Self taught... if utilising the forums and anything you find on Google and Adobe's help files/forums as self-taught. There's a wealth of information out there... Once I get more time I might look into some of the recommended books here but in the meantime Google will have to do :D

At first, it was trial and error. Then I started thinking about my photography itself and slowly learn that to have something worth PP'in is to spend more time composing the shot.

Then I started comparing my work to other people and realised that my work had more potential. I sat and then read about how to use a workflow effectively and I guess thats about it.

Most has been self taught and the inspiration, well POTN of course. :)

Self Taught starting with Kelby's books. Then joined NAPP and took advantage of their online tutorials and in person seminars.

1000's of hours in Photoshop, starting with 3.0. I have also read quite a few tutorials but mostly that is if I am looking for an answer to a PP issue I can not figure out. Oh, I did buy 2 of the Photoshop 'WOW' books from Peach Pit Press - but that was many years ago. :P

Oh yes, the US military has graphic illustrators.

Self-taught through tutorials and just playing around. You can learn so much by just "letting loose".

I started with PS when I bought my first Mac back in college in 1995ish, but used it mostly for design. When I got more interested in editing images I spent some time experimenting with more of the photo specific capabilities and later I joined lynda.com for a few months to round out knowledge on things specific to digital photography like correctly using filters and mostly color correction. That was well worth the money, IMO.

Trial and error at first, and then once I understood more and more of the terminology I started to Google things that I heard about and saw on Ps that I didn't understand - like Layer Masks, etc...

Mostly self taught, with more than a little help from the internet. And of course asking questions here on POTN. Tons of good help out there. Trial and error has gotten me more than a few results really like too.
