Announcement: Photoshop Basics I class – by Darrel Priebe

A note from Darrel Priebe about his Photoshop Basics I class being offered in Westlake Village, California. You can contact Darrel at

Due to popular demand, I have opened up another section of the Photoshop Basics I class. The morning class has sold out, so I am offering an afternoon class on the same days, January 8th and 22nd, from 1pm to 4pm. The class meets for 3 hours on each day.

If you are interested, please let me know right away. Given the short notice, I am extending the offer of the 10% class discount for those registering and sending payment before December 31st so the cost of the class will be $89 if registering before Dec 31, and $99 if registering after.

Looking forward to seeing you there! As always, please call or email if you have any questions.
