    Photoshop Training in brief

    This Photoshop Course content takes between one and two days depending on the amount of people sitting on the training – for one person a day usually suffices but for small groups of between 4 and 6 people two days is more realistic.

    Adobe Training Courses Midlands

     

    It can cost a fortune getting your images tweaked and your designs laid out when many of those ‘small jobs’ can be done in-house by one or more of your staff. Just think how much you spend on external designers just to remove white backgrounds, lay out flyers, design and update your social media banners and imagery, create business stationary etc – and that’s only the tip of the iceberg. 

     

    Acquiring digital design skills to produce professional looking documents and images is not rocket science – it is straightforward and easily arranged. I provide training for 1 to 1 sessions and company groups onsite across the Midlands and the UK from as little as £275.00 per day for one delegate, subsequent delegates are £75.00 per day each. To get a team of four up to speed in digital design you would be looking at a total of *£500.00 per day.

    *Depending on location individuals may pay travel expenses

     

    Because this is private Adobe tuition you can be very selective about the content. Whether you need to create banners for social media, enhance an image or use the Interactive elements in InDesign then get in touch and we can work together to come up with the training you need (not what someone else thinks you need). If you have more specific projects such as connecting to databases to produce large catalogues then again please don’t hesitate to get in touch for an informal chat.

     

    As always

    Thank you for visiting this post
