Introducing: How Do I Photoshop?

I'd like to introduce you to a new series I thought up this afternoon while studying for a quiz on hurricanes. I'm calling it "How Do I Photoshop?", and with it, I hope to share some tips and tricks I've picked up throughout the years.

As a self-taught Photoshop user, there are a lot of things I've missed. Some are painfully obvious, others are just...things I wouldn't know. And there is the adage that there are no stupid questions, because someone else has the same question as you.

In that spirit, if you have any Photoshop questions, things you just can't figure out, feel free to drop them in this post, or any future posts. I'll be happy to answer to the best of my ability.

Anyhow, I've got my first one to work on, so expect to see that within the next couple hours.
