Layers & Masks Class Testimonials
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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!
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!!!!!
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.
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.
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.
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!!
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!!!!!
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.
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!
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 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 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 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!
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.
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).
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.
Love the layers and masks class! I’m somewhat experienced in Photoshop so signed up for this class as a review/refresher, and largely to know if I could recommend it to my beginning photography students. The answer is a resounding “YES!”, I would recommend this to anyone! I even learned a few new shortcuts that have already made my workflow quicker and easier. 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!!!!
Awesome teaching! You made everything so easy to understand. This was the best money I have spent!
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.
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!
Where were you 2 years ago Damien? Or rather, where was I two years ago? I should have signed up for your classes then…Could have saved myself headaches, frustrations, sleepless nights, not to mention money! Thanks for this class – brilliantly put together.
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.
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.
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.
