I thought it was a great beginning for realistically what I would be using photoshop for. Brian has a great instructor voice and is very thorough on helping you understand what he is doing and how. I am a PC user and sometimes we get thought of as an after thought and people forget to recognize that we dont know what keys do what (hot keys) and Brian makes it a point to show (explain) both ways. Super grateful that this was FREE! I feel like everything with software knowledge and education is so expensive and if you are not working yet these fees can add up quickly. So trying to pick the program that will really suit your needs is hard and you can make financially costly mistakes ( I have already made a couple) so I am a little shy on pulling the trigger to buy software programs and for that since the photoshop launch was FREE I am more likely to pay for the Bootcamp because I liked what I was being shown with photoshop launch.

I was absolutely terrified of Photoshop despite the fantastical ideas in my mind's eye of being amazing. I was an absolute technophobe. However, in just three days, The Design Cure Academy course turned me into a confident user of Photoshop. These are skills I will have for life and can now build on. Thank you to Brian and the team for investing in us and allowing us to invest in ourselves. So grateful! Thank you x
