    "Envatotutus has a lot of variety in it's course selection but it's sometimes hard to find a specific course that applies to what you're trying to do. Once you find what you're looking for the instruction is spot on and easy to follow with lots of good examples and tips on how to improve your technique."

    "This site was promising at first. I thought that i'd be able to just look up some specific tutorials but wasn't able to find what i was looking for through the mass of lessons that covered everything from right click specifics to "how to rotate an image." The search function was practically useless. The site is little more than a dressed up google search."

    "I couldn't believe this course was free! With over 2,000 students using it and a rating of 4 stars, I knew it had to be great. This is exactly what I needed to learn to use photoshop in order to make an appealing website for my small business."

    "This link is great for finding more Adobe Photoshop You Tube channels than I could ever wish for. So many to choose from, I did not know where to start. I thought this resource was over the top with options."

    "I wanted to learn how to take my photos to the next level and needed to learn how to use Photoshop. I found this course online and it helped me so much. I was able to make photos go from okay to WOW just by following the course and learning about how to use this amazing software."

    "The book itself is a great help in learning this. It has all the information you need . In every chapter is the tools you need to be better at Photoshopping with Adobe. It answers any questions you may have while teaching you at the same time. Great book to have and to learn."

    "This is a very good video to help you learn the basics of using photoshop. It covers things like every beginner asks about when first learning to use photoshop and what they expect to be able to do with photoshop. It is a lengthy 46-minute video but it is well worth a watch if you are interested removing blemishes in pictures, changing the color, or editing things out of or into pictures."

    "When I first clicked on this solution link, I expected an article or words. Instead, I was presented with a variety of Youtube videos teaching photoshop topics. There were many Youtube videos with clear indication what playlist of videos were in each, including "Photoshop Basics", "Coloring", "Compositing", "Advanced". Definitely a wide range of options to help any level of photoshop learner."

    "I really enjoy learning about Photoshop. I wanted to find a really good resource for learning to use it better, so I found Adobe Photoshop & Editing Mastery Bundle. It's 31 hours of training taught by professionals. I thought it was a rip-off. You can get much better instruction by just watching YouTube tutorials (which are free) or by taking a class. I just was not impressed and the material covered wasn't relevant to what most people would be using the program for. I do not recommend this at all."

    "I received a copy of Photoshop for Christmas to use with my new camera. I thought it would be a small learning curve to use the software but I quickly learned I was wrong. I was lost with Photoshop and couldn't find any good resources to learn how to use it. Then I found the book "Photoshop CC: The Missing Manual: Covers 2014 release (Missing Manuals)" and it was like I stumbled on the golden key. After reading the book everything started to click and I was able to use Photoshop like a pro."

    "I was really confused trying to figure out all the features and functions of photoshop. Thankfully I found Photoshop CAFE before I gave up. Right from the first chapter I was learning things that made everything click. Suddenly I was accomplishing exactly what I wanted to with my photos and digital images, thanks to the step-by-step guides on the site. If you follow the guide from beginning to end, you will no doubt come out of it a Photoshop expert."

    "I like this site because I can get instant detailed instruction on how to use Photoshop. Instead of reading a Dummy book or a Photoshop manual, I can just go to this site and get what I need on-demand and continue on with my project."

    "From their about page, "Creative Bloq delivers a daily mix of advice and inspiration for digital and traditional artists, web designers, graphic designers, 3D and VFX artists, illustrators, and more." If you're learning to use Photoshop, I don't think you should go here. This isn't a site for beginners, it's a site for people who already know how to use Photoshop."

    "I was looking to take my photoshop skills to the next level. A friend of mine recommended a Facebook group called "Photoshop and Lightroom Group" that I should join to learn more. I joined the group and was immediately accepted into the community. I found tons of great tips and knowledge to help me out. Everyone was helpful and took time to help me with my questions. I was very satisfied."
