I work in Photoshop, and know the program really, really well. I like how Painter looks, and the work I see people do, but when I get in there, the tools and pallets are just different enough that I don't know where some of my favorite ones are, or if painter even has them, and I know there are a lot of utilities and options there that are unique to that program that I don't even know about.
My assignments are usually on really tight deadlines, and outside of that, my personal workload is really huge, so I can't really dive in and learn by trial and error like most people. I need something quick, concise, and related to my field.
in the education and learning section there is a painter help and feedback section. as far as i know there are similar threads posted, you'll probably find what you are looking for there.
no problem.. i was pretty clueless when i joined up too. no worries.
