    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!!!
