  • All I can say is you are making me love Photoshop. There is probably many people who are brilliant at using Photoshop, however it doesn't make them good teachers, but this is where Martin Perhiniak SHINES! You are an amazing teacher, thank you so much. I love my media and web design course but without your tutorials it would be much more difficult.

  • "Martin Perhiniak not only knows his stuff, he knows how to make YOU know his stuff. I didn't have a clue about Photoshop when I started Martin's course. I'm not a "design person", and Photoshop has always been just out of reach. Thanks to Martin, I learned enough to make Photoshop do useful things. He didn't waste my time with interface tours or background blabbery. Martin taught a practical, hands-on course, and I look forward to his next one."

I have been doing things the hard way for a very long time, so these newly discovered techniques will save me a whole lot of time! I am forever grateful!"
