Layers & Masks Class Testimonials
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!!
I would recommend that everyone take the class! Even if you know quite a bit about adding layers/masks, the tutorial links and short cuts that Damien teaches are worth the minimal fee.
Where were you 2 years ago Damien? Or rather, where was I two years ago? I should have signed up for your classes then…Could have saved myself headaches, frustrations, sleepless nights, not to mention money! Thanks for this class – brilliantly put together.
I am just learning photo shop and your class was so simple. I now understand how layers and masks work and cannot wait to start using them on my photos. Thank you so much.
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!
Just looked through the Adjustments Layers & Masks class, would like to congratulate Damien on a well written and easy to follow tutorial for beginners, If only someone like Damien was around when I was first learning stuff!!!!!
I have spent endless hours watching videos and PS tutorials online but still layers and masks wouldn’t make any sense to me until I took Damien’s class, it all started making sense, it was an eye opening experience, Damien gives simple explanations of everything you need to know and it is easy to understand, plus he answers your questions ASAP. Thank you Damien, I am ready to take the levels class and keep learning from the best PS instructor.
At last I understand layers and masks! I just wish I had found Damien’s classes first rather than wasting time and money on other courses that wee as clear as mud. Damien explains everything using analogies that make sense. He also explains the ‘small stuff’ and doesn’t assume the student automatically knows certain things. I will be investing in his other classes asap and highly recommend him to all. The beginner, who will be blown away by what they learn, and the experienced user alike, who I guarantee will find shortcuts and tips to improve their use of PS.
This class was exactly what I was looking for. I have tried youtube tutorial before which looked fun and plausible, however for a total beginner like me, who used to be scared of trying PS it was already too advanced. With Damiens format I felt comfortable throughout. No need to leave the comfort of your home to join a class which I would most probably not have enjoyed (from previous experience).
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!
This is a great little course on layers and masks for newbies!! It has helped me tremendously.
I purchased PSE 12 a year ago. Since then, I have read numerous books and watched more videos than I can count, trying to get a working knowledge of this program. I’ve walked away from every one of them feeling more confused. I’ve just finished my first read through of your layers and masks class and I’m blown away! I’ve learned and understood more from that initial read than I have from anything I’ve studied during the past year! I can’t wait to go through it again and practice each and every trick I’ve learned. Thank you so much, Damien! This class has rocked my world!!
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 am just beginning to learn how to edit pictures and Damien’s layers and masks class has already taught me so much! He teaches in a way that even I can understand (having never used any Photoshop software). Thank you!!
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.
Thanks to this class I am learning to do my own adjustments and not relying much on actions! I’m so happy! Thanks Damien 🙂
This class explained Layers and Masks so simply. I was so confused as to how to Mask this has allowed me to further my learning and open up my ability to create what I want. Thankyou.
Just sat down and went through your layers and masks class, and want to congratulate you on a great job!!! Nice and easy to read. Also want to say, that I admire your patience and dedication to the questions asked, you seem to explain so simply.
Over the last two years, I have done Lynda.com, KelbyOne, purchased too many books to count–just to learn PS (I couldn’t comprehend layers and masks). It took me two WEEKS to understand AND get the hang of Layers and Masks after taking your course. THANK YOU!
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.
A very informative and easy to follow class! I learned a great deal in a short amount of time. Layers make more sense when you can refer back to the subject matter again and again, and move at your own pace. Excellent course. 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.
I am able to make my pictures look much better now that I finally understand the layers and masks — even pics that I thought I couldn’t save.
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!
The layers and masks class is amazing, direct and to the point. I love with way you teach, very easy to understand and not a lot of techo stuff to swallow. Thanks you for all that you do.
I’m a complete beginner with Photoshop and your layers and masks class blew my mind! The way you put everything together is amazing!!!!
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!
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.
Your Layers and Masks class was wonderful! It really helped it to just click. I seriously use it a lot!!! The way that you explained it all was very simple and easy to use. Thanks so much!
This class was very easy to follow and i have learned so much, thank you so much. I highly recommend this class to anyone starting out in photoshop.
