We are big fans here of lynda.com for software training and reference. I cannot count the number of times we've struggled with some software problem and easily found the answer we needed by reviewing their online training materials. Highly recommended.
But, I recently found a new use for them. Adobe has this nasty habit of knowing we've got room on our credit cards. They uncannily bring out a new release just about the time I'm feeling better about my account balance. The temptress now dangles CS5 in front of us. Should we drool, or pass it by? Enter lynda.com. Their tutorials are a great way to learn if the new features are fluff or must-haves.
I've just completed a bunch of their tutorials on the various CS5 products that we would use on a regular basis — Photoshop, InDesign, Premiere Pro, Dreamweaver, et al. Yes, we indeed drool. Thanks to lynda.com, at least we drool with knowledge instead of habit. And, when our shipment arrives, I'll be a leg up on jump starting with all those new features.
