How did you guys learn how to do it??
they do photoshop classes over here in the community colleges,try all the local colleges,it might be that they haven't had enough interest in it as a course in it's own right,they used to say that about linux courses but now they're a lot easier to find.
There's no major need for photoshop as such,unless are a hardcore graphics designer,or want to work in the design industry,it is an industry standard program and is very complex.
Adobe have a more entry level version designed for home users-called photoshop Elements [though they might have changed it's name now?],sometimes it's given free with things like digital cameras,but it's still a great program.
Am biased so recommend starting with the GIMP [GNU Image Manipulation Program],it's completely free,close to the likes of photoshop and can be downloaded from here: http://www.gimp.org/
