A great way to learn Photoshop

For a long time, as hobby, I wanted to learn Photoshop. Since I do not have time to practice often, my problem regular was forgetting commands. With this application, I now only learned the commands, but I also, at my convenince I can go back and review a lesson.

For new user, I recommend that you do not feel guilt if you have to redo a lesson (in my case I had do redo some lessons more than one). Photoshop has to many tools and details that I find impossible to get everthing at once.

As recommendations for improvement in new versions:
- slow down when selectiong menu options (in some cases the movements are too fast to follow)
- add lessons for common specific adjustments: improving an old picture, over exposure, creating a mask with text to place all pictures from a trip.

I loved the course!!! Great experience.

Excellent Start

I can't say enough good things about this tutorial. I didn't know much of anything about photoshop and within a couple of hours I was editing photos, making posters and more! Perfect for any newbie and well worth the price.

Not cool….

So I tried to download this app before I went to bed, it downloaded but I was never able to open the app.. I tried a couple more times with really great service and it still didn't work. I really hate it because I spent $5.99 for this app.. I will defently miss my money that I worked hard for considering being a student and trying to learn how to photo shop. By the way I have a MacBook Pro Retina. (I don’t know if I am missing anything about the downloading process…)
