Not very funny. Also frequently gets behind on posting grades online and once told me I was failing and that I had to come to make up classes only to find out he had me confused with another student.

Great professor, fun and energetic. Helps you when you need it. He has lots of good stories and advice for how to profit from photo shop skills. He gives short quizzes every week but tells you what to study. I'm glad I took the class! Still using what I learned

Photoshop I is an introduction to using Adobe Photoshop software. Professor was a guru, knows the program inside and out and is on top of the newest released versions. Enthusiastic, never dull, fun class, but demanding projects will take time to create and polish, but give the students real hands on time to learn the basics of Photoshop.

Keeps the photoshop class interesting, lets students explore within fairly minimal guidelines. If you apply yourself, you at times have the opportunity for extra credit (at least when I was in class) and he's willing to explain everything in itty bitty steps if you're techno-illiterate.

Not much to say about Tom other than he's an AMAZING guy and a fabulous professor! I had him for Photoshop 1 and will be taking his class again for Photoshop 2. He always had a great attitude, a smile on his face and always made class fun and exciting. I'd definately recommend him to anyone! :)

:) You have to love the Auch. Tom does a great job of teaching Photoshop. He's very throrough and friendly, and he patiently helps anyone who has trouble. Or, if you're like me and you get ahead, he doesn't mind too much if you work on your own stuff as long as you know what you need to. Lots of fun.

Tom Auch is crazy about photoshop, he constantly goes off on tangents, and studders with excitement over photoshop tools. Be careful, he describes the healing brush tool icon as a hotdog and the magic wand tool icon as a lollipop, i think its a sign pointing to a strange obsession. overall great and entertaining teacher.

I don't really pay attention, so I don't do the best on the quzzies, but doing the work is fun and cool, my mom now wants to take a photoshop back home in east lansing.

Tom is a really good teacher. Being in his class is fun. He does have a tendancy to use God's name in vain though.
