    Theres a lot to learn in Photoshop, but stick with it and it will be worth it. The problem is that there are just so many actions, filters and effects that you can easily become disillusioned.

    I guess it all depends on where you are in your learning, I mean can you use and understand all of the preset tools in your palette or are you further along and understand and use masks for example.

    Perhaps you could explain or even show some work and we could help you out.

    If you really want to go crazy with Photoshop then I would thoroughly learn layers, masking and blending modes.

    Probably the best way is to watch Youtube videos about different effects and then use those skills you learned and play around in PS to get the hang of things. That's how I learned what I know. Trial and error!

    Photoshop is very advantageous for beginners and it is the best and easy tool to start because people will have fun while working with it. The best way to gain a good grip on Photoshop, the newbie has to watch the actions made by Photoshop expert and has to observe thoroughly in to the steps and analyse those steps that what he used in creating it. Analyse the things like which tool and effects he has used to bring out a good result. By this newbies can able to do their own Photoshop Actions.

    Whereas, You are a newbie in Ps. So you should learn first its basic. The following skills you should know them first.
    1. Interface and Layout. 2. Idea about Working Space. 3. Know about tools. 4. Layers. 5. Layer Styles. 6.Blending Modes. 7. Automatic Image Adjustments. 8. About Curves. 9. Resizing & Cropping Images.
    10. File Saving

    As my creative experience, I always prefer to use Pen Tool. Because it is one of the best tool in my creative career. You can learn about this tool following these...here and here

    Skills like first you have to work with it everyday, though it's not easy to learn but practice can make it easier, but something can be skillful like:
    toolbox
    layers
    filters
    layer design in PS
    retouching tool
    these are some works if you can work with these or practise with these it can be make you master of photoshop. It can be happen if you practise everyday because practise makes the work maximum perfect. so let's do it.

    I watch Youtube videos. Play around with stock photos and graphics that I got off Google images. If you plan on using the images that you tweak in PS, be sure to use the filter usage under tools.
