Gave me a good grounding in the basics of Photoshop which are often overlooked when thrown into using it in your everyday work, for example, the differences between files used for web and print and resolutions etc. Also, really good instruction with plenty of time to practice and ask questions – really useful having a small group. To top it all, good hospitality, with plenty of breaks and, most importantly, nice lunch!!
