  • “If you've waded into Photoshop alone and need some help getting out of certain weedy areas, this course will set you on the right path. Excellent coverage of fundamentals and non-intuitive functions will pique your interest to take the extended class.”

“I wanted to learn a lot in a short amount of time, but didn't want to sacrifice the quality of learning. The small class sizes, the knowledgeable teachers, and the hands-on training is what sold me on Noble Desktop. The experience they have in the real world and what I learned is what brought me back.”

Students completing Photoshop exercises

Learn then Practice

“I like Noble's format. The demonstrations let you see what you can do, and the exercises that follow each one let you do it, while it's fresh in your mind. You can get your questions answered right then, rather than when you get home and actually start doing design. The instructors are great too, and the pace is just right.”
Shawn Fain, Network Administrator
