Colin is a Photoshop expert and shares answers to the top ten questions he's been asked, it was a great class!
I really liked this class and enjoy Colin's teaching style. No, it's not the first course you do if you've never touched Photoshop, but it's a class that helps you to think about how to use the software non-destructively, efficiently and creatively once you're familiar with the basics. He crams a lot of wisdom and gems in each lesson from the perspective of someone who's used Photoshop from the very first version.
Just watched the Live Class of this course, and it is by far the most entertaining and interesting class. There is no time for anything except to learn learn learn, Colin is a great instructor, he answered so many of my questions about Photoshop and explained every feature thoroughly (without losing my attention, mind). Thank you very very much!
