The internet is a wonderful thing. Without it, it would have been difficult for me to learn everything that I have.

Aaron has created an amazing resource for people to learn Photoshop. It's a new world, and Phlearn is leading the way in teaching the next generation of image makers. Never stop learning!
Nicola Taylor
I first came across Aaron before Phlearn, when he was teaching "Learn Photoshop Live," and I can absolutely say that my development as a photographer would have been considerably slower if I hadn't found him.

I was studying photography at art school and our Photoshop teachers were just TERRIBLE. I learned more in one of Aaron's classes than I did all year at college and for just a fraction of the price! And I didn't just learn to copy other images. I learned solid techniques that I could use and adapt to create the images I had been dying to create but just didn't know how.

It was great to see some of the Learn Photoshop Live lessons being recreated as Phlearn PRO tutorials, making them even more accessible and affordable. They are phenomenal value for money and I'm always astounded by what I learn.

I can't tell everyone how helpful Phlearn has been to me as a photographer. Its like an addiction to a substance that helps you get further in life rather than holding you down or burdening you with expenses. Phlearn serves inspiration in a large daily dose of awesomeness; pure fun and light hearted honesty in every free episode made my the team.

The Phlearn Pros, of which I own 15+ of are the most helpful resource of photography tutorials that teach the things that I want to learn; I have never came across anything on the internet like it, and I even own a Lynda account.

I would recommend Phlearn to every skill level of photoshop user, from causal beginner to advanced photoshop masters. I would like to thank Aaron Nace for his enormous contribution to the photography/photoshop world and would consider him one of my greatest inspirations in this field. That being said, I will continue to support the community and Phlearn as a whole as long as I can even past a high level of photoshop proficiency.
