  Here’s what our students are saying…

“For an absolute beginner, the details and instructions were easy to follow. The instructor spoke slowly and gave reasons why or why not he would be using certain features. So far so good.”

– Anne Davidson

“The course was correctly paced and well presented by the instructor, the layer’s section was the area I was most interested in. Although I do not use the Organizer, I have a much better understanding of it now. Overall a very good introduction to PSE 2018 and most of its capabilities, some areas were out of scope for the course, of those not covered I would have liked to see a least a brief tour of in camera raw.”

- Jim Westfall

"Very detailed, and appreciated. It makes it easy to be motivated rather than discouraged for someone that finds this part of photography difficult. Thank you"

- Kristi Yacavace
