Skill Level Intermediate
Performance is more than just hardware performance and optimization, it's workflow as well. And so with that in mind, I wanted to just pass on a couple of other courses that I think are really important for workflow. There's a great new one on Photoshop CC Selections and Layer Masking. Which are things that we touched on in the course. This one's by Tim Gray. I've got one of my own on insider training enhancing photos general overview of how to do really cool things with your images. And then Deke McClelland's got a great one on Photoshop CC, and intermediate course, where he does well only what Deke can and goes real deep on a variety of features.
So hopefully those'll round out the performance optimization with some workflow optimization. Thanks a lot.
