Hi everyone. I want to learn more about using RAW and post processing. I occasionally adjust jpgs and enjoy it but feel like I am stumbling about and only using about 10% of what is available (at most). I am hoping to put on a exhibition in the next 12 months too...

I currently use aperture 3 but wondering about moving to Lightroom at some point. Either way some pointers as to resources would be helpful. Thanks!

Get a subscriptionto KelbyOne or Lynda.com

Video tutorials are great.

Also, for free, check out Bert Monroy's show on Revision3.com called Pixel Perfect.

Also, I can confirm Lynda.com has some great stuff. My employer has a corporate agreement of some sort that lets me log in and use the materials at no cost, so I can't speak to the value proposition, but there is a lot of in-depth PhotoShop information. I've started watching strobist's travel photography course, really like that guy ever since I watched him on DigitalRev.

I found Cambridge in Colour really useful, great free tutorials to demystify image processing:

For me it boils down to "make the white actually white, then make the black actually black" - everything after that's just fiddling!
EDIT - apart from lightroom's highlight slider, which is witchcraft ;)

Another suggestion, find a local camera club? There's a load of stuff near me (London) on www.meetup.com, not sure how local it'll go for you but maybe worth a look.

Also try www.talkphotography.com for a very UK strong forum, they'll be good for a local club recommendation.
