  1. I have been using ACR for years. Matt's tutorial taught me tips and useful information in every video. I was really surprised at how much I didn't know and how much I learned. Excellent job, Thanks a LOT!! Tom Hilton

  2. Very nice overview, but the explanations were a bit rushed, and not sure I really understood what a lot of the sliders can do or when i would use them

  3. Excellent presentration. I've used Camera Raw, usually in Lightroom, for a long period of time but failed to familiarize myself with all its features. Matt's presentation will help me change my workflow habits while using Camera Raw.

  4. Outstanding. I like the way you break up the course into short chunks, each with its own topic. This allows me to stop and try things out, and also to rest my eyes. You've chosen your instructors very carefully and wisely. Each one has been excellent.

  5. Matt, the camera raw lessons for cs6 have awakened me to tons of new and creative shortcuts for my photographs. That "Matt" my questions before I even ask them. Jerry L.

  6. I am just starting this course and I love, love it! Thanks Matt! I just returned from Italy and have much to learn to make my photos look great. I am so happy I subscribed to Kelby training!

  7. WOW! I thought I was doing something totally wrong because this method or starting the workflow in Camera RAW just made more sense to me (as a holdout to digital manipulation) and it simplifies the workflow. The course really helped me fine tune what I had already been doing and has a lot of tips and methods of workflow simplification

  8. I love taking Matt's courses. He is an excellent teacher. He explains things several times as he repeats his demonstration. The point he is teaching really sinks in because we see it and hear it multiple times. I always leave his courses with a better understanding of what it is he is teaching. Great job Matt!

  9. Matt's course was very clear and easy to follow and I now have a strong basic understanding of ACR. I have not used ACR much, but from now on it will be a more used part of my workflow. Thanks, Matt.

  10. Matt great course. Are you still using LR5 as much? As a beginner how do I find the flow of what to watch first .2nd. etc.. I started to watch the the RAW course done by Mr.Kelby ,he said to look at his first one whichI could not find. Some kind of number order for lightroon,acr & photoshop, would help the beginner get off on the right foot. Thank You for all you do here !!
