  1. This three part series is worth the subscription price to Kelby Training all by its self. The formatting is brilliant - so easy to use. There is a reason why Scott Kelby is successful, just watch this series and you too will become his Number 1 fan.

  2. Scott, I have always believed that you are a great teacher, and the way you have presented this three part course has only strengthened that belief. Great job!!

  3. Great lesson Scott! I eluded to this in a comment I made on the first part but I'll expand on it here. I'd love to see more time spent discussing how to manage the layers to allow for easy re-editing later. For example at one point early in this video you said something like "We'll create a merged copy so that we still have the individual layers should we ever need to go back and edit them." But then you spent like 20 more minutes editing on the merged copy and subsequent duplicates of it. So if we ever did need to go back and re-edit one of those original layers, we'd still have to re-create all of our editing on the rest of the image. So it would be nice to have a lesson specific to layer management. Not just the fundamentals of layers but the best practices around managing them for easy re-editing later.
