Only you can know what is best for you as we have no idea what you do know already.

It seems to me that development and design are very different. Design gets me excited. Development I'm just beginning on, and although interesting, it's like trying to build a house with a million, intricately placed, toothpicks. Does seem like one needs to learn both so I'm stubbornly going to keep at it.

Too bad there isn't a place for someone to just make graphics to spec that developers can then use.

To my mind, development is the key for you. Design will make you better but without development - there is nothing to design.

Good Luck!

I went to school for design. I have a degree in it. You can teach yourself design it will just take more time. Read a few books. Get a book on grid systems, typography, learn about hierarchy and learn some basic rules of design.

As for tutorials, there is always a new version of the Adobe Suite coming out and it can be hard to keep up but http://www.lynda.com always has lots of great video tutorials. You have to pay for it but they are the best out there.
