    So, I rented the Layers course and ATE IT UP!!! I needed this instruction so desperately. Thank You, Thank you! I have 6 hours left and it goes away, and I can’t have that, so now I have to buy it because I love to go back and reference the instruction as I edit. This is a great way to learn and Matt is a laid-back easy to understand instructor.
    Looking forward to my next course ;-)

    It is one of the must watch tutorial before getting to other photoshop image editing tutorials. Previously I kind of get lost when talking about layers in other image editing courses, now I can follow them better. Thanks Matt.

    I have been editing my photography in Lightroom for the past 3 years, now that I’m getting into product photography and design I needed to learn photoshop. I bought the photoshop CC pack yesterday and this coarse an hour later. It has been great. Photoshop is so big with infinite possibilities, focusing on one portion at a time is the key to not getting overwhelmed. I was able to do the basic edits I needed for my product launch with the knowledge from this video. It was very digestible. Now on to blend modes.

    Extremely helpful and easy to understand video. Matt is the the best teacher. I finally understand how to use layers and it has made a huge difference in my work.

    Loved the Intro to Photoshop for Photographers. So looking forward to watching more of your videos. You broke down a program that I’ve been terrified to approach (using Lightroom 4) so thank you. I know I’m at the tip of the iceberg here but feel confident I can start learning it more in depth now :)
