The course is really amazing. Photoshop was a super difficult tool for me before I enrolled in this course. And I can't even believe I managed to create so many nice and interesting things during the course. Also, I would like to thank you for answering each and every question and commenting each of my works uploaded, all the tips and comments really helped.

Absolutely amazing to learn the tool. I havent put in my most effort in some parts because for what i want to use Photoshop for , it didn't seem relevant, but for a basic understanding it's perfect.

Yes This is the course i would recommend the people who are about to start learning Photoshop, a good course to learn

Hi Chris,thanks for this wonderful lectures.it helped me cover all issues i faced during using Photoshop ,looking forward for your next course.if possible ,tips for next course for digital arts.will be pleased.

The course is way too complicated for a total beginner especially the first 12 lessons. Very frustrating but I've definitely learned something new

I love the course and the contents. I feel like I will do fine at my marketing intern when they need me to do all the photoshop tasks. I'm hoping to take a web design and UX course as well. Seems interesting!

The course led me to learn and understand the tools that are used in Photoshop and how they can be applied in various situations. It taught me the things I wanted to learn and things beyond my imagination. In my opinion it was more than worth it.

yes, very helpful. Great examples, covers lot of important aspects and encourages you to work on your own as well. Thank you, Chris!

I think your not gonna find a better course about Photoshop than this course its really amazing and very well explained, but the only thing i'm a bit sad about that he never explain blending modes for example when he use an inner shadow effect he sometimes use the blending mode multiply but never explains why!

Initially I was sailing through, but now I am sometimes struggling a bit. It makes me sit down and review what has previously been taught. I do however think that for absolute novice Photoshop learners like myself, there are times when important small pieces of information are left out and this sometimes poses a challenge for me. I however go back to the screen version of the course and look to see what mode or button is being used in the tutorial and this normally has me back in the game. I also have the disadvantage of being 70 years old, not from the computer age and not as clued up as most of Chris's younger computer savvy students. I am loving the course, despite my lack of computer savvy. A challenge is only an obstacle to be mastered.

Well-structured course to learn photoshop tools. Tips and guides for some common effects you would like to create with your photos. More advanced available too. For sure you have to practice again and again to go further. I am satisfied with this course.

This course is good for absolute beginners, it does teach you the fundamentals. But the Title says beginner to pro. I feel that it needs to go further to get to the pro status. I feel I now have to spend more money to do an advanced Photoshop course to get the pro status. Also Chris needs at least a couple of teaching assistants to help him with the review work. As not all work is reviewed and feedback left, so students can get a bit despondent with the lack of feedback.
