While browsing through the WordPress forums, I came across a very nice site suggested by notthatugly (I dont know if notthatugly is the owner or not) but it deserves a mention on here. Web Design Tutorials has well written, lucid, versatile tutorials covering a variety of subjects, including
Paint Shop Pro
And has a download section which includes
Templates: Buttons & Avatars
Most of the stuff on there is very high class and is centered around code (which makes it a source for blog-friendly web design help) Thank them profusely if you use anything from on there.
