Christopher is very knowledgeable with Photoshop ... I can't begin to say how patient he was with me and helpful he is with this program!!!
I had a very light background with PS but had not needed to actually use it until recently with my work.
I made contact with Christopher and asked for help (help!!!). We worked out a workable schedule very quickly and he had me hands-on in very little time.
I had no idea of all that was part of Photoshop yet Christopher got me up and running with the program with just two sessions.
Thank you so much!!!
