Photoshop Training for Web Graphics

Theory was explained well and moved straight into practical applications which was what I was looking for. I enjoyed being able to participate at my own level as well as being shown what advanced processes would look like.

Course Feedback

Good all round training of Photoshop which was tailored to the class well because it was a small group. It felt tailored to our needs but it was clear that there was still structure to what we learnt.
