    Great class. I wish there was more videos but okay for a beginners class. I think Matt is great. I've been following him for awhile on FB and YouTube. I was happy I got to watch him teach, great instructor.

    Fantastic for starting in Photoshop. Excellent teacher with clear deliberate movements and great personality. I had messed round with layers before but had no idea what I was doing till I took this course. Thanks "Mama" (Matt teaches you the basic just way he would teach his mother just getting into Photoshop) He explains everything very clearly. Well worth purchasing.
