    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.

    Premier Pro Training Course

    Premier Pro Training Course

    Premier Pro Training Courses - Midlands and UK Wide onsite training

    Terrific feedback from a recent Premier Pro Training Course held for one of my clients. This was an Introduction to Premier Pro course tailored around the marketing needs requested by the client at the beginning of the brief. Held over two days content was sourced from the company themselves who had generated their own videos and was then put together with various clips in Premier as a training scenario. During the training we worked with editing the sound, adding voice overs and applying transitions and PIP’s to ‘jazz’ up the video.

    Photoshop Select Subject

    Posted on 25th February 2018 by Greta Powell

    Photoshop CC 2018 Select Subject

    At long last here is the new Select Subject Tool in Photoshop CC 2018 which, as its name suggests lets you select the main subject of the photo usually an animal or person but with a single click after which you go into Select and Mask to refine the subject selection. It’s all thanks to Adobes new ‘AI’ technology known as Adobe Sensei which is behind the Adobe Stock search engine. Enough of the technical already and lets take a look at how it works.

    Prezi Training

    Posted on 18th August 2017 by Greta Powell

    With the recent update to Prezi I can now provide Prezi Next training. Recently released from Prezi this version, unlike its predecessor runs on HTML 5 technology.


    So what is Prezi Next and how does it differ from Classic Prezi?


    In essence the earlier versions of Prezi were Flash based, which is considered by many to be an unsafe and dated technology so something new was needed that would work well on numerous devices – Prezi Next now runs on HTML5 which holds promise for more features to be included in future versions.
