  1. Heike Lindner

    I knew the old course and thought this might be a nice refresher and course to the changes PS did to gradients…
    Holy Cow! I could not have been more wrong – WHAT A COURSE!
    This is all about gradients, but really comprehensive, on a level of deeper insights and understanding about why and how I can use gradients in my work, even in compositing. Love it!

    Opens up great potential of ideas

  5. Taff G. (verified owner)

    It is a fascinating course with a very in depth clear and perfectly explained instructions.I am enjoying learning all about colours

  6. Kathy (verified owner)

    Lots of great information on how to add gradients to make all types of your photos go from good to great!

  7. Alan T. (verified owner)

    It really isn’t about the product as a post-production tool; it’s the exploratory path Blake leads you through. As stated, he makes complex things seem simple by adding understanding. Thanks!

    I am a creative photographer and high user of PS , but the different gradient tools have always puzzled me. This course has really helped and I will be using gradients a lot more. Love Blake’s enthusiasm

  9. Steve Finlay (verified owner)

    Gave me the ability to make my ghotos really pop in a way that I found amazing

  10. Patrick Hickey (verified owner)

    Another solid course by Blake and the introductory price was great.

    I actually purchased this and several other courses so I could have the downloaded software to refer to often. With Blake’s excellent teaching, I went from not understanding and thus never using, solid colors with blend modes, gradients for sure, and tone/color sculpting. I still have a long ways to go in using these tools to achieve the artistic effects I desire, but I can certainly say I am now comfortable experimenting and evaluating my images for tone, color, effects (Blake’s mantra).

  13. Ian Jenner (verified owner)

    This course really blew my mind , gradients is something I have struggled with ,you have made it easy to understand brilliant

  14. Richard H. (verified owner)

    Well done, easy to us, and easy to understand, adds an additional tool to my collection.

    Hi Blake, your webinar and tools are always brilliant and inspiring. I am mostly a bird photographer but always learn something useful with you. I was doubtful that I could come up with bird pictures in black and white that would have the appeal of the coloured ones originally created. This is my first attempt with your new B&W conversion method. I must say that the results are sufficiently convincing and interesting to motivate the pursuit of more bird photography in B&W and beyond color. I can see a future for B&W bird images in my portfolio and love how the gradients can be used to refine some aspects of coloured images too. Thanks again and looking forward to your next course.

    As usual, Blake uses his inquisitive, analytical brain to go deeper into how a tool or feature works than most, then uses his creative brain to come up with more uses for that tool or feature than are commonly thought of. And after that, he uses his talent to teach me like I’m five—in easy to understand ways with both language and art, which quickly becomes an unforgettable addition to my workflow. Of course, he also always gives us extra tools to make it extra easy on us.

    I’m happy with “Beyond Colour”. I derived useful knowledge of the area and I have been actively testing it with my own photographs. If I had one comment, I would say that I haven’t seen a lot of benefit from the actions. As such, I’m exploring gradients without them. Not a bad thing.
    I regret that I am unable to join you on September 21 as I will be traveling at that time. Thank you for making this information available. Great value!

  18. Preston Moochnek (verified owner)

    Excellent course with a truly amazing teacher, recommended for all…

  19. Robert W. (verified owner)

    Great value for money, that taught me to use Gradients in a much more expansive way.

  20. Butch Hovendick (verified owner)

  21. Howard G. (verified owner)

    A great course that is chock full of very useful information that can be used in anyone’s photography. Definitely one of Blake’s best! Get it and you won’t be disappointed.

  22. Kevin FitzGerald (verified owner)

    Well worth purchasing the course.

  23. Mary Wood (verified owner)

  24. Wayne Gillespie (verified owner)

    A very comprehensive approach to gradients. Makes it almost easy to do and understand .

  25. SUSAN B. (verified owner)

    Amazing course. Blake explains the changes to the gradient tool with clarity and explains everything you need to know to work effectively and efficiently. Blake always gives us the tools we need to think for ourselves. Play with the images provided and your photos will thank you! I’ve been using PS for a long time and I still learn something new in each and every one of Blake’s courses.

  26. Ken Wilkes (verified owner)

    Well worth the very reasonable price! Has greatly improved my understanding of gradients and how to use them in my workflow.

    Gradients have always been elusive to me and I finally wanted to get serious about this powerful tool, so I turned to Blake who once again made it much easier to grasp. Thanks Blake!

  30. Thomas L. (verified owner)

    Blake takes something you thought you never needed to know and turns it into a learning experience that teaches you how to dramatically improve your pictures. Truly amazing. He teaches clearly and well. He gives you actions to help make things happen. And, he does it all at very reasonable prices Compare his courses to anyone else’s offers and you get far more information, understanding, and utility at a far lower price.

  31. TC Conner (verified owner)

    Although I’ve not yet completed the course, I knew beforehand that it was going to be great.

  32. Mahinda N. (verified owner)

    Very extensive, eye opener course.

  33. John C. (verified owner)

    Blake’s courses keep getting better. Beyond Color goes way beyond the updates to ‘Gradients’ in Photoshop. The instruction is excellent with multiple examples and tips. The Actions and gradients provided are very useful. Highly recommend this course to anyone who enjoys working with color, especially color grading images and also B&W.

  39. Keith Marlowe (verified owner)

    I appreciate your logical, systematic and enjoyable approach. I am amazed at the power of gradients. I am just starting to go beyond the linear and radial grdients in Lightroom/Camera raw. Your presentation is clear and your demonstrations very helpful.

  40. Rob R. (verified owner)

    Very good training. Really enjoy the concise training.

  41. Antony (verified owner)

    I’m a pensioner so you tend to talk a little fast only a minor thing.

  42. Paul R. (verified owner)

    This course has expanded my use of gradients beyond B+W shading+accents into the color world. Combining gradients with blend modes has been an eye opener

  43. Scott Williams (verified owner)

    Excellent explanation of the “how to” aspect of gradients, but didn’t address how to identify the problem the gradient purportedly solves. Too much “I like it better this way.”

  44. Jagdish M. (verified owner)

  45. Glenda (verified owner)

    Blake’s instructions are always easy to understand and this course is no different. As someone who has rarely used gradients it has shown me their power and versatility and I’ll definitely be including them in my workflow now.

  46. Elsa Hoffmann (verified owner)

    I have been using Photoshop for many many years – but realised in the first video lesson that Blake was going to fill the gaps for me. There are many videos available on YouTube – and many great ones, but they cover little bits only. This course addresses the whole topic. It was worth every dollar I spent and I know the correct use of the gradients will lift my images to the next level.

    Thanks Blake 🙂 You rock

  47. Kjell A Johansen (verified owner)

    Brilliant tutorial! Finally I got a grip on gradients.

  48. DAVID HEASELDEN (verified owner)

    Blake’s enthusiasm for Photoshop is matched by his ability to teach the subject with ease understanding the needs of those who are not so au fait. Until I purchased the course, Gradients were just there for others to use. Now I have a far better understanding of the topic and will be using them in my editing workflow.

  49. john Caulfield (verified owner)

  50. David Prichard (verified owner)

    Compared to some other courses I have purchased, was very happy with the depth and materials covered.

  51. Leentje V. (verified owner)

    I had worked with gradients but what I’ve seen so far in the course is great and although I have not yet completed the course, it is highly recommended for any enthusiastic photo editor.
    I like what you teach people and the way you teach it Blake !!
    Greetings from Leentje

  52. Debbie Stein (verified owner)

    Blake always opens my mind to better pictures and how to achieve that goal! Simple and to the point…absolutely love this!

  53. Gary Cathey (verified owner)

  54. Kevin H. (verified owner)

    Blake takes the student on a deep dive into a PS function that can raise the quality of a photo by several levels of magnitude. I am not a skilled PS user however the very comprehensive teaching style, explanations, and Blake’s enthusiasm makes this a skill I will use in the future.

  55. Paul Horton (verified owner)

    Excellent course full to the brim with methods and practical application ideas – complex but easy to follow with Blake’s instruction.

  56. Gene (verified owner)

    Learned a lot about uses for gradients that I had no idea existed.

  57. Peter L. (verified owner)

    Great products and great value for money

  58. Chris (verified owner)

    An excellent course that has already significantly improved my understanding and use of colour gradients as well as B&W gradient maps. It’s packed full of knowledge and tips as well as ready made gradients and actions. A thoroughly recommended course from one of my favourite educators.

  59. Rick Wise (verified owner)

    Very useful. I do wish you would be more adventurous in you samples. Your second round with the AI picture of a camera and candles could be stretched to a much more moody picture. But maybe I quibble…… At least I am learning how I can push. I’ve been using Photoshop for many years, and you are opening up a whole new area to work with.

  60. Ray Grace (verified owner)

    I watched the original ‘Gradients’ course and, like everything you do, it was comprehensive, easy to follow and a great learning experience. This update has proved to be just the same. A great tutorial, thoroughly researched and presented in typical ‘Blake Style’. Wonderful stuff!

  61. Rajiv Chopra (verified owner)

    The course is excellent, with a superb upgrade/update from the earlier gradients course.

    The addition of the gradients and actions is welcome.

    My only suggestion: update the Palette Effects Panel to include the new black & white process, and add some of these other actions to the panel as well !

  62. Lynne F. (verified owner)

    This course is a great update to the original gradient course (which I had previously taken). It helps bring a greater understanding to the other numerous places gradients show up in the various courses and tools Blake produces. His clear explanation behind the new Photoshop gradient tool, and how to successfully work with it, is the best reason I would recommend this course. Great courses such as this is why I have continued to be an f.64 Elite member for over two years.

    I learn so much from your classes!

  65. Mark T. (verified owner)

    This is a great course. I have always been a bit confused about gradients but Blake clearly explains how to use them and describes in detail some of their most effective uses, especially in color grading. Highly recommended and very worthwhile.

  66. Verified Buyer (verified owner)

    First class instruction

  67. Dennis D. (verified owner)

    A great way to learn all about gradients. Blake covers all the gradients so is much better than learning them piecemeal.

  68. Karl Schneck (verified owner)

    Great material, enthusiasm, and presentation
