I'm a HUGE fan of NAPP — the National Association of Photoshop Professionals. I joined NAPP back in 2004 after attending two of NAPP's Photoshop Seminars. I've been with them ever since! The benefits are well worth the minimal $99 a year cost! You get Photoshop User magazine, a members only online community, discounts on tons of equipment, software and training, access to an online portfolio and even Photoshop tech support!!
Whether you're a designer or a photographer NAPP is a great choice! I know where to go when I have a Photoshop question and need an answer quickly. So if you've thought about joining, you definitely need to. If you've never heard of NAPP be sure to check them out!
