I enjoyed your video. How do I leave a comment?

Because YouTube is a haven for trolls and abuse, I've decided to disable comments on some of my videos. If you liked one of my videos, but are unable to leave a comment, you can show your appreciation by doing the following:



What tablet should I buy? / Is this a good tablet?

I have several videos reviewing and comparing tablets on my YouTube channel. I also have a list of recommended tablets here.


How much is this tablet? / Recommend a tablet that is in this price range...

Look on Amazon or do a google search. You should be able to research prices yourself.


I have a question about one of your courses...

Please ask your course-related question in the course forum. There is a link in the course resource files under "Instructions".


I have a question about your Corel Painter 2017 workspace...

I have a question about Corel Painter...

Please search my YouTube channel or take my Corel Painter training course. If your question is tech support related, contact Corel for assistance.
