More about this course


  • Just about any version of Photoshop. Preferably Photoshop CC. CS6 is fine, but not ideal. Lightroom or Elements are not ok!
  • There will be a few cases where we'll use Adobe Illustrator, but just to copy-paste some resources, nothing more
  • You need a very BASIC understanding of Photoshop.


Please go to lecture 4 to see all the projects included in this course!

Hey! I'm Chris Barin, Adobe certified Photoshop instructor, web & app designer, and entrepreneur. This course is a must for everyone that needs any type of graphics for their business or career. This is all about content creation! You'll learn how to create all sort of designs that are very much required in today's digital age:

  • Clickable Facebook Ads;
  • Instagram Posts that will get you tons of likes;
  • Youtube Thumbnails that will get you clicks;
  • Newsletters that will improve your open-rate and click-through rate;
  • CVs (Resumes) that will get you hired or promoted;

  • Product Catalogue for sales agents;
  • Indoor Banner Ads for various promotions;
  • Beautiful Cover images for your social media profiles;
  • ... and much more!

All these projects are going to be done in Photoshop, but the great thing about it is you don't need any serious experience with it. As long as you have a very basic understanding of the program, I'll teach you everything you need to know. In case you never opened Photoshop and you have no clue about it, then this course may not be for you.
