Digital is so much fun! I think you'll be addicted in no time!
I have to say, having used PSE and PS, that I think a good place to start is Photoshop Elements. We actually have classes here online to teach you! You can check them out HERE
There are also tutorials and things that can be found HERE
...you can see that the first section is "getting started."
Also, with regards to printing, there are many places online that you can have them printed, including our printing services HERE
Don't be afraid to ask any question, big or small, in the forum! There's always someone around who's happy to try and answer it for you!
It's wonderful to have you here, and I'm looking forward to seeing your pages in the gallery!
