Nice, clear and easy to understand instruction on color grading using Photoshop. This subject is one of topics that I have longed to learn for so long and this course provides me the learning opportunity.

Course was instructive and easy to follow and I was able to apply the principles of the editing methods to the images even using different software packages.

Yes. Although I'm familiar with much of the material thus far, I am already learning new things (copying adjustment layers to another image? Who knew?! :) ).
