As someone who has attended numerous digital workshops and training I can honestly say BigRockDesigns' introduction to Adobe Photoshop was the best I’ve ever experienced. Peter excelled in teaching us the logic behind the main Photoshop tools in a very simple and easy to understand way. This framework made it so much easier when we quickly began learning how to use the main features. Every task was fully explained with examples that we could easily replicate, while Peter was always open to questions and queries. By the end of the two day course I was delighted we had covered everything on the course outline and more. Best of all the course was fun, interactive and I have learnt lots of skills I’ve been able to use back at the office. I can’t wait to do my next course with Big Rock!
Yes this is a beginners' course; but we would recommend having looked at the interface before the course.
