Creating Graphics For Social Media

One Day Course


Visual content works. Research shows that people are 44% more likely to engage with content on social media when it contains pictures and images. As a result, social media gets more visual every day.

This course will teach you how to create powerful graphics and images for use on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest and any other social network you can think of. We’ll be using Adobe Photoshop during the course but don’t worry – no previous Photoshop or design skills are required – we’ll teach you everything you need to know! You need no previous experience to attend this course.
