    So happy to find this class by Corey Barker and loved it! It definitely helps if you are familiar with Photoshop but he teaches you so many fun, new things in regards to poster development. I love this is in video because you can watch and re-watch if you don't understand something the first time. You can see how much Corey loves his work and he shares his passion with you! Thanks for another great class!! I look forward to owning more of his classes and they are so affordable!! Thanks Corey!!

    I was literally screaming at my computer while watching this... like it was a football game or something!! YES! OMG!! SO much information - was taking notes every 2mins, and laughing along with the studio audience. Best CreativeLIVE course I have seen. Watched in it all in one go, and will re-watch many times I am sure. Very happy with my purchase. Thank you, Corey!!

    This! Oh, this! More good stuff in this short class than can be listed. I am hardly a Photoshop newbie, but the things I learned here! Like another reviewer wrote, I was cheering out loud while watching. I'll be buying all the Corey Barker classes I can get. Thank you Creativelive.
