    I am not sure if the course helped me at all. I started learning Photoshop using Photoshop CS56 and now Photoshop CS6. The course used an old version of Photoshop with some Tools and Filters that are not existent any longer in Photoshop CS5 or CS6. I believe the core Extracting basis of the course should have been updated or added onto for the new Photoshop versions.

    I feel like I just got pick-pocketed by now getting any use out of the course. Please specify which version of Software(s) had been used for the preparation of the course.

    I wanted to rent as trial to get a feel of what on offers, I am not sure if I should try some of the others photoshop courses which I was targeting for my skill improvements. —- Yes, please post my feedback
