    I good way is just to experiment with stuff, but when making web templates just don't clutter it with crap try to make it simple and sexy. And you could look at tutorials to get some ideas of what it should look like and then eventually build on it adding your own style.

    you should start with PS then move on to illustrator or others

    but just experiment bro and then you'll eventually get the hang of it

    I would say that to have a successful career in the graphics industry, one needs to have the passion in designing and a creative mind.
    The graphics tool should be used to accomplish the creativity you have, not the other way around (designing just becoz the particular graphic tool offers a specific feature).

    Gain the requisite knowledge of using the tools thru books/ online tutorials and practice well. You'd learn more from your mistakes...

    Good luck in your endeavors!

    Well to learn graphics the first step is to start from the basic tutorials. There are tons and tons of tutorials found on the internet on whatever you want to learn. So try those sites like tutorialized.com and start from the basic, experiment a lot and one day you will become a pro.
