I need to speed up my post processing.

Has anybody used any of these online training sites like kelbytraining.com or lynda.com for photoshop?

I use CS4 all day long, and I've used both training sites from time to time. They're both good. Photoshop can be as complicated as you want. You can never learn it all, because there are usually ten ways to achieve the same result. You just have to experiment, and find out which one works best for you. The more you use it, the faster your work flow will become. I'm always surprised when I learn a new trick, after I thought there wasn't much else I could learn. And then, Adobe upgrades the next version, and there is even more to learn.

I got a bunch of training videos free when I purchased photoshop last time and they were mostly from lynda.com  I was quite impressed with them, so wouldn't have a problem recommending them.

These guy are pretty good.  I like the fact that they don't skip steps like some other people do as they just assume you know that short cut.

yeah, some good suggestions.  Free tutorials shouldn't be overlooked.  I watched lots of tutcast's tutorials on illustrator and learned quite a bit.

I use Kelby a lot. Sign up for a month and get as much as you can out of it. Worth $20 easily if you can devote the time.  Has a lot of training besides Photoshop. First 3-4 lessons in each video free.

This is going to sound very non-serious but Youtube.  Search Photoshop Tutorial on youtube and you'll get more results than you know what to do with.  Watch some and you'll get an idea who is good to follow.

Can you actually just buy a month or does it autobill your credit card where you need to cancel it?

All good info thanks everybody.

It autobills and you have to actually cancel it.  I just joined last week and have to say that I am loving it.  I am a completely newbie to Photoshop, just doing the basic course now.  But the guy giving it is a great for people that don't know anything, or at least I think so.

I did 2 courses last week that were general intros to digital photography, basic, but yet now so much -- because the guy giving the trainings was a veteran travel photographer and his stories and tips were great.   So far, for my $19.99  I feel like this is great -- and I look forward to getting through more classes.

I was considered Linda, but thought that I would try this one first since it is completely geared towards photographers.

yes , i was going to say that too. adelphis from here has a few helpful ones on youtube.
also if you're with 123rf their newsletters are full of PS lessons. some really very advanced ones which i found cuts down my PS time by lots of hours trying to learn it yourself. a good one for newbies and advanced users.
