Also,
How long does it take untill I would be able to actually get a job and work for a studio?
Thanks

I have a 2014 Mac mini 16gb ram and 250ssd

It's going to take a while... but that depends on where you live and your own natural skill for it. Just keep playing with it and exploring.

Thank you, I catch on quick with anything with computers. I was never really interested in Adobe and I've only really used Corel draw but now I am. Would a Mac mini be good enough to at least "learn" Adobe before I actually start doing work?
Thanks!

I have no clue what a Mac Mini can do, I've always worked on a windows rig I built myself, but it might do okay as long as you don't overheat it or make files that are too large with too many layers. I've maxed out 16GB of RAM before working on images, it was fun but annoying as hell as all changes took forever to happen.

Ok, sometimes a PC is cheeper and you get more but, the security and reliability is awful, I think I would get a PC for only using Adobe with it but I really prefer Macs now, ultamatly I just need a better graphics card for in the future but, I'm not sure yet

I never said that a PC is better than the Mac, I was stating that I've never used a Mac for anything. You will be limited with a Mac on what you can upgrade though... esp. the Mac Mini, I doubt you can put a GPU in that, if I recall properly, they run off of an iGPU and have no room for expansion.

Yea I can't add anything other then get a external chassis for a thunderbolt connected external graphics card, but, I heard that isn't really reliable or it can overheat the connection. I was looking at a dell desktop but, again I like appe allot more now, I wish apple would give people more for their money tho

What do you want to do with photoshop? Graphic design? Photo editing?

Graphic design and photography both require quite a few skills outside of the software. Understanding color, shadow and light are the foundations of both.
