    Hello Russell . . . I am RISH and I am a 67 year old fart that has been around computers since 1983 . . . and I STILL know so very little. But I just wanted to tell you that I've been looking for hours over a long period of time, and your instruction video, here, that I've just seen is probably the very best teaching methodology that I have ever seen. And I have three degrees and have been a teacher/counselor myself. You really have a gift for teaching and how to include all things step by step . . . nice and slow . . . with your resonant and pleasant voice to guide one along . . . very calming . . . very well done. BRAVO!! I'm looking forward to your other instructional videos. My wife and I teach ballroom dance, and I also try to take things slowly and deliberately . . . so that no one is lost. It's great to find your ways on here . . . good job.

    Thank you so much Mr.Stasiuk for this video.
    The way you explain the things is brilliant, and the way you speak is very clear, as English isn't my native language.
    so I would like to say thank you again. 🙂

    Can't thank you enough, Russell. After 2 days of going through tutorial videos, I was getting really discouraged. Yours is precisely what I was looking for. It's clear, concise, and perfect for beginners. With the aid of pause and replay, I was able to go over the bits I didn't get to begin with.

    There are many photoshop tutorials on youtube .Usually I quit watching after 5 min.Some talk fast,others have annoying background music or they are too messy teachers which makes it hard to take in the information. Thank you for not being like them. I believe I will learn a lot from this one video 🙂

    Thank you Russell for your video. I have to agree with Vincent,you ARE a good teacher. I was able to follow your actions and ( more importantly) I was able to understand what you were doing and why!
    As an added bonus your three videos are free! I would have paid for instruction like this.
    Thanks again.

    Thank you so much for this video. Other videos took five minutes and longer to get to a point. And then still not clear. You managed to hit the nail on the head in 10 seconds. You are a good teacher.

    I would like to thank you so much. I think you have the most calming voice and really took the time to explain it in depth. I really need this. I watched 3 or 4 others and ended up clicking out of them because they were slow or advanced. This one was perfect I now have 10 pages of written notes for myself and you were perfect. Thank you so much.

    This is great! You  explain things and go through the steps succinctly. A lot to take in at once. I'll watch this again doing each step as I go.Key strokes, shortcuts as well. Thank you
