Our online training is designed to re-create the classroom experience as closely as possible. It is a live training session using Zoom or Teams and the trainer is there throughout. The training is still hands-on so you do need to have the software installed on your own computer. The trainer shares their screen to demonstrate techniques and there is also the option of being able to share your screen if you are really stuck! Depending on the class size, which we still keep to a maximum of 8, questions can be asked at any time or at set points throughout the day.

The trainers like to see you! They much prefer it if you have a camera on so they can see you as well as you them.

We provide everything that you will need for a fun, productive day of training.

Everyone has their own computer to work on in a comfortable, bright, air conditioned room.

We provide plenty of tea, coffee & biscuits, and a USB stick so that you can take files home with you.

We provide 6 months of post course support as well.

If you get stuck on anything relating to the course simply get in touch and explain the issue.

We will make sure your trainer contacts you as soon as possible to help you out.

We don’t want to be the biggest training company but we are trying to be the best.

We have now won the Feefo Gold Award for customer service for 6 years in a row.

We always limit our classes to a maximum of 8 delegates but try to keep them smaller. During 2018 our average class size was 4 people.

To back up our promise of great training we offer a 100% money back guarantee.

Our focus is on you being a faster, more capable Photoshop user when you return to work.

Our courses combine traditional teaching to explain new concepts and tools with hands-on exercises.

The exercises ensure that you get plenty of time to try out what you have just been taught and make sure that you really understand it.

We also make sure that there is plenty of time for you to ask questions in case there is anything you are unsure of.

PhotoShop creates pixel-based images that are then saved as TIFF, JPEG, PNG etc… resulting in quality issues if later resized. We cover the differences in graphics file formats in our introduction to Photoshop training course.

Illustrator is used to create and edit vector based graphics… shapes, lines and text… which are not pixel based, and so are scalable and always pin-sharp… ideal for logos, icons, diagrams, maps and plans etc. These graphics are normally saved as AI, EPS, or SVG files, and retain their vector properties. However, Illustrator files can also be saved as JPEG and PNG etc, and will then become pixel based, making them ideal for the web.

Adobe Photoshop costs under £10/month on a Creative Cloud subscription and includes Adobe Lightroom.

Yes, they are covered in our beginners Photoshop course. A good understanding of Layers is essential for being creative with PhotoShop.

Of course… once you have a good working knowledge of Layers!

No… PhotoShop is practically identical on Mac and Windows platforms.

We will provide every attendee with a Certificate to prove you are capable using the software.

Come dressed in your most comfortable and casual clothing.

Our advanced Photoshop course covers actions.

Actions are extremely useful. They allow you to automate repetitive tasks and so can save you huge amounts of time when working with large numbers of images.

The Advanced Image Adjustment section of our Photoshop course for advanced users covers this in great detail. Obviously other techniques can be used for image retouching but they often produce less good results.

Our London training centre is very centrally located in the City of London.

It is a 3-minute walk from both Blackfriars tube station and Thameslink station.
