    Fonts & Typefaces in Design


    People love images and colours – it shows in their design and workflows time and time again but one of the most neglected and probably the most communicative if not the beautiful part of a page is the font or typeface. Using the right font or typeface is crucial to the look and feel of your whole spread.


    Find out more about fonts and how they can bolster your design work by nipping across to the Adobeblog for a brief but informative look at “Whats in a font”

    Or nip over to the Creative Blog site to find out to create your own fonts


    Fonts, type and design tips are included in my Adobe Training Courses – I will show you how to work with type to create communicative and engaging publications.


    Thank you for dropping by.

    Photoshop Photography Course

    Posted on 28th June 2017 by Greta Powell

    Photoshop Photography Training Course


    This is one of the most flexible of the Photoshop Training Courses because generally each delegate has a clear idea of exactly what they want to achieve from their course.  


    For some it could colour enhancement whereas for others its HDR or learning to use the Photoshop photography filters……..it really does depend on you.  This is a recent example of an enhanced image in Photoshop using very basic tools including levels, curves and contrast.


    I run Photoshop Courses across the UK, onsite at your premises for one to one sessions or closed company groups………….I also run Lightroom Courses or a combination of Photoshop and Lightroom Training.

    Adobe Captivate 2017

    Adobe Captivate 2017


    And today sees the release of the latest version of Captivate 2017.  Originally named magic boxes it now comes complete with fluid boxes for responsive design and gives the option for H or V box direction.






    Responsive Conversion in Captivate

    A massive addition to Captivate 2017 is ‘Responsive Conversion’ which lets you open an historic desktop delivery course then convert it to responsive in a few steps. So old courses are not headed for the bin they can be swiftly and easily moved across to a range of mobile devices.


    Multi State Buttons


    Prior to Captivate 2017 it was a faff giving objects multi states and a complete no no on Master Slides and Quiz slides – now you simply pop in a smart shape, covert it to a button and give it multiple states.  So you can do Normal, Hover, Down states with no problem on most interactive slides.


    Pop along to CAPTIVATE 2017 to see what’s new –
