Thanks, Josh Cole for a superb course. I have been designing for a long time but with PSP and changed to PS a couple of years back but never really understood parts of the process so kept reverting back to PSP to get things done. This course has totally given me a new perspective and understanding of how my designing will work with PS. And the housekeeping part you teach, awesome, I had so many darn layers and although naming them it was misery to try and find what I wanted. After going through the course and writing pages and pages of notes I went through again whilst designing a book cover using this new knowledge and if you would like to see check out here.. make sure you see the full cover as I am very proud of it and you should be proud too that your course helped me design it. Thank you https://tinyurl.com/y4cejvso
