Great DVD! Very informative


from Alamogordo NM  -  Beginner

Lots of information on DVD.


Excellent CS5 DVD


from Kasilof AK  -  Intermediate

Colin Smith is easy to follow and stays on the task at hand. He has a good way of presenting tasks and explaining what each task is accomplishing. I have gained more from this DVD than any class I have taken. You will learn the a lot of basic stuff at your pace not the instructors. If you miss a little step it is easy to review while having photoshop open. If you have a slow connection to the internet this is a great way to learn.


just what I expected
