Layers & Masks Class Testimonials
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 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!!
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.
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!
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.
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!
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!
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 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.
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!
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.
Thanks to this class I am learning to do my own adjustments and not relying much on actions! I’m so happy! 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.
I can’t believe how much i have learned..Damien thank you so very much as your class was so easy to understand with clear instructions.
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.
This is a great little course on layers and masks for newbies!! It has helped me tremendously.
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.
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 was amazing. Very easy to follow and you explained everything clearly.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
