Tutorials online are what I would suggest as well. From my (short) experience with design books, I have only seen ones that have tutorials.

open photoshop, or a free 'alternative'

try blending different pics together to form your own image.

work at pixel level if necessary, smoothing over any artifacts. get a real feel for what youre creating.

mess around with 'brushes', 'filters' and 'adjustments' such as hue, tone, gamma & offset.

have fun!!
