What are some good programs to start with for editing. I'm guessing I will be using PS for the covers and fliers. If you have any good videos tutorials please link.

You shouldn't assume that you can just design from the get go. Learn about design from the ground up, don't just throw shit together with some tutorials.

You should have an idea of what you want to make in your head way before you whack open Photoshop. Sketching is a good way to get an idea mapped out, so for example you'd have an actual pad with a pencil/pen and you'd just fill it with little sketches.

It doesn't matter how many of them are shit, because you're basically supposed to fill it to take all the ideas on your head and put them into something you can look at and criticise properly.

You can look at a website like http://www.be.net (Behance) for some inspiration as there are a lot of artists on there and the way it organises popular/viewed stuff shows you some really high quality shit.

Don't try to skip the fundamentals is my advice, as anyone worth their salt will see the cheapness in your stuff.

I got you and thanks for the advice. Will start with some idea brainstorming.
