Don't risk not knowing Photoshop in any field of Business!

For the Entrepreneur When you’re starting a business with little money, you need to bootstrap. Bootstrapping means you pay for and learn how to do it all in the beginning, including the designing of your items with programs like Adobe® Photoshop. You have very little time and NO idea how to go about it. You wear many hats and making your own content is one of them.

Welcome to this course. You will be introduced to Adobe® Photoshop where you will learn quickly how to design things such as business cards and print advertisements. With a low monthly cost of Photoshop, you will have the skills and know-how to build whatever you need quickly and efficiently. With dedication, you will learn business specific Photoshop projects in less than two hours!

This course walks you through such things as setting up your workspace (and what it is), color modes, masking, making a full-page ad and a business card, shortcuts, and others as well!

This is an accelerated Crash Course. You will not only learn how to use the program but you will learn how to use the shortcuts to save time. The faster you learn to use shortcuts, the faster you will get your projects done, and that’s money saved.

Let's take it one step further and remove a background with multiple colors.
