    Just finished this workshop and must say it was excellent. Jodi was very informative in covering the basics, some of which I was already familiar with. Now, I feel like I can move forward with my photo editing with comfort and ease when using masking and layers. I look forward to more workshops with Jodi and MCP!

    LOTS of learning in a little time!

    Great class…I learned MORE in this two hours than I did in 12 hours of a PS class I took at our local Community Ed/College program. Concise and to the point. Perfect for a beginner or someone “early” in the PS learning curve. Would love to see this as a weekly/bi-weekly series.

    Holy Helpful!

    This class was a great overview of Photoshop and its capabilities. Jodi did a fantastic job of incorporating knowledge of the software and rounding it all out for a much more solid foundation and understanding. I’m more empowered!

    I was very intimidated by Photoshop but now feel like I can build on the things you showed us and can actually have some fun and begin to edit my pics! I immediately signed up for the Curves class! Can’t wait!

    I’m so glad I attended bootcamp! I learned a little about everything, and feel like now I can jump in. She also gave tips to avoid making huge mistakes that I wouldn’t have known about without the class. Great workshop!

    I had never opened up my CS4 photoshop because it scared me, but Jodi was amazing at explaining everything. I would highly recommend it. Now to put it to use!!!!

    I have been married to Lightroom and using it for 99.9% of editing; I was even annoying myself with it! I knew I was limiting myself by not using Photoshop but I was always soooooooo completely, totally lost in PS that I felt like I was wasting my time. I would try to open a photo in PS, fumble around aimlessly, then get frustrated and close the photo without saving changes!


    I took Jodi’s Bootcamp class a couple of weeks ago. Last week I took Color Crazy and today I took Color Fixing.

    OH. MY. GOSH. Ahhhhhhh….what a change!!! I can’t even begin to communicate my RELIEF at finally being able to edit my own photos with such a great softward product (I use CS4). It’s so, so great. Literally, I wish I had time to go back and re-edit every SINGLE photo I’ve edited in the past!

    Thank you, Jodi. Really can’t thank you enough! I can’t even WAIT to take Curves in September!!!

    This is a really good workshop for those of us new to PS, even if you are familiar with Elements. I learned a lot in the class and Jodi’s examples helped me remember what to chose when. PS seems a lot less overwhelming! I can’t wait to take the next class!

    If you want to learn where to even begin with photoshop….this class is for you! It was a great overview of how to jump in and start working your way around photoshop and how to start doing basic edits on your photos. Jodi is a wonderful teacher and is always there to help you out!
