I have never been taught to use photoshop, I have no skills in graphic design and the only computer credibility that I have is that I am Gen Y. I am a speech pathologist but I dream of doing something different. Don't get me wrong, I love my job but i'm not sure if its my passion.
I am slowly learning the very basics on photoshop. I have just got a bamboo tablet, which I love and a few other bits and pieces to play with.
I would love to take time off and learn all of this stuff but that is not an option at the moment. For now I will play, experiment and google the basics.
