Trending topics are all over the place on social media nowadays. And while they seem trivial, trends are actually opportunities in disguise for individuals and organisations. They can get your message heard, drive traffic to your website or blog, increase followers and even better: sales.
To accomplish this I’ve created a well rounded and easy to follow course for creating attention grabbing content in the king of all graphics-editing software: Photoshop.
In this course we’ll be discussing the ingredients for creating effective content for Twitter and Facebook and you’ll learn tools and techniques to create great images in Photoshop. And when you're done with the final chapter, you'll be an expert in saving your creations for the web.
Made for Mac and Windows users and infused with a plethora of time-saving keyboard shortcuts, this course is your best entry in the fast growing field of social media marketing.
This course is taught by an Adobe Certified Expert and freelance trainer with years of training experience and will be updated and supported through time. Your faith in this course is an investment in your own growth and one that will only become more and more valuable as time passes.
A list of some of the topics:

get comfortable with saving images for the web
two projects, created for this course and explained from A to Z
and much more!
Whether you're a startup, a non-profit organisation or a seasoned business, this course will teach you skills in image editing, content creation and social media marketing that will take your venture(s) to the world of web 2.0.
This course includes the exercise files you need to follow along, and it targets people that are novice/beginners in the topic of social media marketing and use of Adobe Photoshop.
It is structured in such a way that we'll begin slow and add some complexity as we go through the different lessons.

Hi, my name is Mimo and I'm a freelance instructor with a passion for teaching others to get the most out of their favourite pieces of software and web-related technologies. My motto, learning by creating, is something I feel strongly about and a topic that comes back in every course I teach. Be it offline or online.
I work as a freelance trainer and I'm also an Adobe Certified Expert with knowledge and expertise spanning almost the whole range of Adobe products. Working from the Netherlands, I've taught many individuals and a couple of organisations in subjects like: design, photography, 3D, marketing and more.
I am an active participant when it comes to my students so putting your faith in me, is having an expert by your side. I believe in quality when it comes to learning and don't worry, there's always something new to learn when taking a class from me.
My method of educating is an ongoing process of refining and adding to existing materials, that's why all the courses I teach get lectures added to them through time, so any course you follow from me will become more and more valuable as time passes.
