There is a great set of Photoshop tutorials over at dennisplucinik.com that is probably worth a bookmark. I stumbled onto this little gem of a collection somehow and found a lot of the information very useful, if not now, maybe in the future. The tutorials are categories and include movie effects, photo manipulation, vector effects, digital coloring, and more. If you aren’t very advanced at Photoshop at this point, all the more reason to bookmark it and come back later.
You can find some nice free icon sets from DryIcons.com, the icons are carefully designed and developed by a team of professional web and graphic designers. They designed the DryIcons website to bring your applications the best professional appearance. All of their icon sets contain icons commonly available in 16×16, 24×24, 32×32, 48×48 pixel 32-bit transparency PNG format and 128×128 pixel Photoshop’s PSD image format.
