Client Testimonials
Eugenio was an experienced hands on instructor. He taught us all the fundamentals of Photoshop in precise and organized lessons. The class was small and personal and it was a nice professional environment. Eugenio even gave us his contact information for any questions we may have in the future along with his Youtube channel where he uploads clear step-by-step videos. A very worthwhile opportunity. 11/05- Teri F. attended Photoshop Essentials
It was like a very condensed tin of soup - and thick in content, its full benefit is only revealed when you take time afterwards to dilute what you heard by practice, practice, practice. Like all food it has a use-by date, but I have never felt so inclined to put time aside as after this course. To continue the food analogy, it was a healthy and sustaining meal and chef Eugene deserves 5 stars and an accolade.- R.L. attended Photoshop Essentials
Just finished a Photoshop course taught by Eugenio. Wow. He is one of the best teachers I've ever had. Although clearly a world-class expert, he was so wonderful with the class of beginners. He was totally aware that most of us knew nothing about Photoshop, and therefore was extremely patient and helpful with any questions or problems we had. He explained everything slowly and completely, and then was very happy to go over any aspect we didn't comprehend until we got it. At the end of the class, he showed us several sites and tutorials to go over material, as well as giving each of us his personal contact information should we have future questions. Eugenio was an exceptional teacher, and I would take another class from him anytime. (Oh, also any NYIM classes offer free re-takes for life!) 5.0 star rating 2/5/2016- STACEY B. attended Photoshop Essentials
