This class is so, so informative. I've been using Photoshop for a long time, but only for photography, and this as taught me some skills I can use in all sorts of future projects.
Great lesson! Cool lettering turned out the first time. The essential lesson for designers, decorators, and anyone interested in current trends
Molly does a great job explaining the subject matter in a clear and concise manner, and you get to meet her adorable kitty!
