How to create configurable products easily?

I’m unclear on how Magento handles things like, color and size for a product.
Like everyone else I want to be able to offer a t-shirt in different sizes and colors but I don’t see how this is done without making lots of different
products rather than just having a simple dropdown that says blue and xl.

I am working through the tutorial but it seems a bit confusing, also is it not possible to apply attributes to existing products?
Also but not least how do you create an attribute that changes the products price (like an xxl t-shirt adds $3.00)

I thought there was an extension for this but can’t seem to find it.
Any help is appreciated.

Guess it’s a bit of a noob question?
