Why hasn't the video been updated to the current versions of Photoshop?

Over a year ago people were complaining about updating the video according to the current versions of Photoshop. It makes it very frustrating having to spend more time figuring photoshop out on other sites while paying for this one.

On the other hand, some of us are still using versions older than the one already taught here. :wink:

Photoshop has barely changed at all from what is visible in the videos. I'm using the latest PhotoShop CC 2017. The version in the video is CS5, not even CC (Creative Cloud)! With that said though, the layout is the same and each video corresponds with my modern layout. Indeed the BIGGEST difference I see, is simply the color scheme. I use the dark color scheme which makes the user interface dark grey, and she uses the light color scheme which makes the user interface light grey. No biggy. They shouldn't have to spend hours rerecording to reflect such minor differences.

I can understand the frustration, but keeping up-to-date with something like that would be quite costly and time consuming for them. I don't know their budget for a course or any of that, but I would figure they could only update a course once every year or every other year. It sounds like it's been awhile for that one though, so maybe they could do it again soon.
