Photoshop 101

I am a creative wannabe (I have no natural talent) but I really like to do creative things. I really want to start taking pictures of my babies so I decided to start learning photoshop. It is harder than the tutorials make it out to be so here is my first photoshop experience.
Here is the original picture. Rose (6 months in this pic) is looking very cute but as you can see, the floor is terrible, A's feet and the table legs are in the background. Well, after experimenting a little, this is what I ended up with. I could work on it forever but I decided I needed to move on so here is the next pic I worked on...
I didn't get very far :) Hopefully after a few more tutorials and more practice, photoshop will not seem as intimidating. I would appreciate any advice from all of you photoshop junkies.

Are you kidding me?! Those are awesome! I get so frustrated with Photoshop. I settle for the actions I find on Coffeeshop. So nice work! Keep it up girlfriend!

I am a creative wannabe as well. :) I am not a photoshop junkie, but I wish I was. Did you just buy photoshop and the tutorials come with it or are they somewhere else? As you can see I have no idea. You did a great job by the way!

Awesome! Much cuter. I've had Photoshop installed for a while but it still is untouched. What are you using to learn?
