The Master Class commences with your current understanding of Photoshop along with your aims and objectives. We then ensure you are working with the most appropriate tools, workflow, critical distinctions, and skills required for the significant enhancement of your images. Our video conferencing and remote desktop software allow us to intimately and comprehensively work together to resolve and perfect your files, especially those that best illustrate your interests or issues. And while a working knowledge of Photoshop is assumed, these outcomes can be successfully applied to any intermediate to advanced workflow.

The Master Class is also supported by a resource rich website including detailed course notes, videos, and Photoshop Actions.
