I did the lynda.com free month demo, and liked it a lot. I almost signed up
for a few months, but I signed up for kelbytraining.com instead. It's much
more Adobe-centric, but I'm a member of the Nationall Association of
Photoshop Professionals (NAPP). There was already a discount for NAPP
members, but last month they took another $20 off the annual subscription,
so it was much cheaper than lynda.com's stuff.
Lynda.com's offerings are wider-ranging, including some programming stuff.
