    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!

    • Beverley Haywood

    Having had photoshop sitting on my screen for over a year but not knowing how to use it this course has helped me immensely. Great teaching style with lots of detailed skills - recommended!
