Layers & Masks Class Testimonials
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!!
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.
Awesome teaching! You made everything so easy to understand. This was the best money I have spent!
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!!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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 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.
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.
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.
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’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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
Wow! That layers and masks class was amazing!! I have learnt more about editing in the past 2 hours than I have in the past 6 months.
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.
I was lead to your classes by a good friend Kim, to help me with my editing, as I was missing some vital pieces of information. I found your class had the vital pieces I needed to achieve great images and lead me on my way to becoming great, with your easy to read & understand classes.
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.
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!
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).
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!
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 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!!
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!
