Layers & Masks Class Testimonials
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.
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. Â 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’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 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!!
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 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.
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 â€œYES!â€, I would recommend this to anyone! I even learned a few new shortcuts that have already made my workflow quicker and easier. Thanks, Damien!
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 meÂ 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 is a great little course on layers and masks for newbies!! It has helped me tremendously.
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 sat down and went through your layers and masksÂ class,Â 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.
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. â€œLayers and Masksâ€ 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.
The layers and masks classÂ was amazing. Very easy to follow and you explained everything clearly.
This classÂ 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.
Wow is an understatement. I’m sold. Sign me up for the next class!
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!
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.Â THANK YOU!
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.
Thanks to this class I am learning to do my own adjustments and not relying much on actions! I’m so happy! Thanks Damien 🙂
The layers and masks class is amazing,Â 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.
Just looked through the Adjustments Layers & MasksÂ 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 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!
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!!
The layers and masks class has been amazing! I quite literally spent days and then a few more days watching countless videos and reading â€œhow-tosâ€ 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!
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.
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.
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.
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).
