A little advice before you start to learn Photoshop
Photoshop is a great and big program. But don’t let the amount of features in it fool you. The best way to use software like it is to take the simplest approach in doing things. Many people fall into the habit of trying to create complicated designs and use tons of tool trying to do that. And they end up creating things they are not proud of. And who said all these sophisticated arts you saw online were done that way? Many of them were made by combining many of the simplest techniques to create a simple & lovely design.
