    I have been using Photoshop since Photoshop 3.0. I worked at The National Geographic Society for 40 years and was in charge of switching everything in the Photo Reproduction area from conventional to digital production. As the training Supervisor ,my duties were to keep abreast of all the latest advances and techniques in Photoshop. Even after all this time I am still learning and discovering new things about what most consider the Basics. I really enjoy all your videos and have expanded my knowledge. Things are so much easier now than in the days of what I called the Wild West of Photoshop and production methods.
