REVIEWS

  • Robert Getty

    Clear and concise teaching here!

  • Viorel Udma
    Old Photoshop

    The class is based on Photoshop CS3, a version at least 6 years old (next version, CS4, was introduced in 2008). Meanwhile Photoshop evolved and some editing presented can be done faster using newer tools.

  • Darrell Bruggeman
    Well explained

    A good course and a good instructor make this easy to learn. Thanks

  • Jose Acosta
    Really enjoyed this course!

    Very informative and definitely learned new things and I have a better understanding of the software and where things are located I will definitely be checking if you have a tutorial just on Lr.
