Layers & Masks Class Testimonials
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 you have opened my eyes in a big way! I will no longer have to rely on actions to finish my images 🙂 You explain things so it is easy to understand. I will be able to go back and look over it whenever I need to. I am so glad I took the layers and masks class. I wish I had not waited as long as I did.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!!!!
Thanks to this class I am learning to do my own adjustments and not relying much on actions! I’m so happy! Thanks Damien 🙂
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 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 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).
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.
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.
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 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.
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 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.
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!!!!
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.
Wow is an understatement. I’m sold. Sign me up for the next class!
Awesome first class to take for a newbie. Explained it well and then demonstrated it for clarification. Thanks Damien.
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.
This is a great little course on layers and masks for newbies!! It has helped me tremendously.
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!
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’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.
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!
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.
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.
