    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 :)

    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.

    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.

    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.
