Photoshop Your Social Media

This is my flagship course for creating custom social media images.

I am assuming you know NOTHING about photoshop.

It will guide you from zero knowledge and show you how to set up from the ground up so you only use what you need. (there are so many things in photoshop it can be scary if you don't know this

If you are wanting to create superior social media images fast, without taking months to learn photoshop and the techniques that are required to generate great images, then this is for you.

More importantly, you will know which features you need to master amongst the 100’s in the programme that send most beginners into a tailspin of overwhelm.

The course is a mixture of video lessons, text files, pdf downloads and photoshop template files.

There is no time limit on the course, you go thru it at your own pace - meaning that you are under no time pressure to get it completed.

Photoshop costs under a tenner a month - this is the photographers version - it is a full and complete version of photoshop and comes with 20GB of cloud based storage for all your files. Hit me up for the link you need it….. (this is cheaper than the paid version of Canva!!)

This course is a system to teach you how to create great social media images - I use the same 5-10 processes to create images for me and my clients. It is very learnable and repeatable, I use lots of examples to get you familiar with the system so you can create on your own.

Photoshop Your Social Media costs £195 (because there are still lessons to be added - meaning YOU can get it cheaper by acting now)

On Friday 16th November (when the course will be completed and ALL the videos will be live) the price will go up, where it will sit at its final price of £295.
