Photoshop Masterclass + GFX Megapack Review
Hi Designers, Webmasters & Marketers, have you ever been let down because of a graphic designer or paid a small fortune for graphics? If so then then you’re not alone. There’s nothing more frustrating than waiting for designs especially if you’re running an on line business.
In 2003 I was brought to work on a web project with an superb graphic designer who would show me a few cool tricks & shortcuts which I still. But, what I would learn since are skills necessary to do almost any web graphics task. Nowadays I only send large complex jobs to outsourcers & do everything else myself. So no more delays, no more sending stuff back for adjustments no more fat fees.
Make Graphics Quicker Than Writing an Email…
So, whether you need to make a quick change to some artwork or design something from scratch, I would like to show you the foundation skills you need to get the job done. In fact you’ll find that making graphics is quicker than writing an email an outsourcer. Firstly though, let me debunk a few common myths…
Myth #1 – “Photoshop’s Expensive”
Nope…You can get the latest CC version is just $8 per month & low cost versions if you attend full time education..You can also buy older versions like Photoshop CS2 for approx $50 on Ebay. Photoshop versions CS2 and above have the same core functionality. So you don’t need to take out a second mortgage to get going.
Myth #2 – “Photoshop is difficult”
Not True…Whilst all the functions & menus may look daunting initially, they are in fact extremely simple, logical & consistent from version to version – the trick is knowing which tools to use for each task & shortcuts that make tasks easier.
Myth #3 – “It Takes Years to Learn”
False…That’s what some highly paid designers may want you to think. In reality you can learn the key elements in about 2 hours & the pro tricks in about an hour. It’s from this foundation knowledge you can truly become an expert!
