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!
