Adobe Photoshop courses

Photoshop is the most powerful digital imaging application available and it's used by pretty much everyone. From optimising images and assets for the Web through to photographic retouching, print, digital design and 3D composition, Photoshop does it all. Edit and merge images from multiple sources, or start with a blank canvas and design/create from scratch.

I offer two standard Photoshop courses. Course content can be customised, combined and tailored to your specific requirements. So, if you wanted to learn how to create images for EDMs, but also how to print a flyer, that would be fine.
