Any good tuitorials for Corel paint shop pro?

...I am happy so far with the program but I cannot figure out how to use layers as I am computer challenged for the most part!

I think there might have been a turorial with the program, but if you need to use layers, then I would suggest that if you look at any photoshop technique using layers, this will translate almost directly into PSP

I started with corel and was almost entirely self taught. As I progressed I found that there weren't many books or online tutorials that covered what I wanted to learn. So earlier this year I made the jump to CS4. There is a world of difference as to the resources available to you.

Online videos, tutorials and the best thing I have found are actions that you can download directly to CS4. Think of them as tutorials that you don't have to pay attention to. Just hit play and someone else does the work for you.

Of course the fun is taking them apart and learning how to do what they did and tweaking it. But being lazy can be fun too.

X2 Ultimate

Combined into the supplied disc, is a set of teaching screen type instructions. I am sure you have seen the type, where a video of the screen is shown and a voice says what is happening and the cursor mores to show you the commands etc. I have only glimpsed at them so cannot comment as whether they contain info on Layers.

As an addition I bought 'Ken McMahon' P.S.P. Photo X2 for Photographers, this does contain a section on Layers.
