  1. Even i watched yours tutorials in past i decided to watch whole series. Even for the amateursr users who are familiar with most of this beginners topics,
    there is always something to learn, or to maybe change the way we do something to the better/faster way.
    Thank you Unmesh so much.
    Great lessons for now, and keep it going while we learn and practice.

    Greetings from Bosnia&Herzegovina

  2. Hello Umesh, you are doing best for the students and beginners, really it's great job. It will be more appreciable if you start all your free courses in Hindi / Urdu as well.

  3. Amazing!You are such a generous guy who share your professional skill to me. Thanks for your help , keep it up.Hope you can go through all the basic skill in the coming videos.

  4. You are really a good person. Such professional knowledge and skills videos are completely free. I have been learning through your videos for the past few months, avoiding many detours in Photoshop learning. I sincerely wish you a happy life😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆

  5. I am using windows since 10 years. But now I shifted to Mac and i am facing problems during using Adobe Photoshop as photo editor . In windows I press Alt+i+a+s for the selective color in Photoshop in windows but there is no keyboard shortcut for this selective color and for most of menus Photoshop in Mac OS. Please please please help. I feel irritating and can't focus on my work due to this problem. I used keyboard shortcuts on most of time in windows during work. Please help😢😢

  6. I was scared of Photoshop for 7 years. I went with you through the first two lessons of this series, did all the exercises with your files to download, and I can’t believe how easy you explain everything and I’ve realised there is nothing to be scared😂
    Thank you so much for helping me grow🥰

  7. I started learning Photoshop just 2 days before your first episode. I swear, it was the happiest moment of my life when I got recommended with your Photoshop lesson. I really feel lucky that I'm learning from you because I used to get intimidated with the abundance of tools in Photoshop. But somehow you make all that so easy.

    You are really a good teacher. Thank you so much for your lessons. I hope we will get to learn much more from you.
