  1. Scott, I just attended your "Shoot Like a Pro" course in Tampa and loved it! I have just started using Elements which comes with Camera Raw and would love to watch your Camera Raw Basics course.

  2. Great class! I've seen some of the other classes on ACR and Lightroom so I wondered if this would provide anything new. Somehow Scott always seems to give new insight. I really appreciated the tips on using Smart Objects. I've only been using Photoshop CC for 5 months or so and had wondered how to use this feature. This was exactly the explanation I was looking for. Great job as usual, Scott!!!
