Layers & Masks Class Testimonials
The layers and masks class was amazing. Very easy to follow and you explained everything clearly.
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.
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!
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.
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 can’t believe how much i have learned..Damien thank you so very much as your class was so easy to understand with clear instructions.
I have never met someone so knowledgeable, so willing to help a complete stranger half way around the world, and that can also explain the most complicated stuff in the most easiest to understand format. I would highly, highly recommend his classes. I enjoyed my learning throughout the layers and masks class so much since he makes it so easy to understand. These classes have forever changed my photos and I now feel so confident in my editing.
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!!!
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!!
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.
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’m a complete beginner with Photoshop and your layers and masks class blew my mind! The way you put everything together is amazing!!!!
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.
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!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Awesome first class to take for a newbie. Explained it well and then demonstrated it for clarification. Thanks Damien.
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!
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.
The layers and masks class has been amazing! I quite literally spent days and then a few more days watching countless videos and reading how-tos on how to learn the starting points of Photoshop and I got nowhere but frustrated and confused. I came across Damien’s class (which is insanely well priced) and within hours I understood more on layers and masks than in the days I had spent previously. This class has provided a huge foundation for me to be able to create art with my photography in Photoshop and I have access to the class for some time so that I can go back and read it over multiple times. I would recommend this class very strongly. Thank you Damien!
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.
Wow is an understatement. I’m sold. Sign me up for the next class!
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!
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.
Thanks to this class I am learning to do my own adjustments and not relying much on actions! I’m so happy! Thanks Damien 🙂
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!
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!!!!!
