Think you’re ready to jump into post production work? My detailed explanations and guidance ensure you’ll be able to swim, rather than sink.

Have you mastered the basics?

Batch actions

Have you grasped the depth of layers?

Adjustment layers and masks may be complex, but after watching this course you’ll be more than ready to jump in the deep end.

Attention to detail is what makes your work really stand out when it comes to post production. I show you exactly what to look out for and how to resolve common problems.
