Beginner list using Photoshop CS6
If you have upgraded to Photoshop CS6, you will find that there are differences in CS6.

Basic Photo Corrections video lessons
The degree of retouching that is done depends on the image you are working on and the intended outcome. For most images this can be achieved by using Adobe Camera Raw and a few clicks to adjust the image. When you are done with the adjustments go to Photoshop to do some advanced retouching.

Customizing Your Photoshop Work area:

Layers, layer styles, and layer masks have become such an essential component of Photoshop that it’s hard to believe that the early versions of Photoshop didn’t have layers. Today, so much of what you do in Photoshop, you will do on layers.

Go to the first of a series of video -- Lock Transparent Pixels

Apply a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer.
Before adjustment layers, when one wanted to make an adjustment to color, curves, levels, or hue saturation, they couldn’t go back and modify it. They were stuck with it. There were ways to work around the issue, but that’s all they were—work-around. Adjustment layers offer you the ability to make an adjustment and then go back at any time and modify the adjustment. From the designer’s perspective, it’s the difference between being trapped with their choices and being free to experiment.
Adjustment layers are also a record of the adjustments you make. For example, if you are working on a new layer and want to know what color correction you made to a previous layer, all you need to do is check the adjustment layer. In the old days, they used an old-fashioned method to keep track of this information—a pencil and paper!
