    Hello,

    I don't know if you can learn graphics designing by following any tutorials. In my opinion, graphics designing is recreating your vision with computer. You need inspiration and ideas, and you can get those by following the tutorials, though, there are many better ways to do so. In example, if you like doing nature-like graphics, go outside or use google.com to search for ideas.

    But, to recreate your vision as you see it in your head, you need to know how to do that. That's where the tutorials really come in. Depending of your choice of program, you need to learn how to use that. I assume that you are using photoshop, so you might want to check these sites:

    http://www.photoshopstar.com/
    http://www.photoshopessentials.com/
    http://psd.tutsplus.com/

    If you have something to ask or if you cannot find a tutorial that answers your questions; please ask. Internet is full of people who want to share their wisdom regarding your problems.

    Those links that I provided are just a bunch of all of those websites which has photoshop tutorials in them. Like I said before, google helps a lot. ;)

    Cheers!

    YouTube.com, search for simple graphic design tutorials first.

    Definitely Youtube. You can search for the software you're using too... "Photoshop for beginners" or something.

    I think the best way to learn is the actual practice.
    Watch some youtube, maybe hire a designer to Teamview/ Sit in with you.
    Thats a great way to start.
