    Based on the amount of time we had, I thought we learned a great deal of Photoshop! As someone who has never used Photoshop, I was able to get an understanding of the fundamentals and I feel I will be able to "hold my own" when using the software. Of course, I will need to learn more, but for what it was, I think it was great!
