I wanted to make the tutorial available to everyone regardless of the version of Photoshop they're currently using and also regardless of experience level. So, for those not currently subscribing to the Creative Cloud I've recorded alternative 'work around' videos and for those with hearing challenges or who find it easier to read English as opposed to listen to English, I have fully transcribed (with timings) all 15 videos (up to 1.5 hours of content)

    I recently purchased “Home Guard”. It was by far the best money I have spent on educational programs! The method of instruction by Glyn is superb and the amount of work files and extras is excellent. This package gave me the skills to create the look I have been striving for! Thanks Glyn, I will be purchasing more of your products!
