Here's a sampling of what some of GrafX Design's visitors are writing to us in recent emails...

Hi - I would just like to thank you for your tutorials that you provide. Usually I find a lot of people's tutorials complicated, but yours are great, easy to understand and follow - thank you for being so accurate on all of your steps! I found them most helpful, and will return to this site in the future! :)
I just wanted to let you know that I found your site last night while trying to take an online assessment of my photoshop skills. Thanks to you I passed my test. Now I've come back to your site to actually learn what you are teaching.
Thank you so much.
First, I would like to thank you for, not only your article, but, for your straight-forward, easy to understand method of writing. I have bookmarked it and will get back to it for consumption later today. The reason that I am writing to you is that I have been searching for articles and tutorials that will help a 58 year old photographer make the transition from the wet darkroom to the digital age. Many years of working with film, that I love, and now digital makes a tough transition for some of us not raised in the digital age. Anti-Aliasing and aliasing are terms that held mystery for me when I started trying to understand Photoshop and all that is surrounding that medium. You have simplified it and made it perfectly understandable. This is a departure from what I consider the overwrought " see, I have expertise and a large ego" writing that permeates other tutorials I have tried to study.

Thank you and please let me know if you have other articles on the boil. Gratefully,
TCrowe-Glen Ellen Photography
