Complete Course in Digital Photography: Photoshop for Photographers Outline

The reaction to my total experience with NYIP was absolutely positive, I loved the course. Anytime I had a question or concern there was always someone ready to assist me. I really enjoyed the course and the in-depth descriptions and explanations of how or why something should or should not be done.

This course gave me the training I couldn't get from Photoshop how-to books, which seem geared either toward graphic artists or for photographers already grounded in basic computer graphics applications. The result: achieving a breakthrough in expressing my personal vision. I am not only a better technician but also a better photographic artist.
