What does the course involve?
The course will spend three weeks each on the three software applications; Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. It is an entirely practical course with lots of opportunities throughout each week to explore the possibilities of each package, starting with editing, retouching and adding text to photographs.

The course tutor has experience of using these packages with first time users.
There are no entry requirements for this course, just a keen interest in extending your computing skills to include graphic design packages.
