Layers & Masks Class Testimonials
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!!
Awesome first class to take for a newbie. Explained it well and then demonstrated it for clarification. 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.
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!
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!!!!!
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!!!!!
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 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.
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 is an understatement. I’m sold. Sign me up for the next class!
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.
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.
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.
I’m a complete beginner with Photoshop and your layers and masks class blew my mind! The way you put everything together is amazing!!!!
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.
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).
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!
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.
This is a great little course on layers and masks for newbies!! It has helped me tremendously.
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.
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!!!
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!
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!
