    Adobe MasterClass – What you will learn…

    You work with a number of different projects. On the two day Photoshop course you work with various photographs to retouch, design and produce interesting and professional imagery.  These can be used quite fluidly on the InDesign Training to enhance layouts and spreads.  The two InDesign Training days introduce you to layout and spreads incorporating Photoshop and Illustrator images.  These include flyers, corporate literature, brochures, tenders and so forth (this depends on what you need to learn for your particular work). The Illustrator Training Course introduces you to the basics of the software and teaches techniques to work with tools and panels to create vector driven graphics such as logos and infographics.  This content can be used as a baseline and you can specify exactly what content you want including prior to the training.


    Onsite MasterClass Training Locations


    This is onsite training which means the dates and times are totally flexible. Being centrally based in the Midlands means location is not a restriction for onsite training as I travel extensively across the UK including all major cities and surrounding area’s including: Bradford, Oxford, York, Doncaster, Derby, Cheltenham, Chester, Liverpool, The Wirral, Coventry, Nottingham, Sheffield, Lincoln, Stoke.
