Testimonials...

"WOW. Being a new user of Photoshop, I have spent large amounts of time on other sites and have struggled, struggled, struggled to get my hands around Photoshop. After following though several of your tutorials it is starting to come together. This site is the best I have run across for learning the program. Many thanks." - Stanley J
"I have to say, having looked at much content on line, that your method of instruction is pretty much the best I have come upon on any topic at all. You do that one thing that is the hallmark of good instructions: you make no assumptions as to the skill level of who you are giving those instructions to such that anyone, no matter what their skill level can either read every word or just the bits they need reminding of. It is a great credit to you." - Nick
"I just finished reading 'Understanding Layer Masks In Photoshop" and I wanted to extend my thanks to your hard work. I found the article tremendously helpful and very informative. I appreciate that you explained and demonstrated the different effects of using the eraser tool and layer mask. I also found the subtle humor very amusing. Overall, thank you so much for posting the awesome article!!!" - Justin

"Steve, these tutorials are the Bee's Knees! I have literally dozens of tutorials, tutorial sites, plug-ins, and the like. Since finding and downloading your pdf-based tutorials I find myself repeatedly turning to your materials for quick-but-comprehensive tips. Thanks for the effort. And, thanks to your writing instructors over the years who must have drummed clear, simple English language writing into your head. It worked!" - Robert A.
"Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!!
Your tutorials for Photoshop are absolutely the best I have seen anywhere, and I have tried to follow countless books, articles and other online help sites.

Thank you so much." - John P.

"I signed up for a six month membership a couple of months ago, and I've been glued to my computer having so much fun with Photoshop thanks to your tutorials! In fact, my wife just commented on how many times she's heard me say 'Wow, I didn't know you could do that!'" - Phil D.
"I'm completely new to Photoshop and these tutorials are awesome! I'm able to follow every step and get great results every time! Your tutorials make me feel great about myself!" - Jessica N.
"I'm a wedding photographer and I just wanted to tell you that your 'Blend Photos Like A Movie Poster' effect has been impressing client after client. Every time I show the finished result, I get the biggest smiles, and sometimes even tears (the good kind). You've made me look like a million bucks, and I can't thank you enough." - Kevin G.
"I just wanted to thank you for your great Photoshop tutorials! Your explanations of things are the very best!" - Zile
"I've been a technical writer for over 35 years, having worked for several major tech corporations, and I've never come across anyone who can explain complicated topics with ease like Steve Patterson." - Walter H.
"I finally found what I have been looking for. Your tutorials are just outstanding. I really enjoy your writing style (it is so simple to follow) and you describe every single action in such great detail - unbelievable. I am a beginner and can't stop reading and practicing with them. They are addictive. " - Aleksandr K.
"Thank you for the awesome tutorial by Steve Patterson on RGB and Color Channels. Easy to read, easy to understand, explanatory, technical terms well defined. 10 minutes later and I know a whole lot more than I did before I read it." - B. Thurston
"I read the tutorial on creating a rainbow effect by Steve Patterson. As a former computer teacher and writer/editor of computer tutorials for my staff, I would like to complement you on the quality of your writing. It's clear, easy to understand, abundantly illustrated with helpful/critical diagrams and photos, and, most importantly, you explain WHY a particular instruction is carried out. Many tutorials say "click here", "do this", etc. but you don't understand why or how the action can apply in other situations. Your explanations avoid this all-too-common pitfall. Thank you so much!" - L. Pearce
