Very nice tutorial on basic Photoshop features and image editing. Some instructions specific to the UNC environment (e.g., it directs you to look for a specific scanner model on the menu when scanning), but most of it is applicable to a general audience.

Technical Remarks:

Easy to navigate, logical chunking.
Time spent reviewing site: 10 minutes

This is a decent tutorial on how to do the basics of Photoshop, however, it is now very outdated. It was submitted in 2005 and it's now 2009. While many of the tools are the same, there are also a lot of differences that may confuse the user. An update would make it much better.
