Faress is a good teacher. He is very patient and kind !
I will help you get acquainted with all Photoshop options, features, shortcuts. I have had my own photography office in Lebanon, where I have utilized Photoshop on a daily basis in order to edit photos. I have been working on Photoshop since 2013. You will be off as a Photoshop expert in no time. Classes are given, online outdoor, or at the Student's place.
