As you might know, i'm still quite a n00b in photoshop.

I always see that 'Channel' tab there next to the Layers tab, but i just can't figur out what the Channels can do/what the effects are that i can reach with it.

Can someon give me a clear explanation of what 'Channels' represent, and what effects i maybe could get with it?

//Sorry for my bad English.

found it (the krause tut's):

http://teched.vt.edu/gcc/HTML/VirtualTextbook/VirtualTutorials/VTKaiPT.html

go there and look for the "secrets of chops". there are several parts. of course study the other tips as well, they are really cool for learning to handle channel-stuff (they are quite a bit old, but that doesn't matter)

hope to helped you out a little bit with that,
