Description

This course uses a hands-on approach and is very targeted in it’s application. Although a basic orientation guide is offered, so that students may get to grips with the software, it is recommended that Students have a ‘foundation’ working knowledge of PaintShop Pro.

The course looks at various solutions for creating many ‘standard’ assets, associated with digital paradigms.

As with all of our courses, each lecture is based on a hypothesized scenario, showing ‘real world’ cases and how best to use the software to achieve specific goals.
