    Probably mistitled as "for beginners" Moves very quickly, sometimes without clearly describing actions taken. This is fast paced and often assumes that the listener is very familiar with photoshop. Good tips if you are already familiar...

    I just bought this class and he contradicts often, speed talks and to me, he is not a good teacher and this is for beginners, I think not!

    Not beginner. Way too fast. I got a couple of tips but he assumes we know more about layers and masks. Guess I need to take that class. I would call this advanced masking. Adding in hairs etc is advanced masking. Too too fast.
