Software

The course provides an overview of graphic design-specific programs included in the Adobe Creative Suite, looking at the purpose of each, how they complement each other and work together as a whole. You'll learn to select the correct application for the task and practice using them together to achieve the best results.

Photoshop: We take you through basic image manipulation, drawing and painting.
