  1. Rolf (verified owner)

    Impressed by your quick update to ACR

  2. Marc (verified owner)

    Great course. Clear and concise

  3. Niru (verified owner)

    You are the BEST I love to learn from you

  4. Marvin (verified owner)

    The approach of sticking to learning and practicing every day for 30 days is as important as the material covered! Finally, I am getting over my fear of opening Photoshop because I can’t remember how to do something.

  5. Brian L. (verified owner)

    Quite frankly Blake this is the most watchable and comprehensive course I have used. It’s also very practical and ‘realworld’ (and a bargain!)

  6. John (verified owner)

    I learn several minor tips that will help me going forward.

  7. Tomasz Tomaszewski (verified owner)

    Dear Blake, Your course is very helpful, logical and well structured. The only comments I have are regarding the speed at which you speak. Someone who buys such a course has time to listen to the lessons in full, no matter how long it lasts. So there is no reason to hurry so much. It would also be good if you showed more keyboard shortcuts that you use to show the next steps.
    I would also limit fragments of your speech in which you convince us how valuable this course is. They are too insistent and rub against commercial uselessly. Thank you very, very much. Tomasz

  8. Cor van der Linden (verified owner)

    Good and clear intro to Photoshop.

  9. charles d. (verified owner)

    Excellent idea for a course, Blake! I felt I knew how to manipulate the different tools within PS, but you have really opened my eyes to different aspects of different tools and you have brought me light-years ahead on color in general. I am following your instructions concerning doing one lesson a day then practice. Concept works very well for me. Adobe would be wise to offer your course to folks that really want to learn PS. Thanks again and well worth the price for the course!

  10. Eugenia Mills (verified owner)

    I have just gotten a good start with the course, and already have learned much. I have used Photoshop for several years, and knew I was not making great use of it. This course has been helpful even though I am not yet half way through it. Thanks for sending the revisions when PS upgraded recently.

    I applaud your soldiering up and rechambering for this new iteration of ACR. I imagined . . . getting the alarm at 02:00 and racing out to the flight line to get airborne, and …What! All the gauges on the cockpit console are in different places! Well done for getting off the flight line on time. Oh, I have had the pleasure of your lectures for years. Kudos, sir.

  13. Simon (verified owner)

    I really appreciate the videos you provide. I am much more confident using PS then I was before. The lessons are clear and very informative .. Thank you for all your help!!

  14. Felix VANDENHOUTE (verified owner)

    Clear and perfect ! Thank you

  15. Alan (verified owner)

    Thorough! Very good so far. Working on the New Camera Raw. Very close to the Lightroom experience. Spacing and working on the lessons in between is a good strategy. I am a long time user of both LR and PS but need to improve my PS skills when needed. Blake’s enthusiasm is contagious and spurs the desire to learn

  16. Rolf (verified owner)

    I’m in day 13 and so far it is very good

  17. jude dundas (verified owner)

    The concept of this course is brilliant because after watching each daily video Blakes gives you homework which means practicing what you’ve learnt that day until it is fully understood before moving on. Blake has a unique way of teaching which makes it enjoyable – I can thoroughly recommend this course and I have found it a great refresher and picked up lots of new tips.

  18. Solvi Bragason (verified owner)

  20. Rein (verified owner)

    Some parts are not very clear, for example the Action.

  21. Albert van der Teems (verified owner)

    At this moment I follow the day 8 lesson. My thoughts about this course so far, the video’s replaces all the books I ussely buy to learn something. To see what the teacher wants you to learn and then follow on on your own computer, an eye opener. For all the future buyers, Blake is a reliable vendor, mid June an update for ACR, and 2 days later, an update for this course, amazing. Again, my excuse for this poor English. Albert, the Netherlands.

  22. Dina (verified owner)

    I am at third of the way, and am liking the course very much. Although I know the photoshop quite much but have not practice it. Your course has been encouraging me to do just that. In addition it is providing subtle details that I did not know. You have also convinced me to use bridge and photoshop instead of lightroom. Lightroom is great program with a lot of headaches – finding where my pictures are?

  23. Michael (verified owner)

    Enjoying it so far. Taking it slow, especially changes to ACR.

    My only suggestion would be to slow down you presentation – it is hard to follow where you are in the menu system and I loose how you got there or what you did. It is familiar to you but less do for your audience.

    As always, your material is first rate.

  24. Ed (verified owner)

    Blake is a Magician…. this course, finally, opens the door to Photoshop for me…. I am a devoted Lightroom user…. and now I can add the power and substance of Photoshop for the coup de graˆace!

  25. Mike Cameron (verified owner)

    learned something new and updated for ps update

  26. Francis (verified owner)

  27. Ian (verified owner)

    I have followed Blake from the early days of HDR, and have never been disapointed with any of his Tutorials. They are well planed and thoroughly descriptive making the effort of overall satisfaction most rewarding.

  28. Allen S. (verified owner)

    At first glance you might think this course is too simple, but once you get into it you find that its a great way to learn Photoshop by building on one piece of it at a time.I’ve taken other courses but this one is sticking with me.

  29. Leentje (verified owner)

    So far it’s worth every penny !

  30. William (verified owner)

    I really like this course and the only reason it doesn’t get a five is that Blake is TOO PASSIONATE. He gets excited and the speed of his speech speeds up and becomes difficult to understand for someone like me who’s using Cochlear Implants. He explains things very well but I’ve had to repeat many sections in order to understand all of Blake’s instructions. The improvement in my images was evident to my family and friends within the first four lessons. Would I buy this again? ABSOLUTELY! Do I think it’s fairly priced? ABSOLUTELY! Do I recommend it to others who want a thorough, in-depth presentation of ACR and Photoshop by an obviously enthusiastic user and teacher? ABSOLUTELY!

  31. Daniel F. (verified owner)

    As usual, your trainings are well documented, and each step is explained and is easy to follow.

  32. Walter (verified owner)

    great so far

  33. Lynne f (verified owner)

    Blake is thorough and explains the important aspects of Photoshop as we work through it. His enthusiasm, knowledge and precision in his explanations make Student mastery within reach. I have taken a few courses and bought books on Photoshop and Blake’s course has and is the most helpful In my opinion. His tips on workflow is just what one needs navigating Camera Raw and Photoshop. Most appreciated!

  34. Lawrence (verified owner)

    I rated 30 days at the ‘4’ level because nothing is perfect. This is the course I have been searching for, it satisfies all of my desires and the fact that I can view it over and over absolutely is terrific. Thank you.

  35. Jagdish (verified owner)

    I’m a self taught PS user. Whilst I have watched numerous tutorials on the net, I always feel I learn more watching Blake’s tutorials. He’s taken my editing skills to another level. Thank you, Blake.

  36. Tom (verified owner)

    Suspect this is going to be a valuable long term reference source rather than just a 30 day event. Highly recommended!

  37. AlThompson (verified owner)

    Finally, a training series that brings it all together. The content is clear and delivered with Blake’s straight-forward style and support material. A very easy to watch and learn format. In the first video alone, learned three techniques about Adobe Camera Raw and those items alone have made this purchase worthwhile! It’s like having a good friend drop over to help you learn PhotoShop. Additionally the newest version of ACR had hardly arrived via Creative Cloud and Blake had updated videos in my “In box”. That’s customer service! Thanks Blake, you’ve given me insight and confidence.

  38. John (verified owner)

    I arrived at day five. I hope the rating will stay at this level.

  39. Betty-Lou (verified owner)

    Blake’s way of educating is phenominal. His enthousiasm resonates through all of his videos and that enthousiasm is contageous. I follow lots of other photographers, but Blake’s way of educating resonates the most with me. He makes everything very clear and – very important to me – he educates from an artist’s perspective, which gives me the oppurtunity to grow as an artist.

  40. Robert Ryan (verified owner)

  41. Kent (verified owner)

    I am working my way through as I get time, I have found several different things to help me.

  42. Bud (verified owner)

  43. Alden (verified owner)

    Some great stuff here. I’m on day 10 because I went back to the ACR vids after the big update. Thanks for getting ACR lessons updated so quickly Blake. I also really like the Blend Mode lessons, starting to make more sense with your explanations over Adobe’s.

  44. Dimitri (verified owner)

    The course is really well made, your way of explaining everything is always very clear and understandable even if I discover most of it for the first time. Yet I have a question for you : the new version of photoshop just came out litterally four days after I purchased the course. I suppose you will update the contents for that version; would I have access to the updated course? My concern is that I got the download version instead of the subscription. Please let me know. Thank you, and congratulations for the high quality training you offer.

  45. John (verified owner)

    In the beginning, the course needs info on importing, and saving image files to Br and also moving files between LR, Br and PS. Sometimes my images did not go automatically back into LR from PS so I had to use the Apple search function to find them. What causes that? Was it because I edited image in Camera Raw before going to PS? Did it happen because I first opened image in Br and then continued to PS?

    Also, to me, you speak too fast and sound too anxious; you already sold me on the course. Listen to the cadence of your buddy Matt K.; it’s more relaxing.

    I do think you are offering very useful information and I look forward to continuing with the course.

  46. Evert (verified owner)

    This course was a real eye-opener, I really love the way you explained the many possibilities of Photoshop. It will help me to make better images.

  47. Peter (verified owner)

    Still very early, very positive thus far. Look forward to completing the remaining 20 days.

  48. Nils Elsner (verified owner)

    The material is, as all your other tutorials ,easy to follow.I am not a beginner but apart from the repetition you have a lot of tips and tricks how to do things in maybe another way that i should have done..
    This is really good, It is exactly what i want.
    I have been on a vacation so i have only studie the 7 first lessons and now ia have to go back toe new ACR chapter. Which is of course new to me. I really look forward to the last chapters to see how you tie everything together.

  49. Davie (verified owner)

  50. Ryan (verified owner)

    This was a very thorough yet fast paced class. What I liked most was when Adobe had a big update to Camera Raw and he went back through all the Camera Raw lessons and redid all of them to show the updated version. That was real cool of him to do and shows that he cares and not just doing it for the money. Definitely worth the money!

  51. Paul (verified owner)

    Just completed day 8. So far so good. I appreciate how quickly you updated the ACR videos. I was totally lost when I tried to do Day 4, but you came through with flying colors.

  52. Donald (verified owner)

    Excellent course for all photographers, by a true expert and outstanding teacher.

  53. Brian (verified owner)

    Although I am only about 1/3 of the way through this course, it has already proven to be THE BEST purchase I could have made in an effort to improve my PhotoShop skills. I have already learned a great deal and have essentially reset my approach to PS. It is nice to be able to work your way through at your own pace with the ability to practice and, if necessary, repeat portions. I highly recommend the 30 Day to Photoshop Mastery. Blake has a unique and thorough methodology that makes everything come together perfectly.

  54. mike (verified owner)

    As ever an excellent well thought out product from Blake. It has helped me a great journey in my quest to master the essential tools in Photoshop – the bite size lessons are brilliant. Well done Blake.

  55. Ed (verified owner)

    I am a Photoshop journeyman and have bought and benefited from a number of PS courses. What Blake does in this course which is different from others is he takes a bottoms up tool oriented approach. His philosophy with this course is that you will become significantly more proficient in PS, regardless of your level, if you get to know and practice (what Blake refers to as Deliberate Practice) the tools themselves. This course doesn’t replace other courses but augments them by taking a very different approach. I am only on day 12 of 30 so far and have found the course extremely beneficial. Blake is an excellent teacher who breaks each lesson into small pieces. I highly recommend this course to any photographer who does not yet consider themselves a PS Master. The course fee is money well invested!

  56. James (verified owner)

    Took the course and wanted to have it permanently available to me. Great stuff Blake!

  57. cidermark (verified owner)

    Really well thought out programme of courses. Admittedly I’m only on Day 10 but I’ve learned so much already. The concept of doing small, targeted, chunks of course work each day makes learning much more agreeable. Additionally, breaking it down like this also makes these great reference video’s.

    One more thing, on a personal note about Blake – after Adobe radically changed the ACR interface, Blake immediately created new course content to cater for these changes which he made available within a few days after ACR’s release. Wonderful support Blake, thanks.

  58. Thomas (verified owner)

    I purchased the downloadable version so I’d always have the material available to review. This course is very complete in content and presented in bite sized bits for consumption and individual practice. If you’ve struggled with trying to make sense of Ps, this program is for you. Blake is one of the best Ps instructors you’ll find.

  59. Wayne Henson (verified owner)

    Really getting a massive amount of knowledge and inspiration from the package as I have with all the f64 packages I have purchased. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thanks Blake as I understand the work, effort and commitment that goes into developing such comprehensive systems

  60. Angelina (verified owner)

    So far it’s great. It’s helpful the way you explain each and every button in the RAW workspace and how to use them. I’ve been using PS for a long time and am still learning. I am only on day 5 but am learning lots already.

  61. Nandan1@ (verified owner)

    Absolutely amazing , Blake. you seem to keep outdoing yourself. I hadn’t realized that there were so much ways to be creative in Photoshop. A fantastic learning experience! Thanks, Blake. I always enjoy your courses.

  62. David (verified owner)

    Concise and informative as always.

  63. Clive Reah (verified owner)

  64. Heinrich (verified owner)

    Well done! I appreciate your teaching style very much.

  65. Reginald (verified owner)

    Clear,concise,succinct,a great understanding of colour.A great military style of instruction.On a personal note a little fast in delivery.Reason for my choice of purchase.(one off ) I have to do it in my own time.Great production.

  66. Robert (verified owner)

    Very instructive video’s + training

  67. Thomas (verified owner)

    Fantastic course from a fantastic teacher! I’ve been deeply into PhotoShop for over 5 years and had thought of myself as being pretty good with the software; until Blake offered this course. Blake has taught me things about Ps that I never would have found on my own. He starts out with Adobe Camera Raw and simply builds on what you learn each day. Now I use ACR on each of my editing projects before proceeding into Ps. Having been around Ps for some time I tried to sneak a peek at Clipping masks, for example, because I had heard of it but never really understood it. Sneaking a peek didn’t work. I didn’t begin to understand how it applied to my editing until I worked my way through each day’s lessons. Then, I understood it. So just take it day-by-day and practice, practice, practice. You won’t be disappointed. Well worth the cost of the course!

  68. Gary (verified owner)

    Excellent course. I needed a refresher on Photoshop. With the recent upgrades to Camera Raw I found it would be a good choice to move away from Lightroom and totally use the modules of Photoshop.

  69. Bev (verified owner)

    Breaking photoshop learning into 30 days with 30 lessons is a perfect way to learn. Blake is a very good teacher and the class was just what I needed to get started editing photos in photoshop.

  70. Clay Enos (verified owner)

    Blake … Great job on this course. I am only about half way through the modules, and they are jam packed with useful info, even for a veteran PS user like me. Your dedication to your customers is top notch as shown by your quick updates to the videos with the new release of Photoshop.

    This course is perfect for as a review for one who has been away from PS for awhile, but I would recommend it for all those for all photographers who enjoy learning new skills and/or approaches to PS editing.

  71. Malcolm (verified owner)

    All looks good, I have made a start, but then daily life got in the way.

  72. Charles Colpitts (verified owner)

    So far, so good, still working my way through the lessons. Looking forward to blend modes and blend if.

  73. Patrick McCloskey (verified owner)

    Blake Rudis is an exceptional educator. He is knowledgeable, enthusiastic and he genuinely wants to teach by sharing his knowledge. He brings all his talents to his course “30 Days to Photoshop Mastery”.

    He leads the student slowly and purposely through the vast majority of Photoshop as it applies to photographers. His explanations are clear and are delivered with an infectious enthusiasm. The accompanying notes complement the video presentations.

    After each video, Blake sets the students tasks to achieve based on the lesson. These are a great way to consolidate the learning.

    Towards the end of the course, he pulls together all the lessons to demonstrate how the individual skills work together to produce great images from raw files. His integrated approach is both logical and commendable and, after following his workflow videos, everything falls into place.

    I wholeheartedly recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn Photoshop either as a complete beginner or an intermediate user. I guarantee you will benefit from it.

  74. Richard (verified owner)

    I’m finding the program easy to follow and very informative. Each step is shown slowly giving time to take it in and this is really helpful.

  75. Deleted User (verified owner)

  76. Lyra (verified owner)

    Blake is a clear and compelling instructor. The 30 Days to PS Mastery course is broken up into very digestible sections with excellent examples and useful “homework”. I enjoy his teaching style and find it extremely helpful to better understand a complex tool like Photoshop. I have gained all sorts of good tips and can use PS more easily and effectively.

  77. Holly B. (verified owner)

    5 days into the program, as a total newbie to Photoshop, learning SO MUCH!

  78. Berhard (verified owner)

    I have been using photoshop for quite a few years now, but have not delved very deeply into it This course has made me aware of the advanced features that were there but I did not know how to use them. I now have a good foundation to build on to proceed in my photoshop learning journey. This is a great course for beginners to advance users, you will always learn something new. Blake is a great instructor who explains things in a clear and precise manner. But that said one has to practice what you learnt – the course alone won’t make you an expert.

  79. Errol Wilson (verified owner)

    Blake, I am just on day 5 working it by your recommendations. Please allow me to do what my mother taught me to say, “Thanks”.
    In 5 hours I have learned more about ACR than the time I have spent trying to understand it since it’s introduction. Blake Rudis, you are probably if not the absolute master of explaining and teaching this art.

  80. Larry (verified owner)

    Just finished Day 7. You go quite fast. Usually listen to the video twice and some parts more often. I use LrC
    so the format is different from Adobe camera raw. Sometimes I have to watch a youtube video to see another explanation of how something works. I am going at my own pace. I like the discipline and hope to complete the entire class. I have been using Ps for about 15 years. I have learned quite a bit already.

  81. Markus (verified owner)

    This course provided me a solid base and understanding of the Photoshop tools on which I now can build to further improve Photoshop mastery.

  82. Michael (verified owner)

    I am pleased so far, I am taking my time with each day, starting with day 4, I like the pace and the nature of the instructions.

  83. Gabriel (verified owner)

    It goes at a slow pace giving enough time to practice each PS command. If forces the student to go step by step rather than jumping all over. Very GOOD course.

  84. Andy C. (verified owner)

    I just finished lesson #5. I have been using Photoshop now for 12 years or so and thought I was pretty good. I was completely blown away with Lesson 5 on ACR local tools. I can’t believe what I have been missing out on. I will be re-watching this lesson several more times and practicing for a few days now to master it. I can now see that for most of my photos I will be able to finish them off in camera raw and never have to go into Photo Shop at all.

    Thanks, Blake. You did good with this course.

  85. Ronald MacDonald (verified owner)

    Having watched your first 17 tutorials I now have a much better understanding of Blend if, Clipping Masks and Selections and masks. Great value for money and well woryh doing.

  86. John (verified owner)

    Blake’s courses are amazing. His enthusiasm for the topics and his ability to explain the details simply make his courses a pleasure to engage. I have been a serious user of Photoshop for a few years, and I have learned more from a couple of Blake’s courses than I have with the many others that I have engaged. He definitely is a gifted teacher.

  87. Ronald Coleman (verified owner)

    A lot to learn here. I always enjoy Blake’s courses and videos.

  88. Joy F. (verified owner)

    Blake, please slow down – you talk too fast. 🙂

    I highly recommend this program. It is well worth the money for the knowledge Blake imparts. I would give the program 4 ¾ stars if that was allowed. The only reason I downgraded the program from 5 stars is not enough information on Bridge, IMO.

    I would recommend spending some more time on Bridge (other than just the overview) since this is the best viewing, sorting, marking program I have ever worked with. Just the overview has inspired me to clean up my photo library of duplicate photos and begin tagging photos using Bridge. Since I have literally thousands of photos and tagging came out after I had built my photo library, I have avoided tagging, for the most part. With Bridge, that’s a different story. Now I don’t want to move on in the course until I learn Bridge.

    That said, the course outline is super and I have already learned so much more about Photoshop. For example, working with the Creative Cloud version of Photoshop, I now know there is a website available to me where I can show my work. That’s part of the package. Never knew that.

    I have used Photoshop since level 4.0. The Creative Cloud version, although based on previous Photoshop versions, is so different, it’s an entirely new program.

    Forget HDR. With Photoshop Mastery, you will learn how to shade to make your shot memorable. And Blake shows you some of his original camera shots so you can see the changes Photoshop can make to create something special and memorable. And salable, if that’s the direction you wish to take. Blake emphasizes that you are creating a special moment for you. You are the most important critic of your work. If you like what you create, regardless of what others think of your work, that is what matters most.

    In this course, Blake teaches Bridge, Raw, and Photoshop. These are the three component programs that make up Photoshop. Blake teaches a new subject per day over a 30 day period, but I prefer working at a slower pace so I can truly absorb the lessons. Each lesson is one subject only and about 20 minutes long. Then Blake leaves you to use the information he has given you that day. Subjects include Adjustment Layers, Clipping Masks, Opacity and Fill, Color Range Selections, Filters for Creative Effects, Smart Objects, Actions, and Workflows, to name a few.

    Yeah, I know. You’re saying you know all that stuff. Even if you consider yourself a Photoshop expert, I would recommend this course. It’s the best for both beginners and experts.

  89. Stan (verified owner)

    I have been using ON1 for the last 2 years & Lightroom purchase prior to that. I was totally frustrated with ON1’s issues and not a fan of catalogs. After your recent webinar (excellent) I thought I would give Photoshop (only) a try. I just finished Day 8 and I am extremely happy with your course and your teaching methods. I am really excited and look forward to all of my future lessons. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!

  90. larbee (verified owner)

    Right off, this course that Blake put together is comprehensive yet very well organized and direct. Blake does not waste time! This course has been very beneficial to me and I know that I can always go back to specific lessons for reference as I continue to learn. Thanks, Blake!

  91. John Pascucci (verified owner)

    I am up to lesson eight and have never felt so comfortable using Photoshop. I always used Lightroom and used Photoshop for small corrections I could not accomplish in Lightroom. I never knew the power of Bridge. I love the bite size lessons and being able to work on the same photos to secure the knowledge not just watching a video telling you about it. My new work space in Photoshop is amazing. I have recommended this course to several of the members of my camera club and to friends interested in photography. I look forward to starting a new lesson each day. Blake thank you for such a great course. I am sure that it will make my editing so much better. I look forward to taking you Palette 3 course when I finish this.

  92. Mary Wood (verified owner)

    I am so impressed with what I have learned so far. I only wish I would have found this earlier.

  93. David (verified owner)

    I was hacking my way through on Youtube trying to learn Photoshop and I found “30 days”. I’m the kind who needs it from A then to B and then on to C …. with an instructor like Blake. Thank you f64 Academy.

    Loving it! Going to take me a bit longer than 30 days 🙁 to pick it up but not a problem – can’t rate the RAW GPS or profiles yet as haven’t used them yet but having some great results already with just using the straight editing in Camera Raw.

  98. Kathy White (verified owner)

    This course has been the best Photoshop course that I have purchased. I have been trying to learn Photoshop for a few years now and have purchased 4 different courses. This course is the best and easiest one I have found. Blake’s way of teaching has made it easy to follow and he explains how and why things work in Photoshop. Even his tone voice is pleasing to listen to!! He is excited about what he is teaching and so knowledgeable. I am so happy I found him and I am finally learning to use Photoshop faster and more efficient than I have after many years of frustration with other classes. Thank you Blake for a great product!!

  99. Stuart Bernstein (verified owner)

    I am only on day 4, and need to practice some more.

  100. Michael (verified owner)

    Wow, I’m only on day 11 and I believe this course has already saved me months of frustration. If you are sitting on the fence, get off that fence and sign up. Signing up for this course is one of the wisest decisions I have made in 2020.

  101. John (verified owner)

    Excellent explanation of various topics.
