Description

This short course introduces PowerPoint as an all-in-one graphics editing app. Most people don’t know of the many tools and tricks built into PowerPoint. Learning these means you are unlikely to ever never need those expensive and complex graphics apps or worse, an expensive graphic designer.

In this course, we will learn how to edit images for your website including background graphics and blog post images. We will look at how to create an effective busines logo as well as some tips for some new and interesting Instagram styles. It’s an all-in-one graphics solution.

As always, the mantra here is ‘Getting Things Done’. That means not wasting time or money on things we don’t need to get the job done. If you follow these tips, you’ll soon be producing professional images for your business without the need for outsourcing.

It’s both very useful for your business and works as a little creative outlet.

Who this course is for:
  • Anyone building a small business blog, website or social following. Any business that would benefit from better graphics.
