    From my own experience, the best way to learn is to practice and mess around with all the different features.

    However, if you are looking for some good tutorials, I recommend Pixel2Life.

    Follow tutorials, search google for them, Pixel2life is good, but their are some other good websites around too. It's hard to say where to start, it depends what you're into really. Photo Manipulation? Vector Art? It all varies.

    It doesn't matter really, since you're new it wouldn't matter since you won't be doing advanced stuff yet.

    Have you ever do anything "big"?

    I never followed tutorials, ever. Actually, no I lie, I followed some small ones to get an effect perfect, but most of the time I'd already figured it out.

    Websites with tutorials and just messing around with the program would definately be the best way
