You really need to find a good book to get you going. A quick google will dig up dozens specific to CS5. I bought Scott Kelby's guide to CS4 (cos thats what I use) and found it to be an excellent,very easy to follow guide once you can get past the slightly "chummy" American writing style. His CS5 book is available on Amazon. Here

If you go to YouTube and type in 'Photoshop CS5' you'll find loads of tutorials.

There are quite a few on here too.
You might be best off deciding, initially, what it is that you want to master first. Learning some of the basics is an obvious starting point.

I generally just use the sharpening curves and vibrance but some photos look over saturated but i don't use that function wanting to get good sharp images after editing

You're probably just overdoing it. Subtle adjustments are best.

What sharpening method do you use?
