EVERYBODY can create great images with Photoshop. You don’t need me for that. But few can acheive the quality results they or their employers or customers are looking for in 5 Minutes or less. Time is money. It ought to be YOUR money. Most times I ask a designer “How long would you estimate it will take to create this or that,” they quote 4 hours to 2 weeks. If it's more than 5 minutes, you're working too hard. Join us, and start dialing-up your profitability!
