  • “This was the first time I have touched Photoshop and I feel pretty comfortable about using it already.”

    Aya Zakeyan

  • “After using Photoshop for a number of years, I realized I could probably work more efficiently and effectively. I discovered so many new tricks and features in Noble's Advanced Photoshop class that the first 1/2 day alone was worth the tuition. In addition to enhancing my technical expertise, I learned to analyze my projects first to determine which method(s) and tools would work best in that instance. This was awesome!!”

    MaryRose learned advanced retouching techniques in our Photoshop Advanced class.

  • “Noble Desktop makes it so straightforward and easy to learn Photoshop, even if you have never opened the program before. Their watch and learn first approach is excellent as the instructor will guide you step by step through each exercise before then going through it yourself. This allows for each lesson to really be covered twice, helping you to take in each aspect of the program better.”
