  1. Super helpful, and very easy to follow!

  2. Thanks Aaron one of the best websites to learning Photoshop ❤️ everything done without plugins. This is pure creativity. Hope to see lots of new Compositing courses. And new guests that do the same.

  3. Thanks Aaron for these learning paths! So incredibly helpful in choosing what tutorials to focus on. Absolutely love them all!

  4. yeah, I was wondering why the courses were not structured when I first joined phlearn pro, this path curve will help a lot. and hopefully, we don’t need to be reminded about clipping masks, pen tool, and other ps basic essential stuff in the middle of an advanced class! it takes the focus away from the important things and bores too.

  5. Thanks for this Aaron. It’s really helpful to have a plan for tutorials to watch. The Lightroom learning path will be very useful too. Great work.
