Review Summary by CourseHorse

Students who have taken classes at Adobe Photoshop Bootcamp have overwhelmingly positive things to say. The classes are described as fun, useful, and informative, with instructors who are enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Students rave about the clear and concise overview of all Photoshop functions, as well as the hands-on exercises that allow them to practice and experience the software in real time. Many students mention that they learned things they didn't know were possible with Photoshop, and that the classes gave them the skills they needed to confidently edit photos and navigate through the program. One student specifically mentioned that even as a beginner, they left the class with a great understanding of basic Photoshop techniques. Overall, students highly recommend the classes at Adobe Photoshop Bootcamp for anyone seeking to improve their Photoshop skills. Quotes: 1. "Noble Desktop makes it so straightforward and easy to learn Photoshop, even if you have never opened the program before. Their watch and learn first approach is excellent as the instructor will guide you step by step through each exercise before then going through it yourself." 2. "The basic Photoshop class was superb - the coursebook is reference quality, and the teacher really knows his stuff and makes the extra effort to make sure students understand the concepts behind the software's actions and features." 3. "If you've waded into Photoshop alone and need some help getting out of certain weedy areas, this course will set you on the right path. Excellent coverage of fundamentals and non-intuitive functions will pique your interest to take the extended class."
