Word Swag is an awesome application for your smartphone or tablet that will allow you to easily create social media graphics.

The toolset in Word Swag is amazing because it easily allows you to import some great photos from their library, Pixabay, or from your own photos. Once imported, you can add some really cool text and fonts and then easily share them with your network.

You will get an overview of the interface and how the program works. Then I will show you how to import images to begin creating right away. After that we will take a look at some of the best text and font editing tools ever seen in a smartphone application. Finally, I will show you how to use custom colors and filters in your design before exporting it out as a final image.

At the end of taking this course, I encourage you to upload the image that you have created to this class for the rest of us to see. I love checking out what my students have created!

So if you want to start creating amazing images and graphics today, then go ahead and enroll and I will see you in the first lecture.

My name is Jeremy Deighan and I am thrilled to be a part of the Udemy team of instructors, helping others achieve their own personal goals. I have had quite the range of skills and hobbies through my lifetime. I really enjoy teaching and hope to provide information to others on anything and everything I know how to do! Please take a moment to check out my courses, and if you take any please leave a review and any feedback you have!

Art and Design

I have an extensive background in different forms of art and design. I have an associates degree in Computer Animation and I've worked with various production houses to create awesome content. Adobe Photoshop has been a staple of my arsenal since I was 16 and use it faithfully to this day.

I also have a history in live visual arts, specifically lighting design for music events, festivals, theaters, and corporate gigs. My passion for the visual arts has helped me become a master in understanding lighting, color theory, and composition.

Music

One of the first things I did as a young lad was learn music. Music is so powerful and one of my favorite things in life. I love playing music, and have played on various instruments; including guitar, bass guitar, drums, and the saxophone.

I feel music can provide so many emotions and feelings, and also has science and mathematical characteristics. It is such a fun topic and I can't wait to begin creating courses on this subject.

Math, Science, and History

I can't tell you what the latest Kardashian is up to, but I can definitely tell you a lot about Crab Fisheries and the Egyptian King Khufu. Typically when I am studying something outside of the art and music realm, it has to do with math, science, and history. I'm just drawn to man's accomplishments and new ways of thinking about things!

Healthy Eating and Exercise

To live a long and balanced life, you need to eat right and take care of your body. It's a mission of mine to make sure that I am in the best physical shape so that I can be around long enough to provide for my family. If there's any courses that I can feel like I really can give back, it would be explaining to others how to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I mean, if you're not healthy, how can you help anyone else out?

I've also been very active in sports throughout my life. Usually, these are extreme sports such as skateboarding, surfing, and snowboarding. I'm also a big fan of running, mountain biking, and have taken various martial art forms in the past.

That explains a little about me and my background. It also gives me focus on some key things that I would like to teach in the near future, so look out for courses from me on these topics!
