Youtube is good site for video tutorials just enter something like "Photoshop CS6" as a search term and browse the videos for what you are interested in. Performing a Google search is also a excellent tool for finding tutorials of interest.

Google is also your friend for finding resources such as brushes, textures and gradients.

Yes there is a lot to learn. I learned GIMP, Inkscape, CorelDraw, Blender and Photoshop from YouTube. It is a great resource.

Just start by following along with some tutorials. Just play a bit of the tut and then repeat it in PS. That will get you used to how to work with it. This chap gives clear instructions. Blue Lightning TV - YouTube

I only now notice this thread but I'm more than happy to share what I know

Some good Youtube channels that I frequently visit and that offer a lot of great tutorials are:
Textures, brushes, gradients and such are best found in Google, but some handy (free) sites are:
And if you ever need any fonts, go to DaFont.
If you have an image and want to identify the font used, you can use WhatTheFont or IdentiFont.

Photoshop also uses a lot of shortcuts, take a peep here to see them all (image courtesy of boohbah, originally posted in GFX Team subforum):



Hope this helps
