    I have tried many tutorials online as well as attending a 2 year graphics course at college …..this lady is the ONLY one I could understand and who made it seem straightforward. Excellent teacher style, great simplified instruction ( although still comprehensive).
    I like the way it was all broken down into very small chunks so it made it easy to do a little at a time without getting bogged down. She spoke at a good speed (not too fast) and showed great examples on the screen. Highly recommended. I have now signed up to the photoshop and illustrator courses too by the same presenter.
