Very clear, super easy. Been doing it the hard way for years! Thanks.
Easy to follow if you have the proper software. Had to review some points a few times before being able to use all the suggested Adobe tools. Once I was more comfortable with the tools I was able to replicate similar results. Very happy I took this course and looking forward to using it on more of my projects.
