  • Has anyone ever used these?

    I have no access to PS training in my area, and I find following written tutorials difficult.

    Will these be very helpful? Any critiques?

    Guess no one else has used the DVDs, but I certainly have considered buying them. If you read Doug's review, he states, and I agree, that "Reading a book is no match for watching over an expert's shoulder while they work." I bought Ms. Eismann's first book on Retouching, and it is excellent. Do you or a friend own it, or does your library have it? If you have not yet read her book, I would NOT buy the DVDs -- unless you don't have to worry about the money . First see how you like her teaching style and methods in the book, and then if you want more -- go for the discs.

    I am NOT sure how much more she can explain in the disc that she doesn't share in her book, but I want to see her in action, and think that I would learn something from the opportunity. If I had a bunch of extra money, I would have already bought one or all of them, but I will probably treat myself to one for Christmas.

    Ms. Eismann is highly skilled, writes clearly and well, openly shares her knowledge in her books and on her website -- you can't go wrong if you buy the DVD's -- it's just a matter of the expense and your budget.

      Hi all. I have Katrin's PS Image Restoration & Repair and PS Creative Compositing. I refer to both of them quite a bit.
      Somewhat on the high side price wise and I wish they were dvd's but still a great investment.

        Bob -- they are offered as DVDs now (for $10 more, on the website that sjm linked ) -- maybe you could sell your videos on EBay and buy the DVDs?

          I can't read
          by Doug Nelson
          I buy a several fiction books per month, but I don't read them.

          Oh, I try to read them, but I'll inevitably get to a paragraph or plot turn that makes me shudder and put the book down. I recently bought a little table so I'd have more horizontal space to leave my partially-read books...

          books I have on how to learn to use Photoshop;

          Scott Kelby's 7-point system. This was the only one I had heard of so I started with it. Probably not the best book for beginning Photoshoppers but it does teach you a workflow for improving photographs. It's heavily into ACR so keep that...
