brush tool for CS4, incresing size from keyboard -- not sure I would have ever known about that otherwise right? Where else was that posted?

For what it's worth, I only recently discovered that feature myself (using the [ and ] keys to change brush size), though apparently it's been around a while. I think it was the CS4 promotional videos that made me aware of it.

There's a lot to be said for watching videos of other people using Photoshop.

Re: Best place to find new features in Photoshop

thanks Noel, so you see what I'm talking about. Pity that Ben's not doing the book. it was the only source that uncovered every rock. So those video in you link are the promos you are talking about...

Re: Best place to find new features in Photoshop

Guys, the brush bracket trick (which also works in Lightroom) has been around at least half a dozen versions. You guys need to get out less often ;-).

Look, best place to get tips for no money is anything by Julieanne Kost of Adobe. She’s darn cute too:

VERY well put.

In all seriousness, Photoshop has so many different ways to accomplish things that one can go a lifetime without using half the stuff there. Hell, I develop for the thing and I still keep discovering new stuff.
