Hello everyone I will warn you now my spelling and punctuation is not to good at times. I am looking to get into learning Adobe Photoshop and I remember browsing minitokyo when I frequented the forums on animepaper.net which has been shutdown for sometime and some years. I know your not supposed to advertise for outside sites usually in forums so I will apologize for that. Anyway as I said I am looking to learn Adobe Photoshop and I am hoping to find the friends, guidance, and help to do just that with the members of Minitokyo. Introductions I am not so good at since I kind of start repeating myself a bit as evident in this introduction so thank you for reading and I hope to see you around.

What's that spooty, spoothead, spoot guy, king of the spoots doing here?

A Warm greeting to you! it's totally okay for having typos, not all of us have English as mother tongue .
Yes. AP has been down from a couple of years by now.
As you said you want to learn Photoshop. So I wonder what exactly you want to learn in it? you know Photoshop is an multi speciality software. From editing to manipulation to creating and designing, we can do hell lots of stuff in it.
I can help you with Photoshop, since I'm used to it pretty much. But I have limited amount of knowledge in certain areas of PS. But either way I can help you to get it started! :D
So, you can tell us what exactly you want to learn or do you know basics of PS? interface, tools, layer concept etc?

Plus here a forum with pretty nice PS tutorials (some sites may he off-line by now though) forum.minitokyo.net/t1

As the Light begins to intensify, so does my misery,
and I wonder how it is possible to hurt so much when nothing is wrong.

Thank you but unfortunately English is my mother tongue.

I always figured creating a Wallpapers for your computer kind of filled all those areas of PS you have listed.
I figured the best way to learn would be to start creating high quality basic wallpapers then branch out from there.
As for what I know of Photoshop not to much it has been years since I have looked at a program even remotely like it and even when I did it was not pretty.

So as for what I want to learn I guess it would be good to say the basics, tools, layer concept, and etc...
I always found looking stuff up on youtube PS tutorial wise a little overwhelming so many videos as you said it is a multi specialty program.
I am looking for the thread you posted a link for since it is not clickable or able to be copied and pasted.

Hey and welcome to MT!

As for your post and all things PS and wallpaper related, I suppose it depends on how much you already know about PS and what tools you can use. Wallpapers can also feature a multitude of things/styles like vectoring, vexeling, painting, typography, simple scan extraction, manipulation and blending or a variation of all those things really.

For starters, I would suggest to check these threads here to get you started:

PS Tutorial Sites (but, as Monu already said, this thread was started ages ago so it's possible some or most of them had already shut down).

Wallpaper Guide by one of the Wall Mods, Valuna.

Anime Wallpaper Creation - a basic guide by Tsunoh, one of the wallers here.

You can also check my two tutorials if you like: Walling Tutorial and Basic Lighting Tutorial.

And of course, if you've already created something and want an honest opinion/help from fellow wallers here, we always encourage new members/wallers to post in the Sandbox for feedback on their works.

As for walling itself, I suppose it's an individual thing - some people vector, some paint, some combine various styles etc. Start with something simple but not too simple lol and see where it gets you and what you're good at.

And also if you're really new to Photoshop, I would suggest to start making signature and avatars as starters, they'll help you to let you know some basic tools and layers of Photoshop. They're small, less time consuming and really fun to make. Once you've got hang of making them. Try learning how to "extract" image part/characters from scans/vectors (from indy art and scan section) provided here. Polygonal lasso tool is a great way to extract them. And if you have at least 2 hours a day time for learning you can also try using "Pentool" of Photoshop. It's one of best tool in PS just need practice to love it <3
I'm in college at the moment. So when I'll arrive home in evening I'll link you a really awesome article/tutorial for "Blending Modes" of Photoshop. They're important as well.
