Student Testimonials

I enjoyed all of it. The instructor was fantastic. I am a complete beginner when dealing with all adobe editing products. She was helpful and excited about the course she taught. --Allen


Great tutorials, much easier to work through with a group vs on your own. I learned a few of the tools I've been avoiding or struggling with.
