Hi, in Section 2 Lesson 11 the wrong video is showing (its just a repeat of the previous lesson on Catalogues rather than the Tagging lesson). If this could be fixed ASAP, that would be great. This is where I am up to so far; if not for the (apparent) technical glitch, I'd rate this 5 stars! I love the general flow and organization of the material - also the mix of downloads/videos/tips with the two different speakers is excellent!

The videos in #10 and #11 are the same! Can you please let me know when the "Ranking & Flagging" video will be up?

Hi Shadam! You actually do not need to buy this course prior to purchasing the intermediate course. I'm sorry if that was at all unclear during the purchase process. If you'd like to send us an email at support@theluxelens.com and refer to this message, we'll be happy to try to resolve further. Thank you!

If this is the first course you have ever taken this is a good started course but I wanted to take the Intermediate and it wouldn't let me take it till I did this cause which I was a little disappointed by, but I did learn a couple things I didn't know and good to have to refer too.

I like that this has two instructors. Both have a different style and it's nice to mix it up. Also, the tip sheets are great to have.
