A very thorough, step-by-step guide to learning a valuable set of graphics skills. If you are trying to help your online and offline clients, or simply trying to post content on Facebook, Reddit, Imgur, or anywhere a picture can tell the story better than 10,000 words, this tutorial will get you up to speed quickly. I also included the upsell graphics packs (which can be edited with free GIMP software), but you really need to learn the real deal and this is a great way to get going. Even if you are master of the Photoshop universe, can you really have too many PS tutorials? If you don't want the tutorials, make sure you grab the graphics packs. RECOMMENDED
This product is not about frying your brain with yet more useless knowledge. Itâ€™s about learning the foundation skills required to get the job done fast. By the time you have completed this course youâ€™ll have the skills & tools required to make great graphics & the core design knowledge you can easily build upon.
