Layers & Masks Class Testimonials

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.

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

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.

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!

Cynthia, USA

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.

LaTanya, Tennessee

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.

Brandy, Texas

Layers and Masks are not as scary as I thought… now that I’ve taken Damien’s class. I ‘get it’ now. Hallelujah, I get it!! Thank you for making the course so easy to follow and understand.

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.

Lee, Queensland

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.

Debbie, New York

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.

Linda, New York

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

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.

Sandhya, Toronto

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

Alicia, New Zealand

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

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.

Louise, New South Wales

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

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

Danielle, North Carolina

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.

June, Nebraska

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.

Lorena, Mexico

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 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!

Sarah, California

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

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

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!

Sandy, Alabama

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

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.

Carol, New South Wales

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!
