  • Keli Rae
    holy toledo, BatMan! Robust course.

    Thank you for offering this great guide to Photoshop--I've been nothing but slow and inefficient until now.

  • Robert Horowitz
    Great Course for Beginners

    The instructor's passion for the subject matter really shows through.

  • Daniel
    Hi there

    I came on Udemy looking for a course on how to learn and get a better understanding of Photoshop CS5. What I didn't know I was getting was an amazing teacher to teach it, and a really brilliant step by step understanding of what Adobe Photoshop is and how to use it. If you are looking for a course in Adobe Photoshop then I can not recommend anyone better than Andy "by Infinite Skills" Also a great big thank Andy from me!

  • Al Amezquita
    Adobe Photoshope CS5 for Biginners

    Very informative. I have Adobe Photo CS4, but this course is still works for my needs.

  • Kraig Spear
    The future of learning

    The idea of getting this much information through a book is scary. For a reasonable price someone without Photoshop experience can get the basics and beyond in the shortest time possible. Just looking at this course gives an idea on just how much material someone needs to be somewhat effective. It's presented here in an excellent way that is very helpful. Thanks Andy...
