    This was a great class. I learned a lot of amazing things that I didn't know I could do with Photoshop. I would recommend this class to anyone who wants to understand the true power of Photoshop and become far more efficient in the editing process.

    I recommend not having Photoshop in front of you during the class. I teach principles and understanding rather than teaching you by rote. There are handouts and videos to support the class. Laptops tend to a distraction for everyone as not all versions are the same, neither are the Photoshop preference settings of each individual's version likely to the same. I have taught this class several times and the lack of a laptop has been seen as an advantage by almost all attendees as it enables the pace of the class to move forward with everyone in step.
