    Super helpful! Another powerful technique made easy. Blake is super laid back and throws wonderful bits of comedy in with the class!

    This was a great course and really opened my eyes to an essential part of Photoshop that I had been neglecting. Blake is an excellent teacher. His love of Photoshop is evident in his teaching style and really gets you excited to learn.
