  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    I have been a PSE digital scrapper for 8 years and I was always afraid to use brushes other than the eraser brush. I didn’t understand how to use them or load them so they remained in my presets. Then, this year, I took some of Anna Aspnes’ classes which explained using brushes and how to keep them loaded. I felt so good about myself that I enrolled in her Advanced Brushes course. Now I’m almost “brush crazy”!! I don’t hesitate to use brushes to mask or create splotches of paint or to color with in order to change b/g colors. I even learned that the eraser can be used with any loaded brush. I’m so grateful that Anna presented this class for PSE users.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    I was a complete brush-a-phobe when I enrolled in this class, meaning that brushes scared me to the point that I used the png files rather than the actual brushes themselves, and when I did use my png brush files, I did so in the most basic fashion. No more. Thanks to this class, my inner brush-ista has been released. These days I find myself reaching for brushes (the real ones, not the pngs) in every composition I create and often muttering to myself “who knew, who knew?” I particularly appreciate that this class delivered the basics I needed to establish a firm foundation and then took off from there into the world of creative brushology. That’s why, in addition to learning how to use brushes for maximum creative impact, this former brush-a-phobe can now clone things in and out of designs with impunity, wield the eraser and other tools with confidence, and even make custom (color) brushes. The information sticks because you learn it in the hands-on context of page layouts; because Anna is demonstrating every technique, you see what can go wrong–and how to troubleshoot, cycle through options, and get out of the tight spots that we all find ourselves in. So valuable. If I need a refresher on the finer points (and more complex techniques), as I trundle along in my creative journey, I simply have to review the pertinent lessons. It’s all in there. As always in her classes, Anna has delivered more than she promised in this one. Highly recommended.

    This video series is fabulous! Anna starts by teaching the most basic things about Photoshop brushes. Like how to adjust the brush curser for maximum visibility, how to locate the brush tool and change from one brush to about a million others. Then she moves on to teach about adding color, fade techniques, and much, much more. After that she opens up another whole world of possibilities: creating your own brushes from your own photos! The videos are so packed with techniques and info, that after 5 months, I still play them to refresh my memory and to inspire new ways to make my layouts more interesting and beautiful. So amazingly helpful!!!
