Why Photoshop?

There are three Adobe apps – Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator – which are core graphic-design workflow tools that work seamlessly together and, in many cases, overlap in terms of possible outcomes. 

Photoshop is dapper for anything photo: simple image resizing and recolouring, including in batches; creating layered montages; exporting for web and devices; with a humongous library of real-time filters and effects to make creations pop. 

How will I learn?

For those without any Photoshop experience, our training begins with a tour of the workspace and basic tools before moving on to loftier objectives. After that we have a collection of suggested pathways you can follow or we can apply your newly acquired skills to any custom project(s) that are relevant to your goals.

All our courses offer a choice between Adobe software or our free alternative, we're committed to ensuring nobody is excluded due to low income.

If you have any questions about this training please email us at or call 0113 282 9146.

More knowledge incoming!

We're passionate about the apps and software that we teach and we hope to pass some of that on to you.

These skills can make you powerful so, to make your training more of a learner journey, we'll send you a hand-picked book relevant to your chosen discipline when you sign up for at least 6 hours of training.


Who is this training for?

  • Hobbyist or professional photographers.
  • Digital content creators.
  • Graphic / web design students and professionals.
  • Marketing students and professionals.

What's covered in this course?

Our dynamic training quickly snaps to learner skill levels and aims but broadly:

  • An overview of Photoshop workspace and tools.
  • How to prepare images for print, online and devices with differing screen sizes.
  • Integration with Adobe Illustrator.
  • Yes yes OK, we weren’t going to mention it but… we will show you how to swap people’s heads around on a photo if you really need to know 🙂

Will I get a certificate?

Absolutely, but only if you want one. You will be provided with a certificate of attendance and we can optionally add specific achievements and skills learned to the parchment.

Our training is dynamic so we reduce time spent learning tools or techniques that are irrelevant to your chosen path unless they are fundamental to the software and best practice workflow. That's why, for now, we don't issue one-size-fits-all certificates.

What will I need for remote training?

  • A stable internet connection.
  • For Adobe training, a full or trial version of the relevant Adobe app(s) installed on your desktop or laptop computer.
  • For free software like Inkscape, GIMP or Scribus, a full version of the relevant app(s) installed on your desktop or laptop computer.
  • For shared video display with remote control access: Google Meet and Google Remote Desktop.
