Watching the daily free Episodes will give a great tips of a lot of technique, but u won’t able to get the full picture and Phlean Pro is your complete tutorial for your photography retouching world. I love phlearn pro, it trains me from a completely novice to a level that i can freely express my idea in my picture.

I have to say it is really the best on line tutorial ever you can found. Do get the pro now!

– Matt Liu

As far as photoshop is concerned I’m very much in the early stages, but the way Aaron teaches even an old non-techie beginner like myself can follow along with plenty to learn in a very understandable way no matter how much, or little, they know.

Someday maybe I’ll actually get decent at this stuff, but for now at least I found a place where I can find plenty to keep me going without feeling overwhelmed or intimidated… Proud to be part of the Phamily!!!

– Scott Allan

The amount of knowledge you learn from the Pro videos is invaluable.

I would encourage it to anyone who is just starting out – or for anyone that wants to take their craft to another level, this is the place to start. Right here at Phlearn. You will learn techniques that you had no idea existed in Photoshop!

– Ron Ibarra

The Phlearn Pro Tutorials have completely changed the way I approach projects in Photoshop.

Not only have I learned so much new material, I’ve now seen how the tools I used to use on a regular basis used in completely different fashions rendering amazing results. The icing on the cake is all the extras you get with the purchase; the patterns, textures, brushes, actions, etc.

You guys have really built something great here. Thanks a lot!

– Nick Silvester

The quality of tutorials and content that is produced by Phlearn is second to none.

After spending years watching tutorials on YouTube and buying expensive videos, I discovered Phlearn. The average Phlearn tutorial is much longer than any homemade YouTube tutorial. The content of each video is also much more in-depth.

It’s unbelievable how many new things you can learn from each video. There’s always a couple small things, that you pick up here and there, that you find yourself using all the time. This is in addition to all the extras that are included with the tutorials like brushes and actions.

The price point for videos in perfect, especially because I have paid hundreds and hundreds of dollars for 1-2 hour videos.

I am constantly telling my friends about Phlearn . I am found that both photographers and artists love it equally.

– Ray Miles

What can I say about Aaron Nace and the Phamily that hasn’t been said already? The ingenuity of Phlearn is something that Youtube will never have, nor will some of these back door tutorial sites that only Google can find. They lack the wherewithal to build our skills and hone in our true potential. Phlearn offers a step in the door that no other learning site could ever compare to.

The Phamily are some of the most nicest, and sincerest bunch of photographers and teachers you will ever have the pleasure of talking to. There’s also no comparing the Phlearn Pro tutorials to anything else on the web. I myself have purchased a few and they are without a shed of doubt, the most influential and in depth learning videos I’ve ever seen, and the dichotomy of each video lends a hand to all styles and formats. I for one am happy to be part of the Phlearn Phamily and will continue to visit the site as long as it’s longevity stands.

The future of Phlearn is fueled by us and the team and I am so blessed for all the help they’ve given me personally and for the pro tutorials that I’ll never stop watching. I stand on the shoulders of giants, and it’s been an ongoing learning journey that Im proud to be a part of.

I wish Phlearn was created 5 years ago, it would have saved me a lot of time learning Photoshop!

– Julia Kuzmenko McKim, Professional Retoucher

Muchas veces pasaba por mi mente el deseo de encontrar una página en la que pudiera encontrar tutoriales distintos, fáciles pero de gran ayuda… necesitaba que alguien me dijera: “Abre photoshop sin miedo, eres capaz de crear todo eso que imaginas” y entonces encontré Phlearn, el lugar que brinda todo tipo de conocimientos sin ninguna restricción, un libro abierto con todos los tips necesarios para crecer en el arte digital junto con miles de personas más.

He seguido a Phlearn desde entonces y debo admitir que gracias a los tutoriales he mejorado no sólo mis habilidades en photoshop sino que también he ampliado mis conocimientos como fotógrafa. Aaron hace cada tutorial algo interesante y algo personal, puedes sentir que te está hablando a ti, que realmente estás ahí en vivo aprendiendo paso a paso con él sin importar de qué país vengas o en qué lugar estés siempre y cuando tengas las ganas de materializar lo que imaginas en fotografías.

Phlearn me ayudó a pensar libremente frente a la computadora, aprendí que no hay límites para editar o retocar alguna fotografía y a no tenerle miedo a Photoshop.

Ahora puedo hacer que mi hermana vuele, que las modelos respiren bajo el agua, que lluevan dulces o que la piel de cualquiera luzca como de súper modelo… es como saber hacer magia.

– Xanath Mirell

Phlearn serves great food for thought in the continuous strive to perfect the PS crafting ;)

What’s most striking is the great bang for the buck. Quality equals those charging 5x for similar content…

– Jonas Forsberg

I can’t say enough about Phlearn.

It’s the single most important resource for the development of my photography. But it doesn’t stop there. Aaron has taught me not only how to take a good photo, but he’s taught me a new way of viewing art, and the world for that matter. Anybody can explain the nuances of aperture, shutter speed, and iso, but it takes a special person to infuse creativity, change the perspective of others, and build a community.

Aaron’s achieved this is the last two years, and I cannot wait to see what he has in store for the future! Thanks for the invaluable gifts of art and PHamily!

– Jack Temple

I found many new and unique editing and photography ideas that have opened up my portfolio into so many new and fun directions. I really like how every element isn’t just pitched as a new trick or gimmick but a group of many final elements that are layered to create a wonderful image. There is so much useful information on the web but it seems as though it is very condensed and clear on this website. The tutorial and clips are very easy to follow and help you produce your own creative ideas.

– Scott Goodwill

I’ve just joined your great Phlearn community… and just bought my first Phlearn Pro tutorial too… (The Last Athlete).

It was really great… In my learning experience, tutorials often goes up to 50 or 60% of the professional level you want to achieve (tech stuff, criteria, lightining, etc) … the other percentage is totally up to you in your experience and perseverance in your work…. but it always seems to be certain PRO knowlege that is really hard to deduce… and it would take a large amount of hours (or days) to get there.

Although you always have to do your homework, this tutorials really give you that… specialized techinques and very practical ways to solve complex situations, and also… very important… they also train your eye and your brain to get a really good criteria to know what to look for in your images.

Thanks for your great work.

– Jose Duenas

I have a lot of PRO tutorials, and they are all fantastic. The basic phlearn is great, but in the PRO tutorials Aaron goes much more in depth. In addition, in the PRO tutorials you can understand how to create a quality photo from the beginning to the end, and this allows also to understand the creative concept that there is behind all.

Some great skills in photoshop are explained and can be therefore applied to your shots. In one year, thanks to basic phlearn, but much more thanks to the PRO tutorials I bought, I reached a level in photoshop which I would have never thought I would have reached. :)

– Stefano Tealdi

I am from Mexico, i found out about Phlearn watching the [Framed] show staring Aaron Nace. What attracted me to the site was the creativity he injects in his projects. Actually, i was looking for something like that, a way to create cool ideas and translate them to a story through photography, and that’s what i feel Aaron does with his work.

Also, i was looking for a tutorial on how to enhance skin dodge and burning, so i decided to buy the tutorial here. I found it very useful because it encourage you to use your hands to paing… almost literaly, paint with a tablet. So, so far, Phlearn is a site that i stop bye every day.

Keep the good work!!!

– Daniel Flores

I’ve been a photographer for a long time and have been using Photoshop since its first incarnation. I thought I pretty much had it covered. Turns out, not so much. I’m pretty new to the site but I have learned so much from watching Aaron’s free videos that it was a simple decision to purchase the PRO tutorials and I’m so glad I did. The quality of the production and level of content is awesome; in depth but clearly explained.

Aaron has such an easy, natural way of presenting information that you can’t help but feel you’re being personally tutored by someone who really knows and loves his craft.

Save your money on books, stop looking at 10 minute blurry Youtube clips and spend some time with PRO. You’ll learn more from one PRO tutorial than you will from most books out there combined. Where can you possibly get between 2-3 hours of professional tutoring per video that you can refer to over and over again for under $25 (even cheaper when he has a sale)? ‘Nuff said.

– Steve Parker

Using Phlearns tutorials and weekly newsletters have really increased my skills with photoshop, not to mention getting a ton of good ideas for projects I take on.

I recommend all my peers to check out Phlearn!

– Tucker Joenz

The first thing i do when i get home from work is to visit the Phlearn website for news. At first i went through all the free episodes but i ran out of news really fast. I took a step further and bought a Phlearn PRO and I think that they are the best tutorial videos I have seen. And I watch a lot of videos.

Aaron is a great teacher with the biggest enthusiasm. Sometimes I think it is his personality that inspires me more than photoshop itself. Exactly the way a teacher is supposed to work.

Thank you Phlearn for your existence.

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.

– Nicola Taylor

Even if you feel comfortable with your photoshop skills, the Pro tutorials will always show you new stuff and things u would have never come up with yourself. They make your work/hobby so much easier and Aaron just makes you want to start with the same thing right away. He makes you smile quite often as well which makes the tutorials phantabulous !!! I simply love Phlearn and the Pro tutorials are just the icing on the cupcake. They are well worth the small amount of money !

– Marvin Schaer

Several years ago, when I first got into photography I looked online for tips, tutorials and so on, but there was very little good information out there. Then I took Aaron’s class that he used to teach and I started watching Phlearn when it came out and my skills dramatically improved in the whole understanding of photography, along with my photoshop abilities.

I have been using photoshop for 8 years now and ever since I took Aaron’s class and watched some of the Pro tutorials, I have become significantly more fluent in photoshop. It’s funny because when I feel I understand how most conceptual images are put together and edited, Aaron comes out with a new technique that changes my whole perspective.

– Jeff Thomas

First of all I must say that I don’t speak english very well (it’s not my native language) but I’ll try to explain myself. How PHLearn has changed my life? Well… Do you know the feeling of looking back and been ashamed of yourself? This is what it happens to me when I look my old photos. Phlearn has tought me a lot of usefull thing: blending, dodging, retouching… things that it could seem easy to do but that they aren’t.

As a non-english-native I have to say that Aaron speaks very well, so it’s easier for me to understand him. In addition, when he explains something, he doesn’t tell you what you should do but he shows you. And, you know, it makes you feel relieved.

In conclusion, if you’re thinking of buying some PRO Tutorials let me tell you something: “Stop thinking! Just buy it!” It’s the best inversion that you could do. They’re usefull and you’re going to understand them quite well. And I’m sure that you will be able to make fantastic things soon!

– Sergio Otero

To start, Phlearn is amazing! I have searched the web over and over trying to find good photoshop tutorials that actually went into depth on the tools and techniques for creating the type of photos I see in my head. About six months ago I found Phlearn and am so glad I did. I’m only on my 3rd Pro Tutorial, but have already learned more than I could have imagined in that short time.

Aaron Nace is such a good, fun teacher and really breaks down every step and tool used to create his photos. Not only that, but he shows you how to do things several different ways so you can pick the one that is most comfortable for you. If you’re questioning wether or not to get a Pro Tutorial or if Phlearn is right for you, the answer is YES! Thanks for all you do Aaron and all the others who make Phlearn what it is.

– Dru Lester

Phlearn Pro tutorials have advanced my photography by leaps and bounds. Phlearn gets straight to the point, and teaches you in a way that is easy to follow along. The custom brushes that come with many of the Pro tuts are amazing, and make life easier. Don’t hesitate to purchase these, they are worth every penny!!

– Jeremy Hammons

I am currently a graduate student in Art and Design and Phlearn is my number one resource for Photoshop and Photography tutorials. When comparing Phlearn to other training sites, the first thing which stands out is Aaron’s passion for the subject matter and teaching it to others. When I was in Chicago I stopped by to check out their studio. The staff at Phlearn couldn’t have been nicer to take the time out of their schedule to give me a tour and talk to me.

The tutorials are much more than the technical way to create an image. They help you think about ways to solve and make your own photos. Where other sites teach about the tools. Aaron teaches how to use them in a successful manner. Although I have only been serious about photography for the last two years, I feel the biggest improvement in my craft started by watching Phlearn.
