Introduction to Adobe Creative Suite

Introduction to Adobe Creative Suite

Adobe Creative Cloud (CC) includes a suite of creative applications such as Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and more. Using these applications, you can work on your creative projects on both your mobile and desktop devices. You can design and create using photos, design graphics and illustrations; edit video; and create UX design. This workshop offers an overview to the most frequently used applications available to the CC user, and will reveal many of the features and resources that help you make the most of your Creative Cloud subscription. You will get a hands-on introduction to InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator. It is a perfect workshop for those new--or somewhat new--to Adobe Creative Cloud. If you are pursuing the Digital Design Certificate Program, it will give you a good Adobe knowledge base for the more focused workshops in the Certificate Program. Some familiarity with Adobe applications is helpful, but not necessary. Previous experience using Windows/Mac OS is required.

(This is part of the Digital Design Certificate Program, but you do not need to enroll in the program to take this workshop.)
