Adobe Illustrator + Photoshop Primer


Learn the basics of both Adobe Illustrator AND Photoshop to kick start your design skills with these world-leading applications.

These very different applications are part of every designer's skillset. Illustrator is used to create scalable vector graphics that can be used at any size. Adobe Photoshop is a bitmap (pixel-based) program which was originally designed for working with photos but now can do so much more.

Learning to use both together, is extremely useful for different types of graphics and an ideal way to get started with both applications.

Really having fun with the designs and just love using the mac, never ever thought I would be saying that!
Thanks again for your invaluable help couldn’t have got this far without you!


Tina was a good Teacher, she was very patient and knowledgable. The class was very relaxed, the day went by in a flash and I learnt a lot. The course was was taught on a one-to-one basis. I would certainly book another!

Tina is a superb trainer and tailored a course to fit my needs as a jeweller to be able to translate my ideas through illustrator for my clients. Covering all the basic topics we went on to expand into more advanced areas and included Photoshop. Having taught me basic Photoshop we were able to tidy up my bad habits. Tina went far beyond the course expectations and included a wealth of essential guidance on web and websites. Set in idyllic surroundings of the uninterrupted landscape I was able to dedicate my time to learning in the beautifully comfortable training suite.
