Photoshop tutorials...?

Do anybody know of an really good video tutorials for photoshop and possible illustrator? Like videocopilot.net is REALLY good for After Effects... so i was wondering if there was any REALLY good tutorials for the other adobe products. Thank you

Here's some blogs you might want to take a look at. I check these every day but they don't all update every day.

addition, this is a collection of links that I've bookmarked over the past 9 months or so. Not all of these are video tutorials but hopefully you'll find something that will help.

Since Yahoo only allows 10 links per answer these won't have the http in front of them.

Hopefully you'll find something in that mess that will help you out.

Feel free to hit me up with any questions that you have as

Adobe Illustrator Effects won't work?

I want to apply a stained glass effect, but in the drop-down menu for effects, most of the options are grey and unclickable.. is there something i need to do in order for these options to work?

Check type of effect you are applying
and check which object you are applying to,

some are for bitmap.and some work only on one object,
if you have set of objects selected, you may have to group , or change properties,
