Why is it called 'essentials'?
We firmly believe in teaching skills that are actually useful and usable in everyday graphics that business owners will use. So no, we will not be teaching you how to change hair colour or eye colour, but focusing more on essential skills!
I don't have Adobe Photoshop...
We will require all students to have already installed a copy of Adobe Photoshop in their computers. The full version of Adobe Photoshop CC or the free trial version of it can be found here. We recommend you install the program on your laptops just 1-2 days prior to the class to make the full use of the trial.
Do I need to know any coding before I join?
There will not be any coding for this class!
