Whether you want to believe it or not, selections are one of the most versatile and fundamental aspects of Photoshop.

What Students Say About My Courses


I found the section on selection tool foundation and go-to selection tools very helpful. I didn’t know how to “properly” use several of the tools. I like that you mentioned times when a particular method/tool would not work (e.g. channels with the low contrast hair/background).

So far, I’m enjoying the course and even used what you taught me to assist my sister and niece in selecting them out of photos to use for a graduation invitation and awards booklet.

The course is taught in the latest version of Photoshop CC at the time of recording.

The techniques outlined in this course may not apply to all aspects of older versions of Photoshop, such as CS6.

I do not recommend purchasing this course if you use Photoshop Elements or Photoshop Express.

Yes. There is a huge focus on using layer masks throughout this course. Many lessons discuss how to use and refine them to improve your selections.

If you still feel uncertain about working with selections, this course will ensure you walk away feeling 110% confident.

However, you may feel like you have the hang of selections after working through 21DPSE. If so, this course would only be necessary if you want to deepen your selection skills.

21DPSE gives you a holistic approach to learning and using Photoshop from square one. Although it has several lessons on selections, it covers only what’s necessary without going too in-depth in all areas of selections.

For example, it skips less important selection tools, doesn’t mention advanced selection tactics for transparent or semi-transparent objects, and has fewer projects and written resources to solidify your selection skills.

Ultimately, if you feel at all uneasy about working with selections, Selections Made Simple is for you.

Yes, the course has English subtitles in every lesson. The video players also have speed controls if you prefer a slower pace for your videos.

Yup, but there’s a trade-off.

Although there are thousands of videos covering selections on Youtube, it’s the sheer volume of content that makes it difficult to sift through. As you know, Photoshop tutorials online differ DRASTICALLY in quality. Often, the videos are poorly explained and outdated, or nobody answers your question in the comments. The list of challenges goes on.

With a course like Selections Made Simple, there’s nothing to sift through and “hope” you find the answer. Instead, everything is laid out in an approachable, step-by-step format that anyone can follow. With follow-along projects to practice everything you learn, along with a community to get any of your questions answered. It’s a place where you can focus on your skills rather than searching the internet for hit-and-miss tutorials.

For some, they’d prefer to invest their time to find the answers on Youtube, even if it’s a long and frustrating process.

For others, the amount of time saved by taking this course is worth every penny. Plus, with lifetime access, you can look at this course as a resource you can continue to use for years to come.

Yes! Although this course is focused specifically on selections, every lesson is explained in a way that doesn’t assume you already know a technique or tool. Every video builds off the last so by working through the lessons in order, you’ll feel confident with your abilities, even when starting from square one.

Yes! I am proud to offer an industry-leading 90-day guarantee on this course.

If you aren’t happy with this course within 90 days of purchase and you have completed less than 50% of the course, you are eligible for a full refund. If you have watched more than 50% of the course contents, you are only eligible for a full refund within 30 days of purchase.

Just email [email protected] and I will personally process your return.

The course consists of video modules that you can find in your Student Dashboard, available at courses.bwillcreative.com/login once you have enrolled.

The student dashboard is online and can be accessed from any device at any time.

The course is 47 lessons and 370 minutes long (6.1 Hours). It has 35 follow along projects and 11,000+ words of cheat sheet material to supplement the video lessons.

This course is aimed to help beginner and intermediate Photoshop users master simple to advanced selections. Offering an extremely in-depth and complete view of all the selection options in Photoshop.

If you are already confident using selections in Photoshop, this course won’t be as valuable to you.

This course is not affiliated with or financially supported by Adobe.

DISCLAIMER: Please understand these results are not typical. I am not implying you’ll duplicate them (or do anything for that matter). The average person who buys “how to” information gets little to no results. Your results will vary and depend on many factors including but not limited to your background, experience, and work ethic. All techniques learned in this course require practice once they are understood. This is not a quick-fix shortcut to selection mastery, but rather a guide to build your skills in a progressive and approachable manner. If you’re not willing to accept that, please DO NOT PURCHASE THE SELECTIONS MADE SIMPLE COURSE.
