    Just starting on this one. I was wondering if I should really take the Pro Subscription since I’m starting to know Photoshop quite well and I’ve followed many tutorials already. But each time, I keep learning new stuff that I didn’t even know I needed to learn ! Like the way to crop at 2’20… Wow ! How come I’ve never wondered about it before ? Thanks Phlearn !
