Check YouTube and use search function here. It would take too long to type it all out. Do a lot of reading, and you can sharpen anything.

THis You Tube is a basic one. At the ends of this one there will be more choices in thumbnails. Just click on the next one and so on.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
