  1. Great tutorials.Simple and straightforward. I've been looking for something like this for a while. Many thanks!Awesome! Excellent tutorial.

  2. Color #fffff is Cyan not White. White is #ffffffff
    I liked this tutorial but my student's found it a little difficult to follow as you sometimes call your layers and photos by the wrong name.
    There are times when you tell us to work on one layer but you switch to another layer without telling us that the new layer needs to be selected. Otherwise a good tutorial and my students enjoyed it.
