Congratulations, you've now mastered the essentials of Photoshop. If I could give you one more little piece of advice, now that you've gotten the basics down, I would give yourself a project to do that you would find fun and challenging. I find that self assignments can be the best way to explore new techniques and new technologies and they help you practice your foundations. One of the great things about lynda.com is that so many authors have their own unique voices. I'm sure that when you're ready to move forward you'll find exactly what you're looking for. For example if you want more advanced information on photography check out Chris Orwig's titles, and don't miss Deke McClelland's videos with tons of helpful Photoshop tips and tricks. Of course these are just a few examples.
I hope you'll come back often and learn a new Photoshop skill every week and if there's a subject that we've missed please let us know by submitting a course request. I hope to see you elsewhere as you continue your online training experience. If you'd like to keep track of what I'm up to please feel free to follow me on my blog at blogs.adobe.com/jkost.
