Layers & Masks Class Testimonials
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.
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.
I just finished the Course that Damien offers for layers and masks. I reduced the screen size on both the course and PSE, so I could fit them both side-by-side on the computer screen. It was PERFECT! Just like he was right here with me. Thank you so much Damien for the class, and I can’t wait to take them all!
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.
This was the first class that I decided to take (definitely not my last). I immediately see a difference in my pictures and Im looking forward to taking all of the classes being offered. You can’t go wrong with the price. Thank you for the blogs which contains tons of information, as well as the video tutorials.
Wow Wow Wow, I spent a whole day on a photoshop course and didn’t learn a thing but a couple of hours with this course and i feel much more confident and have an understanding about how it all works. Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge in a user friendly way.
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.
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.
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!
Love your teaching style! So clear and easy to understand. I got a confidence boost because I understand layers and masks better than I thought I did, and I learned several new things as well. I can’t wait to do more classes.
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!
Wow is an understatement. I’m sold. Sign me up for the next class!
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.
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.
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.
This is a great little course on layers and masks for newbies!! It has helped me tremendously.
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.
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.
I just paid for the layers and masks course and JUST finished reading it for the first time, I have only ready it and followed all the tutorials once but i am amazed with the out come so far!!! I’d suggest taking this class to anyone looking to just understand Photoshop a bit more that also wants to find a easier way of editing!!! THANKS DAMIEN!!!
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).
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!
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!
Awesome first class to take for a newbie. Explained it well and then demonstrated it for clarification. Thanks Damien.
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.
I really recommend the Layers & Masks class. Well worth the small price. It is very clear and made many missing pieces fall into place. I can’t believe how much I have spent on other tutorials etc.. when this is sooo much more beneficial. Knowing the basics is most important and will empower you to learn so much more. Thanks Damien.
I’m a complete beginner with Photoshop and your layers and masks class blew my mind! The way you put everything together is amazing!!!!
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.
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!
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.
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.
