Terry White is an Adobe Photoshop expert and in this video he answers the 10 things that Photoshop (particularly for Photoshop CC) beginners want to know how to do including:

  1. How to touch up a photo; how to make people look better
  2. Layers and adjustment layers; what are they and how to use them
  3. Working with layer masks
  4. How to crop a photo
  5. Adjusting the exposure and using the Adobe Camera Raw filter
  6. Removing something from an image
  7. Move or copy objects in a photo
  8. How to put a person from one photo onto a new background (or putting two photos together)
  9. How to add text

It’s a bit of a long one but some really good tips in here that I’m sure you’ll find helpful if you’re new to Photoshop.

He also mentioned grabbing a Wacom tablet to use for your editing instead of a mouse. I use one in Lightroom as well and it is much better and more precise and doesn’t leave you with a cramped hand after working on images for hours.
