When taking this course from home or office, students can use either their PC or Mac hardware to attach to the hosted Windows-based Adobe software.
This course includes the most important features of Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop! It is an introduction to Creative Cloud overall, including using the Creative Cloud panel and other services included in a Creative Cloud subscription. In addition, you will learn the Core Skills required to work in Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop.This course will prepare you for Advanced courses in these three applications.
*** Version Note ***
Our Creative Cloud classes upgrade to the latest CC version as soon as new training materials are released from Adobe. Typically new content is available within 2 to 4 months of a software release.
This course is appropriate for beginners and for anyone who is self taught on the basics of Creative Cloud. Quite often even experienced users find they benefit from a Core Skills class to fill in the gaps in their knowledge.
Basic computer and file management skills are required for Core Skills level Adobe courses. Students should know how to: locate, copy and open files; create folders; arrange, re-size, minimize and maximize application windows; start and exit programs; manage use of multiple programs simultaneously; and switch between open programs.
