Layers & Masks Class Testimonials

Another excellent class! Having used Layers for quite some time I wasn’t too sure how much I would get from this class but I am so happy I did it! I picked up lots of great tips which will improve my editing time & the end result will be greatly improved also. Thanks Damien.

I’ve been using photoshop elements for about 20 years now. Took Damien’s Layers & Masks class and even though I knew a lot of it already, the class helped me to understand it deeper and I learned some new tips and tricks. Money well spent.

Damien – This was the clearest and most concise description of levels and masks that I’ve ever read. I appreciate your straight forward approach, your humor, and all of the linked tutorials and videos that add depth to the course content.

I signed up for the Introduction to Adjustment Layers and Masks class. It is without a doubt the best thing I have done to start finally learn how to use my elements 10! It is also the best $20 I ever spent. I have watched videos, taken some classes in elements, but it was all still very confusing to me. Damien explains layers and masks in a way I can easily understand, and am no longer afraid to use layers!I have relied exclusively on actions, but am so excited to do editing on my own. Good-by frustration!! My photos, my clients and I thank you!If you are thinking about taking any of Damien’s classes, don’t hesitate, they are worth it and you will learn, understand and be amazed at the difference it makes in your editing.

Being completely void of any prior understanding of Photoshop, I really had no idea where to start. I found your step by step layers and masks class completely bullet proof and gave me the confidence to fiddle where I wouldn’t have dared before. It really is the kick start that is needed for people like myself.

There are seemingly hundreds of ways to get the same result in Photoshop and, in the past 5 years using it, I’ve learned many from different people and programs. I use it fairly effectively but I always seem to find a neat trick that I never knew existed that seemed quite basic. Damien’s class was recommended to me for a higher level editing process I wanted to learn. Problem is, I didn’t know how to do what I wanted – to find which class it would be covered in, so, I decided to buy a class and see whether it would be worthwhile trying to find it.I bought his cheapest class, even though it was aimed at beginners and I’m embarrassed to say that there were some basics in there that I had no clue about. Had I known them, my workflow would have been much quicker.I am happy to report that Damien’s class is very thorough, easy to understand and, even a intermediate PS’er, will find it worthwhile to rediscover some basics in the beginners classes and go from there.I am looking forward to what I can discover in my next class.Thanks Damien.

Great class! The comment section of each slide is a valuable learning tool and a wonderful bonus I wasn’t expecting. I found the class easy to follow and great to be able to come back to continuously. Thanks Damien.

Faye, Queensland

Wow is an understatement. I’m sold. Sign me up for the next class!

Danielle, North Carolina

I’ve worked with layers and masks for quite some time, and thought I was doing it the right way. But after taking this class I have learned a great deal.. I would suggest this to anyone, wanting to brush up on layers and masks.. A much better understanding. Thanks Damien for all you do.

I have used Photoshop for many years, including using layers and masks. Although some of this was familiar to me I found I’ve learned a lot. This is a difficult area to teach but I found Damien’s class one of, if not the, best class I’ve ever come across. It’s well presented with great step by step slides. For me, having a foundation on which to build the bricks of Photoshop is crucially important. This is exactly what Damien’s class offers. Quite simply, superb.

Rodg, Spain

The Layers/Masks class was amazing! The information is presented in an easy to follow / understand manner. This class is a true bargain for the wealth of knowledge gained! Thank you!

Tracy, Chicago

TAKE DAMIEN’S LAYERS/MASK CLASS!!!!! It was the first class I have taken regarding photoshop and OMG does it ever make a difference when editing! So helpful and easy to understand. HIGHLY recommend it.  The layers and masks class is easy to follow and worded perfectly for anyone to comprehend. I learned several shortcuts I didn’t know of and am super stoked to get to editing or re-editing my files. Thank you Damien!!!!!

Bobbi, Missouri

Just finished the Adjustment Layers and Masks class, it was worth every cent. It was great! Very simple and to the point, I now feel that I can effectively and confidently use layer masks in my editing. Thank you and I look forward to taking some the other classes.

Rollin, Ohio

Awesome first class to take for a newbie. Explained it well and then demonstrated it for clarification. Thanks Damien.

Alicia, New Zealand

Damien’s Layers & Masks class is awesome. I was iffy on taking it because I felt I had learned pretty much everything there was to know from an Intro to type class. It was worth the money I paid for it on sale and I would have happily paid the full price and more. I learned so many new things not only from his course but from the questions and answers and the extra videos and tut links he threw in. Even if you think you are beyond the Intro level of Layers and Masks I encourage you to take the course for all the shortcuts, tricks, and editing hints he offers.

Jammie, Washington

It was exactly what I needed. Prior to taking your course, I had played with PS and Elements a bit, but never had any direct instruction about how layers and masks worked. Layers and Masks provided a good (and correct) foundation for using these basic PS tools. With that foundation, I have been successful at learning more on my own, taking another course, and feeling good knowing I’m doing things the right way. I would recommend it to anyone just starting out, or to someone who wants to check or review their understanding of these basic concepts.

Christie, Australia

Thanks to this class I am learning to do my own adjustments and not relying much on actions! I’m so happy! Thanks Damien 🙂

Renai

Thanks to the Layers and Masks class, I finally know what I’m doing! The reading material, videos, and examples were very helpful, great for people of all different learning styles. Thanks Damien!

Lisa, Tennessee

You do not know or understand photoshop until you take Damien’s classes. I thought I knew a bit about photoshop & had learnt a bit through the net & youtube. Now that I have finished the Layers & Masks class I cant believe how much I actually learnt & understand now. You will not be dissapointed by it!

Amy, Western Australia

Damien’s Layers and Masks class is fantastic. I’ve spent many hours slogging through some different online tutorials and got so much more out of this class. It’s a great foundation and now everything is so much clearer. Thanks Damien. I love the way you communicate!

Kristina, Queensland

At first I did not think I really needed the layers and masks course, well I was WRONG. I have been doing this for about 5 years now and thought I was doing ok. Well, I have wasted so much time!!!The information learned in this short but sweet class is amazing. I had a few ‘Ah ha!’ moments along the way. I am off to try some new skills and hopefully be more productive now in my processing. THANK YOU!

Michelle, California

There is only one word for Damien’s layers and masks course. . . . . WOW!!!!!!! It has changed the way I edit in so many ways. I barely use actions, which I depended on from almost start to finish with my pics. If you are on the fence, jump off and go purchase that course NOW!!! I have so much more fun editing now and I don’t ‘dread’ it.

Tonya, Missouri

Love the layers and masks class! I’m somewhat experienced in Photoshop so signed up for this class as a review/refresher, and largely to know if I could recommend it to my beginning photography students. The answer is a resounding YES!, I would recommend this to anyone! I even learned a few new shortcuts that have already made my workflow quicker and easier. Thanks, Damien!

Meg, Texas

I just finished working my way through the class and it was worth every penny (and brilliant value!). I am completely new to layers and masks (they have always scared me in the past) but this explained everything really logically and demystified them. Learnt more in an hour than I have in a year trying to delve into my many books and getting completely lost. Highly recommended!!

Claire, United Kingdom

The layers and masks class was amazing. Very easy to follow and you explained everything clearly.

Jennifer, UK

Wow! That layers and masks class was amazing!! I have learnt more about editing in the past 2 hours than I have in the past 6 months.
