Updating the Photo Restoration Basics Course

Photo Restoration Basics DVD and workbook
A Timeless Educational Tool
In the summer of 2009 I completed a video and workbook version of my Photo Restoration Basics course. It was a big milestone.

Almost 4 years in the making, I really wanted to make the presentation free of specific versions of Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Photoshop Elements. In fact, I teach many concepts that transcend Adobe products in general. Although it's not as popular as I hoped it would be, it has been successful with helping people work on their photos.

Currently, I'm going through the video course to find things I might need to update, append or remove. Since Adobe has infuriated me and many other formerly-loyal customers, I see a few spots that could use screenshots and or instructions with more user-centric alternatives to Photoshop and Photoshop Elements such as:

Photoline
Gimp 

Besides seeing myself in the lecture portions with a full head of hair, I frankly have not found anything in need of changing. I am also working on putting together a version of the course that can be purchased and downloaded online.

However, as a student—or purchaser of the course—I would like to know your feedback. I know some of you are still trying to find time to indulge in the course. So when you get time, please post your comments. I really need to know what you think.
