    Adobe Captivate Training – Yorkshire

    Well Huddersfield in the heart of West Yorkshire to be precise. As of 24 August we are over the moon to be out and about delivering Onsite Captivate Training Courses again. What with our two day Illustrator Training Course in Nottingham earlier in the week then two days Adobe Captivate Training in Yorkshire its been a busy week. Which is great, it truly has been wonderful being back in training rooms with our delegates.

     

    So carrying on from the previous post a little about this weeks Captivate Course.

    Onsite Adobe Courses

    As of the 24th of August we are now out and about delivering onsite Adobe courses again. And we’re pleased to say this first week back has been a busy one. We thought it might be an idea to post a bit of an update about what we’re up to post lock-down and how our onsite Adobe training went this week. So two courses over four days, the first two Illustrator in Nottingham, the second Adobe Captivate in Huddersfield. It was great to be back in training rooms with our delegates. Regardless of training its been really good to be back with people again.

    Adobe Lightroom Photo Editing

    Just using the built-in presets and basic tools for Adobe Lightroom Photo Editing gives pretty amazing effects with a few clicks of the mouse. However if you want to up your game there are plenty of advanced techniques and features you can use such as Lightroom’s Adjustment Brush panel. 

     

    Adobe Lightroom Adjustment Brush

    The Adjustment Brush is one of the most powerful tools in Lightroom and accessed via the Develop tab. Using Adjustment Brushes lets you isolate and edit areas of the image and apply effects such as colour, retouching and toning to those individual sections

    Photoshop Retro Training

    So during these last few weeks the focus has been on getting the courses delivered online and finally there seems to be headway. People seem to be taking advantage of the small bite sized chunks – they can just ring in or email with a problem and depending on the situation either hook up immediately or make a time later in the day.

    Microsoft Teams & Creative Cloud Assets

    Microsoft Teams & Creative Cloud Assets are one of the more powerful ways in which Greta Powell Training is delivering live instructor online training. It has to be said Microsoft Teams has been a god send. We’re now starting to see some of the main questions delegates ask prior to booking online training with the main ones being how do I use my software in conjunction with Microsoft Teams.

     

    As online training is new to many we thought it might be an idea to write a series of blog posts on Microsoft Teams and the online training process covering some of the questions. We will also be recording a full Microsoft Teams tutorial which will be online in the next few days. 

     

    Teams is not just about chat and screen sharing it also provides a myriad of other opportunities such as……………………………………

    Online Graphics Training

    With travel and meetings being curtailed by the Corona Virus and overall interaction between people becoming more limited we are offering more online live instructor led training to compensate. Why miss out on your training course? There are no geographical boundaries with live online training so you can learn without leaving the comfort of your chair in your office or home – well anywhere that has a screen in fact. 

     

    Covid 19 – Information

    Many people think that because they’re on Furlough they’re not allowed to go on training courses, online or otherwise. You can go on training – pop along to the Gov website to see what you can and can’t do.

    Photoshop or Lightroom Training?

    Posted on 16th February 2020 by Greta Powell

    Photoshop or Lightroom Training?

    The question is exactly what do you want to do with your image editing software. Obviously you want to edit photographs but when making the choice between Photoshop or Lightroom training you need to be a little more specific. Do you want to simply edit images, do you work with large amounts of images, want to create graphics, design social media images and animated GIF’s the list seems almost never-ending.

     

    Which do you choose? The answer to that is it really depends on is what you need to do and the particular project /s at hand. So this is a post listing the key parts of each piece of software and their use in certain projects. 

     

    In this post we take a look at both pieces of software and way up the pros and cons. Incidentally Adobe provide a number of different subscription options over on their website you can choose from.

    Premier Pro Lumetri Panels

    Premier Pro Lumetri Panels

    Over and over again colour is mentioned on Premier Pro Courses. On these Greta Powell Training Courses we use the Premier Pro Lumetri Panels for retouching and changing colour schemes within the video. Before even venturing into the colour panels we always clear up the difference between colour grading and colour correction. They are not one and the same thing. Colour grading means you add creative colour to your project whereas colour correction means giving balance, exposure and ‘true’ representation of colour.
