  1. To be honest … it matters not what needs I have for expanding my understanding and mastery of Ps … I always find the right answers here on the Photoshop Training Channel! Thank you, Jesús for keeping me educated!

  2. i really enjoy your content and how quick and informative your videos are i was wondering if you could make a video on how to change clothing or seamlessly moving head onto different body. (sorry google translate)

  3. Excellent! Is there a way to only export the mask? When you alt+click the mask, it shows the white, grey and black representation of the mask. Is it possible to export that white/grey/black image as a jpg or a png? It would allow me to use the mask in my video editing program.

  4. Thanks copiously for the honour done us always and forever. You are the best my gaffer. This video has sealed my understanding of text behind and object/subject. Your videos have improved my Photoshop dexterity beyond words over the year. God bless endlessly, honcho.

  5. I've been teaching myself Photoshop with your videos and others for about a year now, and I've learned a lot in that time – but this has always escaped my ability. Not any more! Thanks Jesus!
