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.

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.

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!

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.

At first I thought this PHLEARN guy was off his ROCKER and had a lot of girlfriends. I quickly realized he means business. Phlearn is our go to resources for all things photoshop.

‘Phlearn It’ has become part of our every day vocabulary. Keep up the great work Aaron…you whacky b@stard.

Phlearn takes you step by step on each video going back of items so that you dont have to keep looking in a book. A friend first told me about Phlearn and he and I have told anyone we know about them at the time I was in a class on photography the instructor told all of us point blank that while we had to learn how to edit our own photos it that part of the class would be self study because she did not know how to use photoshop.

Using Phlearn I revamped their ideas with my own photos. I passed the class with an A. After the class I was asked by the instructor if I wanted to teach a photoshop class….My answer was Phlearn.com. I am told the photoshop part of the class has gotten a lot better then it was in my day all thanks to Phlearn.

Aaron Nace and his wonderful team at Phlearn are doing some amazing things for all of us.

They always come up with great and inspiring ideas and tutorials for us to learn from. Aaron is probably the best and funniest Photoshop Master on the internet right now.

I tell all of my friends about Phlearn because I know that the wealth of knowledge you will get from them will help you 10 fold.

– Eleazar Paradise

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

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.

Phlearn helped further my technical skills in camera and on the computer because the art and design school I went to did not have the best photography program. Thankfully, I did not choose to go into photography there, but minored in it. As a Communication Designer with a passion for photography, Phlearn was the photography school I had been searching for. Conceptual, technical, 24/7, and most of all, taught by a young and passionate professional in the industry who knows his craft.

Phlearn, you are doing something great and I believe you are changing lives because you help guide people who lack artistic vision to experts who have been in the industry for years.

Proud to be part of the Phamily!

I absolutely LOVE Phlearn. It is the #1 site I recommend to anyone wanting to learn about photography or Photoshop. There is just no comparison to the amount of information you get, the quality of it, and the entertainment you get along the way is a big bonus! Aaron Nace is a truly likeable person who very deftly explains sometimes complicated skills in a way that’s very easy to grasp. I was good at Photoshop before I discovered Phlearn, but it has taught me SO MUCH. After nearly episode, I find myself exclaiming, “Holy shit, I had no idea!” about some technique or another.

I love the free episodes they make every week, but, my god, the Pro Tutorials are just unbelievable. I have purchased a number of them, including the Nude Flying Fairy and Dark Skies, and the trove of information you get for the price is just unbelievable. Aaron does a spectacular job at breaking down the steps of the photo, making what might seem like an overwhelming edit easy to digest in bite-sized chunks. The level of detail he goes into makes the techniques you learn in each tutorial applicable to any situation you might find yourself in.

You leave each tutorial feeling like a whole new world of Photoshop has been opened up to you that you never knew existed. And better still, if you find you can’t quite remember how a particular bit was done, you can replay the video any time you need a refresher. Aaron’s playful personality makes all these tutorials so fun; it’s like a good friend is in the room with you, helping you understand the task at hand, and never judging.

In short, Phlearn is just THE BEST Photoshop/photography site around, period. After you go through a tutorial, your work will never be the same.

– Sarah Allegra

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

I have only recently come to learn about Phlearn and Aaron Nase and boy, has this combo changed my world!

Having come from a CGI/3D animation background, I’ve long used Photoshop but in a very different way to how PS is used in photo manipulation and photography. The thing about Photoshop is that it can be used in so many different applications across multiple industries. These Phlearn tutorials are just so incredibly helpful even to a seasoned PS user such as myself.

I take my hat off to Aaron for being so generous with sharing his vast knowledge and experience with the software. I have never come across any other teacher who has been so thorough and in-depth with instruction. The tutorials are low-cost and Aaron has been so kind to offer this exceptional education to the general public.

If you have always dreamed about being able to perform magic with your photos, then you will not be disappointed with what Phlearn has to offer!

– Mark Soon

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!

– Dean Bradshaw

As a photographer, I’m constantly working to hone my skills so I can create better and better work for myself and my clients – Phlearn Pro and the community here are an essential part of this. I’ve spent countless hours and dollars on photography classes but I recommend Phlearn time and time again because I haven’t found a better, more up-to-date, or affordable source of Photoshop knowledge than what’s available right here.

There are plenty of talented photographers who are mediocre teachers and plenty of gifted teachers without photographic talent. Aaron Nace doesn’t have either of those problems

– Chris Owyoung

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

I discovered Phlearn not so long ago. And I have to say I got totally addicted.
I’v been watching all the Photoshop episodes since from the beginning. I learned so much new stuff.
And I like the 10 minutes format. Easy to digest!

Today I got my 1st Phlearn Pro, the Film Noir. Can wait to watch it…

You rock Phlearn!

– Guillaume Megevand

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 appreciate the quality/thoroughness of the pro tutorials here at Phlearn. They are a phenomenal value for the money. I should know — so far I’ve purchased 11 of them.

I’ve purchased many photoshop tutorials and PHLEARN is (in my opinion), are the best value for the money by FAR.Love the entire Phlearn site as well. If there is time in my day to only check out one site, It’s going to be PHLEARN.

Thanks to you and your team for all you do!

– Jeff Whitlock

PHLEARN is awesome!

First off, Aaron is a character. I’ve watched a lot of other photoshop tutorials, but Aaron keeps it entertaining, supportive, and positive. All of that is really important for creating a learning environment that has worked for me. It’s weird – watching a PHLEARN PRO episode is super-entertaining. I might honestly watch them even if I wasn’t trying to learn… but as Mary Poppins once said: a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down!

And does it ever! I’ve gone from being intimidated by Photoshop to feeling confident using the many different tools, techniques, and strategies that Aaron demonstrates. No, more than that – now I feel confident exploring and experimenting in Photoshop.

I want to thank Aaron and the rest of the crew at PHLEARN for what they are building, and how much they have already taught me. Thanks guys!

– Michael Petrachenko

Phlearn got me out of my own slump. I was looking to learn some new PS skills but all the resources online seemed to just be rehashed and reposted, then I found Aaron/ Phlearn.

I have learned a great deal from the site, but my favorite part is referring other people in a similar situation to the site.

– Adam Elmakias

Photographer currently living in Chicago available for assistant and retouch work. Phlearn has been a wonderful guide for the past 2 years!

– Tina Brown

I have been using Photoshop for a few years, but have just started my first 365 self-portraiture project. Wow, It takes a lot of work to make me look like I want to look. Once I found Phlearn, it was like an addiction. There is so much useful information on the site, and Aaron is truely talented and amazing (and a little crazy).

After watching hours and hours of free videos, I downloaded the retouching pack from the Pro Tutorials. There is so much information in there about what to look for, how to fix it, some truly amazing techniques made simple. Now, I just have to figure out how not to end up with a blue face, but artistically, I don’t think Aaron can teach me that. Just practice. I am at the beginning of my photography journey, but learning by leaps and bounds, thank you Phlearn, and Phlearn Pro Tutorials.

– Carrie Tucci

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.
