    What is Photoshop?

    Posted on 3rd June 2019 by Greta Powell

    What is Photoshop?

    Photoshop has been around since the 80’s and is often described as the industry standard photo editing app. In essence what it does is create, edit and enhance photography for a multitude of purposes for both the business or home user.

     

    Online Photoshop Training

    As well as an Onsite Photoshop Training you can now learn online via your computer. This is live Online Photoshop training where you have full contact with your trainer, can share screens and ask questions and work with your trainer just as if you were in a traditional training room.

     

    You can do this in bite sized smaller training chunks or over a day or two and its fine for either one to one sessions or small groups.

    What’s it used for?

    The answer to that is how long is a piece of string? It can be used in photo production for editing huge amounts of photos, to lightly edit business images, create animated GIF’s, edit basic videos, design social media icons and create digital artwork similar to paintings. It truly is huge.

     

    What is a raster & what is a vector?

    In short raster refers to a photograph (pixels) whilst vector refers to a drawn piece of artwork. So for example if David Bailey had to pick one he’d opt for Photoshop whereas Vincent Van Gogh would go for Illustrator.

    Tailored InDesign Training

    Tailored InDesign Training

    Here at Greta Powell Training we specialise with tailored and bespoke training courses. This particular course was Tailored InDesign Training which was delivered for the administration team at a large school in Worcestershire who we’ve worked with before. Although held as an introduction to InDesign Course the team’s main objectives were editing and updating of templates and current working documents.

     

    The majority of delegates were migrating from Microsoft and completely new to Adobe software so we followed an Introduction to InDesign course outline but tailored the hands on work around the school literature. During the day we designed small flyers, leaflets, event hand-outs and pamphlets.
