Why would you need Photoshop when there are many free versions of programmes that help you to create graphics?
Individuality: whether designing for yourself or another business it is important to be confident that no other company has the same logo, colours, branding and text. This is not possible using free versions and clip art. The probability is that someone else along the line has the very same logo which can de-value a brand. Photoshop is invaluable when working on web site creation and social media posting, particularly when you are looking at styling and fixing artwork. Any digital image can be corrected or enhanced to provide the most impact and promote your work or product to a directly targeted audience.
As you increase your skills Photoshop opens the door to unlimited possibilities to express your creativity. Using emboss, bevel and drop shadow effect you can make the text visually appealing. Photos can be enhanced by tweaking brightness, contrast and sharpness and there are hundreds of brushes available and each one offers a unique effect. Additionally, traditional artists may find it valuable to have the opportunity to be able to digitally enhance or amend their artwork, giving a multimedia blend which adds a new dimension to their offer.
Photoshop is also compatible to work with using Adobe Illustrator where you can take your vector art and text to the next level. You will be just a few clicks away from showcasing your design brilliance.
Attendees are encouraged to bring laptops with access to their social media accounts. Access to adobe.
