I love your last poster. By the way, why the chinese ideograms ? Are you from China ? Unless they are Japanese graphics ? or simly artist's freedom ? Nevertheless, I find it really impressive. As well as your signature, i find it nice.
They are chinese and Im American to be more specific I am from Texas
Its Artist freedom
And I am glad you like my Sig I am going to redo it soon
But again thank you for the compliment

The first thing of course is to make sure your layers window is open. You can do this bye Going to the Windows drop down menu at the top of the screen.
Now once you have the Menu Open find the Layer Buttons and click it.
Make sure there is a Check Box next to "Layers"
Now you should see the Layers Control Window on your screen It should look something like this
Lets step through the basic tools.
Once you have mastered these the other buttons will be easy to figure out.
Button #1: The Trash Can
This button Of course allows you to remove a Given Layer or Selected layer. You may also Drag layers to this button to trash them. It works alot like the Recycle Ben In Windows.
Button #2: The Copy or NEw Layer Button. If you have a Layer Selected and click this button it will copy that layer. The new layer will be placed directly above the original.
If you click this button with no layer selected it will simply create a new blank Layer
Button #3: THe Set Button: This button is for Organizing your Image. The photoshop Layers can become quiet complicated. By grouping Layers into Sets you keep thing managable. Its like organizing files in your computer. If you throw them all in one folder you would never find what you need. This way you can make several devisions in the image. Say you have a image with multiple parts. You can seperate the layers bye parts.
This button is one of the most valuable buttons.
Ok thats it for the buttons. There are others but you will learn those for your self once you have figured these out.
I am only giving you the basics as to not fry your brain.
My first mistake in useing photoshop was trying to learn to much of it at once. just got me all confused.
The Next and last thing is the Layer Options Menu
If you double click on a Layer. You will find a new and fun way of editing your images.
In the Layer Options you can add things such as a Bevel or drop shadow or glow. You can also add a texture or overlay color.
On the left side you will see a list of things you can do to that Layer. Now remember what ever you do will only take effect on the layer you have selected.
Once you select a option the controls for that option will appear on the right side. In this area You will find tons of funn things. My method was to jsut play with the controls and have some fun see what you can do.
The easiest way is to make a basic shape on your image and see what you can do to it with the options.
Combine them you can use more than one layer option.
Don't be shy.
The Layers are very helpful as you can re arrange them. or make one dissapear there are many things that this would allow you to do once you learn it.
If you have any questions for more specific features or help on useing those features please ask i will post a walkthrough on that and answer your questions.
I hope this helped some of you so enjoy.

Select the brush tool on your tool bar
If you notice when you selected the brush tool the tool bar across the top of the screen changed. Click on the Down arrow Beside the brush size indicator.
A drop down menu will appear
On this Menu you can Change the size of your brush
and select different brushes in your current set.
Now look to the top right of the drop down. There you will find a arrow button facing the right. "Click it"
Your brush set seletion menu will appear
From this menu you can select one of the brush sets installed on the computer.
The brush sets are the items at the bottum of the menu.
Once you have selected a set you will be promtped
"do you wish to replace, Amend, or cancel"
If you replace the brush set you have selected will be displayed and you will be able to use it.
If you select amend it will add the set you selected to the current set being used. " This is not perminent"
And of course if you cancel it wont do anything.
If you look you will find that this menu also gives the option of changing how your brushes are displayed in preview form.
To install Brushes you must place the files once unzipped;
