Layers & Masks Class Testimonials
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!!!!!
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 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.
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 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.
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.
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!!
Awesome first class to take for a newbie. Explained it well and then demonstrated it for clarification. Thanks Damien.
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.
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 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.
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 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).
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!
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 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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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 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 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 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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
