Instructor Biography

Marcin Mikus, Retoucher

I'm open minded and creative Photoshop Instructor and Retoucher. The area I'm interested in is photo retouching and photomanipulation. I believe that massive layers of imagination allows me to create interesting, nontrivial ideas.

I've been teaching Photoshop for the last few years. I spend almost every day with photoshop and in time I was able to gain more and more knowledge about right ways of teaching Photoshop. After few Years I felt it's the right time to come out with Premium Courses on udemy. Where I can share some amazing ideas and make Photoshop fun!
