Photoshop is the tool and Adobe TV is one very good place for free videos.

There is also the Adobe Design Center which is worth a visit.

Dave Hill has some behind the scenes videos on his website. It doesn't teach you the techniques, but you get short glimpses of his retouch assistants showing the techiniques. There's also a video of his posted on strobist.com that shows how he layers images. Neither teach specific techniques, but they are awesome for really getting an understanding of the concepts behind compositing.

I found "Creative Photoshop with John Reutter" on I tunes podcasts to be extremely useful in learning photocompositing.. The info is for older versions of photoshop but the basic info on technique is relevant. I have also found Deke McClelland's photoshop tutorials to be helpful in learning the tools available. Deke's 101 photoshop tips in 5 minutes is one of the funniest, and maybe the only, photoshop rap song.

I hope this helps.

Learn the rules, then learn how to break them, and how to forget them.
You will be on your way to your visual self.

Of course I'll recommend my own article on the subject.
There was a great discussion following my article on the forums over at CIC

Here are 5 steps to learning good composition. Follow them, and you'll learn a lot.

1. Study different techniques to composing a picture.
2. Look for ways in which you and other people follow those rules.
3. Take lots of pictures.
4. critiquing the composition of your pictures.
5. Take more pictures. Practice makes perfect.
